Today is 11/11/11 and again it has been awhile since we've made an update. The house is coming along nicely and short of the light fixtures, the exterior of the house is now done. For the interior, all the trim work is completed so all doors and their frames, the window sills and base boards are all done. Major items left are the flooring, cabinet installs, paint and fixture installation.
On the other front - we are FINALLY under contract for our current house with a projected closing date of 12/12. Their is a contingency on mineral rights but that seems to be panning (no pun intended) out. The interesting things is that we still have another showing on the current house tomorrow. Both the agent and potential buyers are aware of the contract so hopefully we'll get a backup offer in case something unexpected will happen with the current contract.
Tomorrow we'll start apartment hunting since the dream house will not be ready by 12/12 and we still have the option to lease it back to our builder as a model for a couple of months to showcase some of the more interesting aspects of our new home, if that makes financial sense to do.
