Today I got the most wonderful phone call from our awesome banker Lana. And it said that we have been approved to make the changes to our mortgage to temporarily cover both properties! We can move to the acreage we wanted to buy and then sell our house in the city!! Which will be so much easier not to mention we don't have to stress over running out of time right away.
**happy dance happy dance happy dance**
The 3 happiest days in my life: getting my 1st horse, marrying Pie and finding out we are getting our place in the country. lol
Seriously though it seems like a long time coming - we've been looking since the spring of '07 :o
And while not "perfect" this place will be pretty darn close to perfect for us. There is just over 70 acres. It is 20-25 minutes from our work.
The house is a teeny bit bigger than the one we're in now and is move in ready. There are a few small things we'd like to change, eventually.
It is set up for horses, including horse friendly fencing. There are pastures, corrals/pens, automatic waterers in the pens, a hay shed, a hay field (30 or so acres of the land is hay field) a shop for Pie (floor is dirt and he wants to change it to cement). OH! A barn! :D
The garage is a 2 car, detached from the house but very close to the house (which isn't a plus or a minus to me) which means that my little Equinox can continue to be in a garage and Pie can finally park his truck (Chevy Silverado) in a garage too lol
More horse stuff - there is a nice outdoor arena, a roundpen and the neighbour has an indoor arena (I can see it from my back door!)
There is a root cellar, a Saskatoon berry orchard (although I don't like them they are a very popular berry). A kennel for the dogs. A nice big yard. LOTS of trees... and it was bald prairie before the original owner planted all of the trees. Good neighbours.
I am freaking out! In a good way of course lol. In just over a month it will be ours :)
I have to say a huge thanks to all of you that were praying for us that our dream would come true. As well as a big thanks to my F-I-L "GK" for helping us out, even though he really would rather we stay in the city. So "Thank You!!"
