First Hurdle

YIPPEE, We just got a phone call from the contractor who checked with the building commission's office. They said that we could build back 20 feet. This is good news as we desperately want more room! He is supposed to be sitting down at the computer some time this week to make floor plans and an estimated cost. If all goes the way we want, we will have a total of 5 bedrooms!!!! I am so excited. The next hurdle will be the cost factor and if the bank will allow us to add the amount we are expecting to the cost of the home. I will continue to pray and hope you will too. As soon as we hear something else, I will let all you know. Pray for low cost, (we plan to do all the painting ourselves) and for bank approval. If necessary, we will ask to see if there is anything else we can do to lower cost, for example finishing dry wall, any volunteers????
