In the endless quest to buy the BIL/house, I have completed another step. The home inspections (radon, pests, plumbing, elec, structure/roof, etc) are all set for Thursday... really, except for the radon test, which takes three days. I just hope they can get it all done in three hours, so I can leave and get the Pirate to her afternoon appointment on time. Our biggest concern is still the roof framing/trusses/whatever. I do hope the inspector says a further inspection by a structural engineer is unnecessary. And may I just note here that I despise keeping our dog in this apartment. He needs space, and exercise. And I need him to stop being under my feet.
