    The slab is poured.... Ten guys showed up at 6:30 this morning with trucks and dogs and cigarettes and coke cans and arms and gloves and legs and boots were flying everywhere, and by 10:30 we had a slab strong enough to stand on. Kind of a whirlwind experience.

    Now, if only the bank would call with some good news...

    Excellent. You have beautiful land, and you have the makings of a house. It will all come through one way or another.

    Looks like you are making some great progress even with the bank dragging their feet on the project.

    Keep updating! =)

    6:30 am, Negative 15 degrees Farenheit, have to work outside today.... Anyone glad they're not me?

    But I have to say, the cold winter morning moon is incredibly beautiful.

    You have my empathy, it's tiring doing physical work in the cold.

    The full moon is lovely isn't it? I'm glad you are seeing life with a beautiful edge to it.

    If I were you, I'd put a heater of some sort in the port-a-potty.....

    *A Rant* (My first rant on Horse Forum! Hopefully my last...)

    I'm so frustrated! Still no $$$ from the bank! We call, we make appointments, we talk, and everytime either he can't see us or else he says, "Congradulations! Your application has been approved!" Shakes our hand, claps us on the shoulder...

    I think our banker has lost his marbles!

    Because the very next time we see him, it's "I am meeting with the board to see if we can boost up your loan." then it's "Congradulations! Your assessment looks good!" then it's "Your appraisal came in low; all of Maine is depressed!" then it's "Your troubles are over! Your loan has been approved!" then it's "Don't call me, I'll call you when I have news." and then we are back to "Congradulations! Your loan has been approved!"

    What the heck: is our banker senile? This has been going on since early September, when he gave us our first verbal okay, said he agreed that fixing up up our old house was useless, loved the new house plans, but told us to ask for more money.

    Two days ago we heard again, "Congradulations! Your loan has been approved!" Call me...ah... Monday!! This is literally about the eighth time! We really needed to have the frame cut by now (it is a post and beam).

    And of course, we picked the worst winter in twenty years to crash our house down. Still, the slab is poured and looks good, and the septic is in. We have radiant heating in the slab and the guts stick up in the air about 2 1/2 feet: TOTALLY covered in snow! So much snow, then ice... then snow... more snow coming...

    Have to say, it is the most beautiful Christmas I've ever seen.

    Is there any way you can work with a different banker? Perhaps someone who can stay on track might be better suited for your project.

    Anyways, I hope you get your money soon enough! I can't imagine how cold it is getting up there, even though the ice does make for some lovely photos. :)
