Home Ownership

In case you don't read Kim's blog, then this will be news to you.  Kim and I are under contract for a house.

We had the home inspection March 16 and the only thing of note was the radon readings were pretty high.  The EPA reccommends mitigating radon when levels are at or above 4 pCi/L, our test came back at 13 pCi/L. We had been afraid this would be the case and worried that we would end up paying for it. We asked the sellers to take care of and they said "ok."

So with that simple "ok" the path to homeownership looks very clear. May 1 is the set closing date.  We are very excited and have all kinds of plans about things that we want to do to our new house.  It's also nice timing because of the first-time homebuyer tax credit that was approved recently. Yay!

One last thing to make the whole event a little more interesting is we are going to be leaving for our Ireland trip on May 16.  Plane is booked, Iron Donkey is booked, and we are discussing things to do on the last week of our trip. It's going to be the culmination of some three years of dreaming.  We're very excited about that too.

Just a lot of excitement all around, as soon as we get into the place I will post pictures.  Until next time!
