I joined BWH about a year ago. *Being totally new to the self-sufficiency way of thinking...I was FULL of questions. *Questions that were very graciously answered!
Soon after joining our property search came to a halt. *We were still searching available homes and property but the hold up was the state. *We live in NC and the DOT is widening the road where we live now and, as part of that project, will be buying our home.
Governmental red tape and budget woes have affected the timeline. *We were first told an initial offer would be made this past September. *Then, December. *Then, they couldn't begin to tell us a time frame...LOL. *Is anyone really surprised by that??
Finally, we have a meeting with the DOT representative (next Tuesday) and will be receiving our first offer. *In the meantime, we've be veiwing homes...looking for just the right spot for us. *The link above will take you to a slide show of the home we toured yesterday and very much liked!
Oh, for frame of reference, we are in the foothills of NC.
