    Sold our house, warehouse, and 8 acres of industrial property in May. The buyer is working with the county to get permits for his trucking company, so he is allowing us to stay here up to a year. I immediately found a small warehouse to move my business to, then started looking for a place to live. Stumbled across a small development in a nearby town that really appeals to us, so we got ahold of the builder. He had three already started , but they weren't what we wanted. He suggested we come and look at the plans for the next two that were just having the foundations poured. Wifey loved the floor plan. It's a little more house than we need for just the two of us, but you have to keep resale value in mind. We like the location, and the builder does really nice work, so we picked one, and laid claim to it. Unfortunately he doesn't have all of the title work done yet, so we don't have a contract, but he's getting ready for us to start picking colors, cabinets, flooring, etc. I'm sure he'll have the paperwork soon. Hope nothing gets in the way. We have an "approximate" price, but nothing set in stone. We try to drive by every Sunday just to check the progress. He's started two more since we were there last.

    Here's what it looks like now:

    Luckily it's only 7 or 8 miles. We know it was coming, so we only replaced furniture and appliances if they HAD to. Most of it will stay here or get the garage sale treatment.

    In a few weeks I'll start moving my business from a 5000 sq ft warehouse into 1600 sq ft. Lots to get rid of. I've already taken down 3 rows of pallet rack and boxed things up for the move.

    New house! If that house was in my neighborhood it would be worth a ton. Anyways, I moved this year and it was a real hassle. Moving the audio collection made me wish my hobby took less space, like watches.

    Congratulations!

    (That has to be the strangest looking roof system I've ever seen!)

    Well, it's been awhile, but today we signed the contract on the house. Doesn't look much different on the outside than in the last photo. All of the sheetrock is up inside, so they can stucco the outside now. We meet with a company next week to pick all of the colors, flooring, counter tops, tile, etc. Wifey picked the inside doors today. The garage doors and inside cabinets had already been ordered, but we both really like them She can choose whatever counter tops she likes. The outside is also partly stone, so we pick that, too. The house sits on a corner, and the 3 car garage/driveway will access both streets.

    Should be done first or second week of March. Will show more photos now that it's moving along.
