Just A Recording Away...

The realtor and I did the final walk-through on the new place today. I am even more excited about it than before. It's way nicer than I remember. 

This is the front of the house...

The backside...

Looking west. Our property line runs all the way to those electric poles. The horse set-up will go just to the left of where I stood to take this picture (there's already water and electric there) and eventually an arena along that west fenceline....

This is looking north toward Mikey's place. Maybe 40 minutes or so cutting through the desert. All of the bare dirt in the picture is part of the property...

Standing in the dining room and looking into the living room...

The little office area off of the living room. I will put some curtains on a sliding rod and then when guests come to stay, there will be an extra bedroom. :-)...

Detail in the living room...

Looking into the kitchen and there is a breakfast nook in the back. The washer/dryer hook-ups and another door (which leads out to the driveway and garage) is back at the far wall and just off to the left is a nice little pantry/storage closet...

This hasn't been as 'issue-free' of a process as what we had hoped. The title company was horrible and I think we are going to have to have our personal attorney send a letter to the 'well manager' for the shared well. The bitch made up a $400 'transfer' fee and is saying that our share of the well costs is $75 per month. Because the title company was so horrible about doing their job, none of this came to light until the day of closing. WTF??? We paid the fee just to close the deal, but you can bet I will NOT be letting the well manager slide on her BS. That's one of the wonderful perks of having an attorney on retainer. LOL. ;-)

We was prepared for the recording to be done today, but the bank apparently forgot to get something notarized, so it will be Monday and then the place is ours. Free and Clear!! Whooo-hoooo

I have to say, as excited as I am about getting moved over there...I have enjoyed hanging out at Mikey's so much that I will be very sad to leave. The Fearless Farrier crew is just that freaking awesome!!!

Nice digs, looks like there won't be any major renos to make it your own, except of course, setting it up for horses. 40 minutes from Mikey- highway time or riding time?

Very very cool! A clean slate to make it how ever you want it!
So excited for you.

Riding time Shirley...and that will probably take some long-trotting on the good stretches. It's only about 15-20 minutes by vehicle.

I don't understand why there should be a monthly charge for a well. Once they're dug and in service they don't cost anything to run. I would think your electric bill would cover pump usage. Now, if it should run dry or some other problem arise, I can see everyone who uses it paying an equal share of the repair cost. Or is this to keep you from "forgetting" to turn off your hose?

Very nice! One of these days... I will just pick up Shirley and plan a road trip south!

pretty sure she wouldn't be too hard to convince

Do you realize that is 3 houses up from us!!! We are SO excited to have you in the neighborhood!!

Ms Martyr-There is generally a small fee to cover the cost of the well electricity and many shared well owners opt to pay a minimal monthly fee toward a slush fund to cover(defuse) the cost of well repairs/upgrades...But these fees are exhorbitant and I pretty much believe this woman just pulled figures out of her butt. I don't know if she is trying to recoup costs that they themselves have had to cover (since all of the properties are not developed), but our attorney will get to the bottom of it when he forces her to produce documentation. :-D. Cause I'm mean like that!! LOL

Carroll Farm-I knew you guys were near...Did not realize you were THAT close. How fun!! Can't wait to meet you guys.
