I am a psychic - my dream came true! House Mover Bob Hayden called me yesterday and he is still committed to the job. He wants to lift my house this summer and he's going to give me a solid $ number soon. (Though he estimated $25-$30,000.) It's an easy job, he told me. Now I'm very excited, though there's so much to do!

We have to get the house ship shape for an inspection by an appraiser.

Appraisal Goals:
Wood Floors
Finish the stairway
Stupid small stuff like outlet faceplates
At least window trim
Second zone of heat installed upstairs. (I doubt this will happen.)

I'm hoping to get the house appraised for at least $300,000. Praying, actually. We bought the house originally for $220,000 and it was appraised at that time for $235,000. I'm pretty confident that we'll reach or even exceed my goal - homes on Cape Cod are muy expensivo, our area is very up and coming, we have a good amount of land and a garage, plus all the improvements to the house itself.

I can barely contain the excitement - I mean, just day-before-yesterday near all hope was lost. But when I got the call yesterday, my energy was renewed. I began cleaning the house and put in all the electrical outlets upstairs that I had been procrastinating. Tonights task: finish painting the office.
