A day late and a dollar short

When we moved into our new (to us) house the lot next door was for sale.   Our lots here in this neighborhood are rather small and the houses are fairly close together.  We decided that if the price was right we would like to buy that lot which would give us some nice open space to one side of the house.  As it was we were already mowing a portion of the lot and the kids could use that area for kicking around the soccer ball, etc.  Hayden even wanted us to put a swing set there! 

The only thing stopping the purchase of the lot was the necessity of selling our other house.  Once we had the proceeds from the sale of that house we could purchase the lot.  Alas, one month before closing on the old house the lot sold (after being for sale for at least 2 years!)

Turns out a builder purchased the lot and this past weekend preliminary work began.

The lot is right outside our bedroom.  Guess there won't be much sleeping late for a few months as they build the house.

That is a bummer, Corky. But I'm glad to know that you have sold your previous house. Earplugs might be in order for those few months!
