Win Some Lose Some

May 30th, 2017 at 04:20 pm

Back from vacation! It was great, and we stayed on budget! Yay.

Our home addition made crazy progress while we were away. When we left it was a hole in the ground. Now all the framing is up, windows are in, and they are putting on shingles right now.

Now for the bad news. Remodel budget has hit our original max. We knew this day would come, but still I was hoping for different. Waiting on a call back from the banker to find out what our options are. We are pre-approved for $12k more. But in all honestly it is probably going to take at least $20,000 to finish everything. Not sure if I am willing to take out that much more on a loan though. Ugh. Have to sit down and figure out payments and all that. I HAVE to start working more web design. That would easily cover payments, so I need to make it a priority. If husband got the new job he applied for that would also make things a lot easier. So many variables. Don't want to get in over our heads, so must tread carefully.

    Yay on the vacation!

    I think it is exciting to have something done like your home addition while you are away because the progress seems to be greater when you aren't there on the day to day basis. Years ago we had new kitchen cabinets put in. it worked out that we were away for part of the week and what a difference when we came home and found the new cabinets in.
