I have been busy with the work needed to sell a house. I could not bring any of the outside gardens and landscape up to a good level. I did get some stray trees trimmed back but there are a lot more to do. I may not get to that thought.
In three weeks the signing of papers will take place turning this over to some creative flippers. They have the history of gutting out the insides, creating new floor plans, and finishing things in modern style. The precence of a 1916 styled house will be gone. I have owned it since 1976 and I am relived to be done with the sale. The process was not fun and I am just letting go of all the difficult problems.
The derecho did damage to our roof earlier and a horrid hail storm put holes all over the three year old shingled roof. The price of the new roof was deducted from the selling price and I get to just walk away from it. The whole town has been through a lot with the strong winds a year ago and now the recent hail storm. Farmers have been hit again for the second season.
I have a couple of more trips to the old place and then I am done with the property. I will have to keep paying utilities and the lawn mowing person. Thanks for stopping by today.
