raise the roof!

It's official, we are getting our house!

Last week we had our roof estimate done, which came in much better than expect.  We asked the bank to go halfsies- and they agreed!  So we're moving along!  As of yesterday all of our contingencies were removed so we are hoping the next two weeks will be smoother sailing the the previous few.

This has led Ryan and I to start planning "Mordoff's-on-the-Move 2011".  We need to line up our u-haul, find boxes, buy a fridge and get packing.  We will have a lot to do in the next few weeks/months, but I am looking forward to it! Life's been blasé, and I needed a project!

We made a trip to Home Depot and Sears yesterday to shop for fridges.  We've also started to compile a list of things we need to do right away, and things that can wait.

First, we need to replace the seals on the two toilets.  Luckily this is super simple and there are many, many videos online.  Let's just see if the real thing is such a piece of cake!

We are excited, and I am excited to have something to blog about- seeing as my content river was running dry!  We'll keep you posted on the updates, and have a lovely weekend!


  1. Yeah - how fun! Don't forget Costco for fridges! And remember the time we bought a scratch and dent in WA? It lasted all the way through KS. Sign up for Freecycle and you might be able to find boxes - people are always giving them away there.

    Now you can blog beside the "Young House Love" gal. It will be fun watching the progress.

  2. That is awesome the bank is going to pay for half the roof! I can't wait to see photos of the house (and to see it in person too).
