being patient

I am being patient with the house. It is weird to complain about how long things take when you don't actually know how long they should take.

Everything has been going smooth so far, the inspections were no super big deal. The mortgage is waiting at the underwriter, they are supposed to be done with it by next week.

The lease on my apartment was up in May and my landlord wanted to sign me up for another 12 month lease. I explained that I was looking for a house to purchase at the time, and no, I couldn't really do a 12 month lease but how about we continue our month to month and I can give a 2 or 3 month notice.
She didn't bite so for June I've been staying at my parents house in my sisters old room. Flower sheets and everything.

So I'm trying to be patient. I just want to get in the house and work on it. I want to put a hedgeline in the front and maybe an apple or pear tree.

Some pictures from the appraisal:


Very park-like and also, next to a park.


Not included in the floorplan is the ridiculous, non-code conforming 'finished' attic. No-one may sleep in that firetrap on my watch but we can definitely do some dual upstairs/downstairs shower-time
