That looks like a great place, Tom! I see the garage doors under the house, looks like a potential tractor shop on one side and parking for Barb on the other?

Pretty big size place for being within driving distance of Boston........yard looks to be spacious.

45 miles away +/-  in New Hampshire  3.5 acres total

As per the wife, the whole thing is mine. All I have to do is shovel the snow off the car before I leave in the morning  (same agreement we have now).  it is going to be just like here before I built my shed. Everything sits outside in temporary garage and gets worked on in the garage when needed. Till I build a new bigger shed/barn?

Latest update

 

Well I'm just about homeless , the house is completely cleared out except the few things I need to survive for  the rest of the week. Closing is Friday and then it's official.  My wife and son are at the inlays already.

The house in NH (short sale I'm trying to buy) is progressing very well. The realtor is saying we should here from the bank earlier than expected , mid to late July.  Now I just need to get up there and start working. As usual in the construction industry, jobs run behind, start later than they should, so I wait patiently. I still am working down here so the $ is still coming in.

The problem of a place to stay down here has been solved with family. The problem is up there, Barb went to look at the short term lease option. That didn't go so well. They changed their policies , with the backlog of 1 year leases, they aren't doing the short term leases.  :mad2:  :mad2:  So the only option is living in a motel, hopefully if the sale goes correctly, for a month. Not the ideal setup but I'm keeping my focus on the long term .   

I am burnt out. working all week ,on the house at night , and moving stuff every weekend up north. I can't wait to just relax for a couple days, which should start soon. The best part of being homeless is no responsibility. :dancingbanana:  Maybe I can find time to spend with my family, go play with a tractor, get some rest.

Are you self employed? Every time I have relocated I have been given a place to stay till I found a place. Motel usually. Did it three times before I finally settled down back home

Union employee. Not technically an employee of the company you are working for. So they don't really help you out with that. The area we are moving to is growing faster than the rental opportunities .

My latest update.
I ended up buying a different house, the short sale wasn't going smoothly, so I had to move on. Similar house, actually a little nicer, and we close on it September 16th! Pics soon. My job has also changed, I took a millwork installation job instead of just a general carpenter job. I specialize in high end millwork so this is a much better fit. It's in New Hampshire so no commuting to the city either! Life throws curves and I'm adapting to it. Can't wait to play with a tractor or just sit on a chair in MY house again!!

Here's a couple pics of the house.

They eliminated one of the garage doors and made a mud room, need to resize that and add 2/3rds back to garage. image.jpeg no pics of the backyard as it's pretty overgrown. Plenty of space to play with the gt's to clear it!

How come 2 electric meters?  Doesn't appear to have ever been set up as a duplex.

My nephew( licensed electrician) says that if you had an electric water heater you could have a second meter for a discounted rate. Thus the second meter!

it's called an off peak meter. I don't think the power companies use offer much anymore, when I worked for an electrician years ago most got taken off when we did service changes

glad everything worked out for you, your old tractor is next on list
