Our renovation project is currently on hold. We had really hoped to be moved in by Christmas. But when we applied for the remainder of the sum we had planned for the entire project, the bank started tightening the screws. Apparently our former loan officer changed offices and was replaced by a junior officer recruited for a quick fill. She’s been a little over-conscientious and appears to be wanting to review every jot and tittle of our contract.
The apartment is effectively ready for residence save for a few critical projects that require this last burst of capital: stairs, kitchen installation and plumbing hookups. Without any one of these, we’re dead in the water. Please pray that our request will make it through the banks’ mechanisms smoothly and quickly so that we can finish up these last few projects and move in before the vacation ends!
