What a project! We have been in our house for just over 4 years. The scope of work it needed paled in comparison to what you are doing. We are still not done. Seeing your progress makes me feel like a loser! Thanks for the inspiration to finish mine! The goal is to be done this year.

This place was being sold buy a fighting family estate.:finger: It took us 8 :( months and 12 different revisions to the original purchase agreement :sonicjay: there is one family member :blah: that just needed to use every opportunity he could to stir the others up.:poke: The house was on the market for just a little under 3 years. At the end of the day we got it for 5,000 over what we thought we would settle for but we negotiated 100% of the mineral rights and are now receiving a bigger percentage from the Oil wells next door. :beerbang: The financing on this house and land got to the point of needing a PHD in what-the-fuck :naughty: in order to figure it out but at the end of the day my payment is less than $1000 a month and every quarter we get a leftover check from the Oil Company. :woot:

I'll play devils advocate here....

You can live in a truck, you can't drive a house.

Just before I bought my house I almost bought a LT ranger, a friend of a friend was looking at possibly unloading it. A small part of me wishes. The rest is glad I have a house.

If I didn't live on a lake I would want a large chunk of land like this. Lots of things to keep you busy even into retirement years.
