Getting Ready

We have been working on our house for the past several months getting it ready to sell. The neighborhood is improving, and we figure this is a good time to put the house on the market. Two new homes were built across the street from us in the past 6 months, and they are currently on the market for 1.8 million. Dollars. It's a little hard to believe.

We had new pavers installed about a month ago, which required us to remove all the old concrete around the house, and have it hauled away. Then we had all the trees in the yard trimmed, and the flotsom and jetsom from the hurricanes hauled away. Our yard is definitely looking bigger. The houses across the street had some extra fill they were having hauled away, so we had the workers dump the dirt in our yard to fill in some low spots. For a while we had some lovely mountains of dirt which the dogs liked to sit on and survey the neighborhood. Kev and his friends loved the dirt piles because they could play army and dig bunkers into the dirt. Kev's friend Jared told us we had the coolest yard in Winter Park.

Right now the entire yard is completely dug up with trenches for the irrigation pipes. So far none of the utilities have been cut, which is a good sign. We have a landscaping plan, and it should all look really beautiful in about a week. I can't wait. It has been really hard keeping all the dirt out of the house for the past few months.
