Two, as in "Tuesday"....
Escrow closes, we sign all the final papers, and get the keys!
The "U-Boxes" will be delivered Saturday, and all the relatives are descending on the place Sunday to help us unpack, and move the stuff to the various places inside the house where we'll unpack it.
The fence guy will be there Monday (a week from tomorrow), and our in-laws son will bring the Bobcat by to pull ALL the old fence posts, and help reset the new ones, with the concrete properly built-up and shaped so the rain water runs away from the posts, rather than pool at the bottom, which is what caused the existing posts to rot out.
After careful evaluation of the existing fence, we decided to spend the extra money and just have that whole run replaced, and the single gate replaced with a new double-wide gate. It's going to cost about double what we had expected, but it will be ALL NEW, and coated with a "high altitude" version of a water seal product. Turns out the classic "Thompson's Water Seal" doesn't last more than a couple of years here due to the extra UV exposure compare to being at sea level. There's a competitive product made by a different company that's made for increased UV exposure, so that's what we'll be using.
Per our contractor, the new fence should be good for another 30 years, which is how old the existing fence is.
Then the tree guys are coming, and the cottonwood in the back yard will be reduce to an 8'~10' section of trunk, which "Chainsaw Mama" will turn into some yard art for us. The tree guys will also trim a large ash tree which has some limbs perilously close to the chimney, and they'll also take care of the large tree in the neighbor's lot which has a LOT of dead limbs hanging over on to our property.
Then the roof guys will come, weather permitting, and replace the roof.
And so, the adventure continues.
More to come, with plenty of pictures........
