Plan A: Sell the house
Plan B: Airstream restoration
Plan A has been bittersweet experience. Bitter because it was exciting to have all of Denver's hard work pay off and that didn't happen so now we're disappointed. Sweet because we had no idea where we wanted to move and now Plan B gets to happen.
We might try listing the house again in the spring. Once the banks have a few comparison sales and the assessors aren't three months behind and we have a beautiful airstream to call home. At this point though, we'll just be thankful that we don't have to move all that crap out of the basement this weekend and try to be thankful for this good solid reminder that life isn't in our control or our time frame.
Denver found a 1978 31ft Sovereign Land Yacht on craigslist and hauled it home the day after the sale fell through. The shell is in relatively good condition, (no leaks, missing panels or large dings) and the interior needs to be completely gutted. It's estimated to take some 250 man-hours simply buffing and polishing the exterior so Denver will have plenty to keep him busy. If anyone wants to do some karate kid camp stuff you know where to find us. Maybe a little more on the wax on...wax off and less on the karate.
