A Day To Remember

Today, July 28th 2009, exactly 13 months since my mum passed away, I handed over checks totaling $17,000 to the City of Pacifica and in return, I finally received my building permits. Not a bargain by any means, but a very exciting development and now, providing my loan closes in the next day or two, I can actually start to build The Minnie House!

Not wishing to let the grass grow underneath my feet (literally!), I met with Jim the Backhoe Guy today and he spent three hours hacking out the stumps and removing the lovely luscious top soil, which we will be storing on site and using later to backfill.

As soon as the contract with the construction company is signed and the loan funds, the big guys will come in and excavate, and begin to drill the piers and build the foundations. I can't wait!

Hi Steve:

Your site at Pacifica is gorgeous - I wish you the best of luck in your building your "dream house".

I keep following the LV posts as fell in love with the house when I toured in Missouri. I currently live in a suburb of Minneapolis - wanted to get away from high costs associated with townhome monthly fees, and move to a peaceful spot with trees, scenic view - unfortunately, that requires a move to the "boonies" (as cost of land is so high around here).

Either that or when my own Mother passes (currently living with me at the age of 98), I may move to California to be closer to my sister who lives in Placerville near Sacramento. If you happen to see a reasonably priced lot with trees on it, please keep me in mind.

In the meantime, if you know of any pet lovers, dog trainers, dog breeders, dog/cat show enthusiasts, would you please send them to www.Pets-R-Loved.com (way to contact me for you as well).

Hang in there Rosalyn
