Goodbye condo….

Posted by andy on 25th August 2012

It’s my last night in the condo tonight.  Over the last few days I’ve moved 99% of my life to storage or family places, and the rest leaves tomorrow.  A frenzy of cleaning follows that, and hopefully a simple walkthrough with my buyer.  All things go correctly, and I’ll be collecting a nice check on Wednesday, and continuing on with my new home build.

For those that haven’t seen it, pictures of the new house build are out on that face/book sort of thing.  You should look for them :-)

Going to miss the up’s of the condo (no mowing, shoveling, etc), but I’m looking forward to the up’s of the new house.

On the market…

Posted by andy on 24th July 2012

No, not talking about my social life… but my house.  After a way too long fight to get the paperwork through the system (appraisals take forever here anymore), I have the green light on my new home build project.  It’s going to consume most of my nights/weekends for the foreseeable future, but I’m looking forward to it.  It’ll be nice to have a place built by the family, with a basement, attached garage, and such.  Not quite sure I have everything picked out yet, but after seeing homes for 30 years, I have way too much material in my head to sort through.

For those that never made it out here to see the place, my current digs.

Wish me luck…

Latest project

Posted by andy on 13th June 2012

For the sake of keeping things “simple”, I’ve historically used Facebook as my photo “sharing” setup.  Most of my family, friends, and the like knew that to see photos of… well let’s face it, my nephews, they just needed to check on my Facebook site.  I finally snapped on Facebook though.

I’ve got over four grand in my camera setup, and Facebook nerfed the photo quality.  Took ultra-sharp images and just killed them…  well, no more.  I finally pulled the trigger on a Smugmug account.

My Smugmg site

Feel free to hunt around there and see some of the fun my little nephews have.  And if you look carefully, you’ll find exactly one photo with me in it :-)
