The buyers have made a written offer on the house and if all goes
well, closing will be in 30 days. That means in 30 days I have to be out. My new house isn’t going to be ready by then so times will be interesting. I’m writing this to help me get my brain in order on the issue.
I’ll have to get a storage shed for my tools which I was going to do
anyway. I hope everything fits well enough. I’ll have to rent a
storage thing for my furniture and stuff. I could put it in the new
house but it would be in the way as I am working on it. That will
cost a few hundred for a few months but I guess it will have to do.
Hopefully it shouldn’t be more than a few months to get the drywall
I guess I’ll live in my RV for the most part and stay at my mom’s
house the rest of the time. I’m sure that will work out. I could
stay with my sister if necessary too. She lives nearby.
The most important thing now is to get the AC in the new house
operational. Hopefully that will be happening next week. That will
make working more comfortable. It is already reaching 90 degrees here
in Texas and the humidity is killing me. I have to actually work
naked to be able to stand it. Wearing any clothing at all is
impossible. I have a small window AC running now but it struggles to
cool the whole house without insulation. I’m putting the insulation
I got a quarter of the ceiling insulation done in one day so I expect
I’ll have it all done within a week. Then I can put up the ceiling
drywall board then start on the walls. I have a feeling taping and
floating will take at least a few weeks if not a whole month. I may
get help with that if it drags on. I know a guy.
I guess it won’t be too bad. It will definitely be an interesting
adventure not having a comfortable house to go home to.
It’s mid May now and getting hot. It will be 100 soon. I’m guessing
that I might be satisfactorily done and moved in around August. I’m
praying to the gods of air conditioning for their blessings.
I can do this. I can handle it.
I guess one good thing about being moved out of the old house is that
I will not have a deadline anymore. I can do as I please and take my
time. That’s the way I really wanted it to be anyway.
