Holding Pattern for P&S

August 31, 2005

The purchase and sale agreement is being drafted by our lawyer as I type here today. One of the wood stoves is well on it’s way to being permitted and the other one will be disconnected for us to decide on later. We could buy another stove that can be permitted (the one in the basement is old and it does not have its UL tag (which you need to get a permit). So, maybe we’ll re-locate it to the garage a.k.a. Man Town. Afterall, we must keep them men warm.


The Home Inspection is Done! Woohoo!

The home inspection went well. We need to vent the roof to prevent freezing in the winter and warping shingles and one or both of the wood stoves need to be permitted. That part is up to the sellers. 🙂 Other than that, we have a new home in great condition. And since I couldn’t be present at the home inspection, Nicole (our realtor) took a bazillion pictures for me.
