Obviously, before any work on the house can begin, it has to actually be 'ours.' Because our diamond-in-the-rough is currently owned by Indiana Landmarks (a non-profit historical preservation organization), its board of directors must vote to approve our offer. The vote is set to take place at 9am ET. While we have been assured by our friends there that there should be no problems, after learning yesterday about a potential issue, I've been in tears today worrying. It has gone so well up to now, I should have expected something, right? Now I have to try to sleep and wait until we get the call. I think I will go clean something to distract myself.
I want to highlight for the record how wonderful the folks at Indiana Landmarks and the real estate agent there have been. Gentlemen, we are so truly grateful for your time, efforts and warm welcome. You'll be the first folks invited for dinner when the house is presentable!
