It's just in the middle of nowhere. Very old house (part of the house is the original claim shanty) so it's assessed pretty low.

im sure bear is well armed for any occassion , my most favorite times in life were fixin the houses ive owned , including the one i now own that was on the market for many years till i bought it - in the 90s no one wanted this place built in the 60s and needing everything having nothing but its square footage and fantasticriver front lot to offer , ill kept and neglected , but i saw the light ....

it took me a few years of sweat equity and saving to pay for what i could not do well to get it done , it was worth every minute of that time and dollar of that cost , we expect to be here till they carry us out , im sure i will be first ,

I've learnt loads since we bought our house. It's still not finished and it'll be 12 years this May since we bought it. That also means the end of the mortgage! which should free up some cash to help finish it.
Work rate slowed when my daughter was born. The only advice I will give Bear is always aim to do a good quality job. Do it right so you won't be re-doing it in a couple of years. 
There is a "time versus money" equation with house projects. The less money you have, the longer it's gonna take; as I've found out!
It's nice to be important, but it's more important to be nice!

It seems to me that you guys are as excited as I am on this

I appreciate all the advice, Lord knows I need it. I am really looking forward to this move and hopefully it will be my last move.

we are - we are reliving much like we do with the rifles , it is a vicarious site - not really peeking toms , but that would not be out of the realm of reality so check you computer bug scan fequently , 

that said we are all rooting for you to have a successful life and live it in a comfortable place , we are in your court and if you need something we can offer ask -= its there for you , ive practiced architecture , performed major renovations on historical places ,  been an industrial contractor , and done my own houses three times in my life , remotely helped my friend totally remodel a cabin in the iron range lakes country to success , i rewired two hoses from the pole back in my younger life - not thinking to do that again really , but  i will offer the help if you ask ,

We rebuilt an old farmers cottage in South Wales literally from the walls up. It had been abandoned for almost 100 years & we had just the dry stone walls.
It helps to have 30 something members of a club, not just for the labor, but for the diversity of skills. It was a rewarding experience, a feeling of putting down roots for a change. Being in a very rural area you acquire unique (& daft) memories, like the morning I woke up craving coffee after a boozy night the The Lamb (pub so old revolutionaries from the welsh succession were hidden & captured there) & there was no milk. I looked out the back window & there was a field of (dairy) cows! Brilliant! we were om good terms with the farmer. So I took my mug of coffee, waded through the stream, climbed the bank scaled the fence & milked a cow into the mug for just enough. I figured I'd tell the farmer that night & pay for it then somehow!
Well I walked in the door of the pub & the whole place burst out laughing. Turns out the farmer'd been watching wondering what the heck I was doing! He'd never seen a cow milked into a coffee mug before!

I usually find the opposite, I drink differently if I think!
