My wife and I were just given a once in a life time deal on a house right around the corner from where we live now, and I would be foolish not to take it. It is an excellent chance to provide a much bigger home for my family, and as a father and husband, I feel it is my duty to pursue the chance to provide.

The house is being offered to us privately, and the owner wants to move fast, and have everything finallized by the end of August, but with us having to sell our current house first, we don't have much time to get our house ready for listing. We have lots of items that must be kept in self storage, just so people can walk through our house to see the true room sizes and availability our house has to offer. We have our work cut out for us, and with our busy season at work just starting, our task will not be an easy one.

The house that we are looking at buying is being offered to us for less than what our half of a house will sell for. The new place is a large single home with 3 bedrooms, full basement and attic, lots of yard, and a detached 2 1/2 car garage with full attic storage. We are excite about this offer, and it really would be a blessing if it all works out for us. Everything is a go with the morgage company and the reality company, so now it's in God's hands to find us a buyer within the next few weeks.

Keep us in your prayers that everything will work out, a buyer will come very quickly, and that we can have our house ready for showing by next weekend. I don't have a lot of help with this, so my wife and kids will be doing most of the packing during the day while I'm at work, and I'll do the bigger tasks after I'm home from work.

So, with all of the work that needs to be done, I just wanted to let you all know that I won't be logging in for the next couple of weeks/months. I'll post updates as I can, but as of right now, I can't promise much.

Troy, I wish you the best of luck. But be cautious on a fast deal. Look close at the new place to be sure there are no hidden problems. Older homes can be notorious for them, as I know well with my own. But surely your neighbors can be trusted. Hoping all works out perfectly for you & family. Keep in touch whenever you can, as we'd love to hear an update when everything is a done deal.
Guess the garden has to be put on the wayside this year for you, but more important fish to fry!
OH.....and a 2 1/1 car DETACHED garage is super! No fumes from the GT's getting in the home! :thumbs:

Troy I hope you find a buyer quickly. It sounds like a great move for your family. Keep us posted! A 2-1/2 car garage...Nice! How many GT's does that translate to?

Troy, My family and I will be PRAYING for everything to go smoothly and quickly. It will work out my friend. Family is more important then GT's and you will be missed here, but take care of your family's needs and get back to us when you have time. GOD BLESS!!
