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 […]

Moving on Up!!

It’s official. The Enginerds have moved out of the Maison and are now living in temporary housing until Château closes. Woop woop! Leaving the keys was a bittersweet moment but we were ready to embark on the next 15 year journey together. The house had been with us 10.5 years and it was too small […]

My Beef With “Pet Friendly” Hotels

You’d think that finding a pet friendly hotel would have been easy since it is a trending subject but after a thorough search of rooms near us, we found only one that really was all inclusive of pet breeds: La Quinta Inn. A few Best Westerns and one Extended Stay America were willing to take […]

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 […]

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 […]

Moving on Up! – Extreme Makeover Home Edition

Turns out that the inspection showed that the roof of Maison Enginerd needs to be replaced due to defective material. The shingles, made by CertainTeed, have visible granule loss and deterioration not common to ten year old roofs. So, what gives? A check of the internet confirmed our worst suspicions: the material was manufactured incorrectly […]

A Trip Down the Stairs…

In the middle of the move, packing and painting the old house, I managed to slip and fall down our stairs. My behind slammed down on two steps after a second of airtime which is about 175+ lbs of force right into my glutes. Needless to day I am literally going to be butthurt throughout […]

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 […]
