I made a huge mortgage payment today in the amount of $13,150 to principal. That brings our mortgage down to just over $35,000. We have about $28,500 in savings and over $12,000 in stocks. That means that we have enough to pay off our mortgage. I'm going to wait for a little bit because I want to keep enough in savings for an emergency if needed.
I calculate that we will need at least $20,000 in savings and our mortgage gone before we can build. I will really have to save every bit I can. Going to New York City will not help this at all but I'm still going and I'm going to have fun.
We are starting to get so close to building. We're still waiting to hear back on an estimate to build. Y revised our building plan to around 1900 square feet. We want a rambler with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. I'm so excited!
This crappy house we're living in will be gone :)
