Château Enginerd is Getting Sewer Service!

For almost 6 months now we have been waiting for the new place because of sewer permits and delays in sewer construction.

Château Enginerd: The Final Countdown 

Well folks, the plot thickens. We miraculously landed a two week loan rate lock extension. Yay! But we are about to lose it, yet again, because our builder missed a few important dates because he went on vacation. To think we were moving out under the cover of darkness on Nov 28th and 29th sure […]

Happy Thanksgiving 2016!

This year has been horrible and it keeps getting worse. The election results… The DAPL… The resurgence of White Supremacy (which was always there though)… To top it off the Château will be delayed 3 more weeks and if our Plan A doesn’t work out, we will be officially homeless come November 30th. Many friends […]

“Ohh, we’re halfway there!”

The Château is still waiting for water and sewer connections but it is safe to say that once the permit ink is dry, the subcontractor will break ground. You’d think I’d be worried about the frost or the threat of snow but I am most concerned with moving Zach and our belongings over to the […]

Goodbye Old Friend (Maison Enginerd has officially sold!)

Maison Enginerd has officially sold and we are renting it for a few weeks until we can close and move to the Château. It is a race to the wire as we get ready to pack, pay the down-payment and transport everything to our new homestead. It is hard to imagine that things won’t work […]

Château Enginerd – On Hold

Our moving on up story took a turn for the worst recently when the water and sewer district postponed the work to hook up our utility connection. We don’t have a due date from the county and with a closing date of November 15th on our current property, this delay puts us close to the […]

Château Enginerd: Month 5…

Looking at my Facebook word cloud you can immediately tell that the process of selling and buying a new home has taken most of my attention this year. When I checked, we made the offer on the Château before Memorial Day weekend. That was five months ago! Wow. Time flies… I never thought the process […]

Yesterday, September 28th at the 11th hour, we got word from our realtor that our current house was under contract! Yay! The buyers accepted our counter offer and come November 15th they will take over Maison Enginerd. Woop woop! In 10 days or less the house will pass inspection and after that we get to […]

Moving on Up! Update

We thought that the new house would be ready by September 19th, moved from the original September 9th date and boy were we wrong! Our local utility district is taking its sweet time to come and hook up the water and power. At least we get our very own transformer! (Must be the AC load […]

Layoff Mrs Enginerd

Pulling All The Stops

My friends became concerned as month four of the layoff train arrived at the station. When the journey started I had a lot of fuel and a couple of cars with very few baggage. At each destination, Santa Cruz, San Francisco and San Juan, I delivered most of the emotional baggage I was carrying but […]
