|Finally, the Bucksport property closing has officially taken place. We are now the proud owners of house and land - lots and lots of land (by our standards :) Land is being fully surveyed, radon water filters put in, and other long-distance home-owning activities. The real estate company is great to work with - they've been a joy. We look forward to taking up residence in the fall, when we return from the trip and have picked up the trailer full of tools and other household things (like my little piano and the wood stove). We'll have a pretty short stay, since the snow starts flying in mid-October - although Richard wants to try and last through Thanksgiving.
