I swung by the house we are buying yesterday and, surprise, they’ve started building it! There’s wood framing for the lower two floors already in-place. Presumably the third floor will follow later ;-).
Pretty much all of the [annoying, repetitious] paperwork [of questionable value] is done, except for a couple stragglers related to the financing which we hope to [finally] tie up very soon. Then it’s clear-sailing until closing in October or November, where I am told that they will present us with more paperwork than any single human being could possibly process and understand in a lifetime.
Anyway, it’s got its annoying aspects, but the whole process is still very exciting. I’ll be glad when it’s done though ;-).
