Just a quick update to say that the lot we have a contract on is buildable! This means as long as the title is clear and the price (which is based on back-taxes owed since the 1980s) is where we need it to be!
Here is a look at the lot and where we want our house via an overhead printout from Google SketchUp:
This bit of odd-shaped land is .6 acres and faces solar south so it’s perfect for what we want to do! The area to the top of the image (the north) is higher is elevation from the bottom of the lot (which is darker green).
We’re really excited and can’t wait to close and start working!
