A new house. My in-laws made an offer on a house in Ithaca today. Its a very nice place just down the road from the farm my dad has, and is within walking or biking distance from the mall. There were other people looking at it at the same time, so they went back to the realtor's office and did the paper work and put down a deposit. Now we just need to wait and see what the response is from the sellers.
If this goes through, which we presume it will eventually, Laurie and I will need to get moving on our own choices, since part of the scheme is that we will live in the new house for a while until we get a house built for ourselves. This means we need to clean up our house and get it ready to be sold, figure out where we are going to build, and settle on a design. We have already talked with the folks who will be our GC so that's set, but we need to get moving with understanding the formal process with zoning, building permits, and all the rest of it.
