We are moving along - and have had all the contingencies met and our offers accepted. We even have approval for funding - now we wait for the appraisal. It has been a roller coaster with the National budget issues and bank problems. For awhile we thought no one was lending money - then my brother had lunch with the president of a bank and mentioned us to him! And we were approved within a day! Gotta love those connected relatives!

Closing on our property is scheduled for 10/29/08 - keeping those logs crossed that all continues to go well. We are postponing the septic system until spring. So . . . . in the meantime we keep planning and dreaming.

We own it! Escrow has closed and we own our Lake Superior property. One hundred eighty five lake front feet - one of my life's dreams has been recognized through the grace of God!
Wow! Time has moved fast - but getting started has been slow. I cannot believe it has been 2 years since we started this with the purchase of our land. But I am excited to say - BUILDING HAS BEGUN!!
I haven't had time to post pictures - but I will someday. We are here in the UP working on our cabin. Changing the interior design yet again and loving life on the lake! The shell is completed, most of the windows are in, the roof is on - and now the finishing touches are being added. Then we'll proceed to the interior walls; fireplace; bathroom; and kitchen - then the fun! Decorating! But that's a long way off!
