Buying in Cooma [Jun. 25th, 2010|06:26 pm]
[mood |cheerfulcheerful]

We made an offer on a house, and they have accepted it, now we get to run around like mad organising things! Oh and hoping nothing happens to bugger it up.

Three bedroom, brick, needs no work done beyond some curtains, good size. That said, we will still be either building an office or garage or buying a fitted out shipping container for my stock and for guests to sleep in.

Shaz and I both love the house, and the big-arse backyard. Will be doing 30 day settlement, though we won't actually be fully moving in until after WorldCon. Don't want to move to a new city and then suddenly leave mum on her own there for 2-3 weeks while we show off bub and do our con-thing.

Also interested if there are pics. Now, the important thing. Is there enough room for all your books?

Books will probably be either in our rather large bedroom, or in my office, not sure which yet.

I want to say congratulations, I really do. If only from a "that's a step up in life you aspire to" kind of way.

What I see is that you've now locked yourself into an unssustainable system of debt and repayment that was viable for a few decades there last century.

But hey, given the option I'd live in a mock up of a TARDIS, so what do I know?

If you're all happy, then I'm happy for you. :)

I'd go the TARDIS option too, but failing that :)

Cooma's house are actually a fair price for what you get, so we're not too badly off.

OF course it does mean that any visits by me will have to be overnighters now...

How far away is it exactly?

First preference. Large flat block with not as much storage as we need, big back yard, no stairs, wood fire.

Woohoo, first preference!

So if I recall rightly, that means they accepted the low-priced offer so you have enough left over to pay for renovations, yes..?
