A little at a time. I've done so much the first couple weeks after moving in. Blinds/curtains, light fixtures, ceiling fans, painting, wall mounting tvs, throwing cable through the wall to the media closet, and so much other crap. Just do the necessary first and a little more the next day, and so on.


And congrats!

It's hard to tell why without being there for the meeting. Did you look at comps? Did she explain her adjustments for different features in the comps? Looking at them should get you pretty close.

No, you got a $400 water bill this month is what you got.

Sod is great to be instantly green, but fuck is that water bill ridiculous to get it to take root and look good.

At least my town called me to ask if my toilet was broken or something before sending out the bill after my lawn got replaced in my back yard... Told them that no I just resodded, and they said "that'll do it" and I got my ridiculous water bill a week later.

I think what's tough, is you still could be a really good chunk of money away from having something livable.

that price doesn't seem or appear to include anything inside the place, or power, or water, or something for sewer/septic either.

i'd almost want to find out those deets before i made the trek.

It's well/septic and you are correct nothing is done. On the barndominium it's just the slab and shell, the power , plumbing etc etc has to be ran still. It's about 10k for the well and septic, the cost to get the rest done still unknown. Still let's say for 100k I have utilities and barndominium up. It's useable as a vacation spot until I retire. Then I build a house and make the barndo the car cave on 7 acres. It's still a very good deal

i am just always hesitant of developments like this... you hear too many bad stories.

i mean land down there isn't too much really.... you could probably find your own parcel and have it done better for less if you put in the leg work.

I hear ya, I am skeptical too. However I did call the city property assessor office and they did confirm it's legit. I also researched other parcels of land in that area. 2 acre lots are going for 5k so depending on location this price could be high.

So guys one thing im pissed about doing this whole house build thing is that I optioned in a 3 car wide driveway which they poured wrong (2car exit). They said they are going to fix it for the past month and have not. I got a closing date for sept 7th and I told them we will push if the driveway isn't fixed, no exceptions. The last thing I want to deal with is a promise after closing because that will take forever. I also think they are trying to time me out to just accept the driveway they gave me and credit me back for the option. What would you guys do? Otherwise the house is coming along great. Just miffed about the driveway

You asked for a specific driveway and payed for a specific driveway. I'd hold off closing until it's torn out and done the way you asked and were told it would be.

Agreed 100%, like you said once you close you know you will be waiting forever.

And now you're going to have some shitty angled seam driveway too. I'd be getting the 3 car wide and money back for their fuck up. Unless they want to rip that out and pour it even.
