    It is a weird situation, to be sure. We have done as much as we can with out personal resources; now we are just waiting on the bank... a big unknown. Here is the most recent picture of what our dooryard looks like. The ground is ready for the slab to be formed, and the pilings for the deck are pounded into the pond... now we are just waiting.

    Why is the bank dragging their feet? I would call them daily for an update stating you want to get this going before the snow really starts falling. Best of luck to you.

    The bank hasn't exactly said yes yet, but since we will be homeless as of next week, I am hopeful that they will. Wish me luck...
    I like the look of it. Very bohemian with a touch of Key West.

    Hey, thanks! Today the man who will be pouring our slab came by, formed it up and then we all blanketed the site to keep it warm. Our house design is kind of weird, and includes two children's toilets to serve as dog water bowls for our Newfoundlands. They produce a ton of sludgy drool, and this way we can just flush the toilets after they drink instead of changing their water bowls twelve times a day. Hope the bank likes it, but so far, no word.

    That is one crazy story. You must be so stressed with this going on. Hopefully you will get more information soon.

    I think you need to go to the bank with a set of drawings and the names of the contractors. Fly by night as no good as there are inspections that need to be done. Also you need to insure the house as work proceeds. A fire has been known to happen during the building phase.

    So, still no word from the bank, but we are working on stuff anyway. These are the plumbing ditches we dig this morning. Mine is the awesome one that heads straight out to the water; my husband's is the puny one that heads over to Ahab's barn.
