We made it. Ron picked up our occupancy permit this afternoon at 3:30 pm, an hour and a half before the office closed on the last day before our construction loan expires. Just had to fax a copy to the mortgage company to begin the loan conversion process.
Even though there are still a lot of projects left to complete the house, it is legally available for us to move in whenever we like. It is an amazing feeling, crossing this finish line after the most insane year of our lives. Can't believe it's really over, feels like so much pressure has been lifted. Yes there is still a long road ahead to finish the house and get the tasting room ready to open the business, but we are ready for some time off to decompress. We have been pounding and pounding ourselves into the ground for so long to try to make it happen, and now it's time to pull back and enjoy what we've done. Will be laying low for a while, but will definitely be sleeping in the NEW HOUSE for the first time this weekend!!!
