We successfully broke the law and couldn't be happier
July 10th has been my only concern this past month as we awaited our variance hearing. Every time I saw it on the calendar, or heard it in passing, it would trigger my anxiety and give me hot flashes. July 10th was the date of variance hearing, which I talked about it my last post.
It took 12 weeks after Eversource told us "30 days," but they're in
You may remember my post, from back in November, about how we got our 4 private poles installed - then how they all got destroyed by a freak Nor’Easter about 7 days later. We have since repaired the poles, which only cost us $500 thanks to our pole guy being an incredible human being. None of the wires, despite like 4 massive trees on top of one of them, sustained any damage and the poles themselves just needed a bit of readjusting to get everything back to par. Finally, it was time for Eversource to get in and do their part.
Even protecting yourself from getting sued can get you sued!
Some of the things that come with waiting to build on our vacant land include dealing with insurance and how to protect ourselves from this sue-happy world. God forbid someone takes it upon themselves to explore our property, trips and gets hurt - everything we have ever worked for could be taken away in an instant.
But we have the blueprints, the paint colors, & the dreams
Jay and I just got back from the Bristol County Registry of Deeds, where we closed on the 6 acres of land we made on offer on back in June. We now have the means to move forward with our journey and build the house of our dreams.
But back in June, when we discovered our property, things weren't as easy as they seemed.
