We are finally able to apply for a loan! It took a lot of hard work to get the business plan done, but it is now completed (and pretty darn great if you ask me!). The house is still up on the market, and the wonderful agent we have been working with has kept us updated on the status just in case. I know she really cares about what we are doing, and even plans to book her daughter's wedding with us in May if we can obtain the property! It is such a wonderful opportunity and we hope that everything goes well for us as we apply for the loan.
While I had considered posting some of the business plan, I think that it might not be as interesting to all of you. So instead I'll just give you a few highlights:
- We will have two large suites, with king size beds and private baths
- The common area includes kitchen access 24/7, a sunporch, a deck with beautiful views of Fontenelle Forest, and a living room with a cozy fireplace
- We will be comparably priced with other lodging options in the area but will include a feature that no one else has - an eco-friendly environment!
Doesn't it just sound great? :) As soon as we get approval for the loan(s), we will place a bid on the home and start working on all the paperwork needed to get this rolling. We will also be purchasing our own web domain and transferring all of this blog material to a full website! Very exciting times for us.
Thanks for keeping updated, and check back again soon to see our progress!
