Cliff talked for about an hour this morning to the man who will move our home. I'm not ready for all this stuff. I hate the unknown.
The home we're buying (hopefully) measures 16' by 76'. That's pretty darned big to be hauling around. There's a very tight turn when you pull off the highway and onto the road leading to our house. The guy is going to come out and see if he thinks he can make the turn. If he can't, we'll just be out of luck. I hope he doesn't wait too long!
That's the turn that will have to be made. By the way, it's rained here all day, and is still coming down. We were without electricity for over two hours this morning.
Speaking of rain, that's another thing: The moving man is backed up with homes to move because of the rain we've been getting. You can't move mobile homes to the country unless the ground is dry and solid because they weigh tons, obviously. They get stuck. So even if everything works out all right, it could be awhile before the home arrives.
I can live with that, though, if I find out we can actually get it in here. After all, we have a house to live in. Oh, it might complicate things somewhat, because we'd be paying rent on the place where it's sitting now. Which can be anywhere from $300 to $500 a month... WOW!
Our sources who told us what the moving costs would be were correct. It'll be $4,800 for that. And the moving man said the concrete pad needs to be six inches thick. If we pay to have the work done, that's $2,600, he says. If Cliff and a friend do the work, it's $1,500.
Ah, the man
from Aquila, our electric company, just called. He'll be out tomorrow
to tell us how much it'll cost to get the electricity put back there.
Anybody got any nerve pills?
