Very carefully!
Gotcha on the relocate of the bath. Main problems with that is getting the drain piping in.


Bathroom drains won't be a problem Kenny. The friends who live next door told us we could count on them if we ever needed anything, so I'm just going to run my bathroom draining through the bathroom window, into the neighbors bathroom window, and into thier toilet. I figure I'll just ring a bell to get thier attention, so they know that we're backed up and need them to flush. :smilewink:

Troy, I am enjoying reading about your good fortune with the purchase of your new home. After our last road trip to Virginia for my niece's wedding this past weekend, I haven't been on the site as often. I am so glad to hear that your dream home is no longer a dream but a reality. Congratulations.

Yes, Thanksgiving will have a special meaning this year. Everyone in my family will have something different to be Thankfull for this year, for sure.

I told Kathy, since we will be moving the week between Christmas and New Years, it won't feel like Christmas for the kids as there won't be a tree with presents all around it, and the house won't be all decorated with lights. I suggested we walk up to the new house the week before Christmas, and decorate the big holy tree that is located just off the front porch, with some colored balls, a star, and some ribbon. We are going to consider this house as a Christmas gift from God for the whole family and I think the kids would enjoy it, and make the Holiday season feel a little more special.

That is great to hear that you were able to get it. Now the fun of getting it like you want. Sounds like it will be a busy season for you.

Well, this past weekend, I started unloading parts and tractors out of the sheds, trying to get stuff packed up and ready to go. Fellow member Craig (ckjakline) helped us out, but I think he is giving second thoughts to helping again, or decided he won't be back, as we spent all afternoon on Saturday unloading, and it didn't even look like we put a dent in the project. (Just kidding Craig, and Thanks again for all of the help) The back parking lot looks like there is going to be a John Deere auction. Not really comfortable having all of this stuff sitting out there in the open, but not much I can do about it right now.

On a brighter note, looks like we will be getting a love gift, offering to pay off the mortgage balance of our current house, which means we will be able to settle on the auction house sooner than expected. We will actually be able to settle on the auction house by December 7th, which will give us three weeks to move everything before the December 28th settlement of our current home. If it wouldn't be for the early payoff, we would have to store all of our pocessions in U-Hauls or on open trailers, parked along the street. Now we will be able to take our time moving, and won't have to have 20 plus people over rushing around trying to get us moved in a day!
