So! The first inspection is scheduled for Monday. Ka-ching! Time to open up my checkbook. Then my boss, a structural engineer, is going to take a look at it. The main thing I'm worried about is the roof, because even though it's only six years old, there's some serious wonkiness going on there, and I can't tell if it's a structural problem or just cosmetic. Here's what I'm talking about:
I'm fairly certain that roofs are not supposed to have waves in them. Looks like the roofers started drinking before they finished the job.
If the house passes inspection, then I officially apply for my mortgage, and the closing is scheduled for June 15, although realistically, I think it's probably going to be some time in July.
I have to say, even though I have run the numbers over and over and over, and I KNOW I can do this, financially, I am scared spitless. I don't think I have ever been so frightened in my life. What I am paying for housing is about to double, and again, even though the numbers work just fine, with contingencies built in and blah blah blah, I am scared to death. Is that normal, or is it just me?
And if anyone would like a lovely wagon-wheel chandelier,
come and get it! And take the wallpaper too, mkay?
