House Update

July 29th, 2013 at 08:06 am

The workers are done with the inside of the house! The new gutters go up next weekend and the storage shed and the play structure get painted. That is supposed to be it. I really, really hope it is. They have spray painters so the painting won't take long at all. Hopefully that means we will be able to get it on the market in 8 days.

Although we might have a honey bee's nest that will have to be taken care of under the house. There are people on craigslist who are beekeepers who remove swarms of honeybees, so they might be able to deal with it. Mom wasn't sure, she just saw some honey bees going into a vent under the house, so she just suspects it. I haven't seen it.

I just want to put it up for sale. And sell it. And go house hunting. There are some nice small farms coming on the market and I'd like to maybe have the opportunity to actually buy one. I've seen three that at least in photos are perfect for our needs, and four or five that will do. I am really anxious to get started on the next phase of our lives, you know?

    The waiting is the hardest. I hope you can get the house on the market soon! It will feel so good to move forward.

    Anticipation! Hopefully everything works well.

    There was a story about a local bee keeper who has been capturing honey bees and he said he's been so busy, he has run out of room. I guess that isn't the case in other parts of the country.

    Good luck with the search. I hope you find something that you will love and adore. It really is exciting to be in the waiting/planning/eager anticipation phase. :-)

    Great news! I'd take the honey bees to your new farm if the timing's right or you can get a "foster" bee keeper.
