Word

We have the numbers in hand. The initial bid from the builder is about $1100 less than my 'this is the worst case scenario but probably incredibly realistic' estimate and about $80,000 more than where I really want the number to be. So, we're moving ahead. With nothing but blind faith that our vision is good and that one day, in the not so distant future, we will be looking back at ourselves and thankful we went forward. In other words, if none of that made any sense because I am really not making any sense at all these days, we hope the area will appreciate drastically in the next 5 - 10 years.

I don't know how to tell you this - I was cleaning up today and found the sale note for our first house. $31,000 total. That's Australian dollars, too.

I'm glad to hear that it's a go! (although I really didn't have any doubts - you two are crazy enough to do just about anything!)

I'll start posting pictures of the progress and maybe pictures of me with less and less hair as I pull it all out :)
