Today We Bought the Broughton Street House
I woke up this morning at 4:00 am and couldn’t go back to sleep. Today is closing day. I’m Kevin, my wife is Cathy, and as of today we own the Broughton Street House. It’s been a long journey of searching, researching, and preparing.
In preparation for closing I packed up our travel trailer and headed to Savannah Monday. I can work remote, which meant I was able to get some driving in during the day, stopping roadside for conference calls and video meetings. It’s usually a 4 hour drive from Atlanta to Savannah, but it took me 7 due to the frequent stops and lower speed that I drive with the trailer.
Overnight in Fort McAllister
Cathy booked me a site at Fort McAllister State Park. It’s close to Savannah, but across the Ogeechee river so you actually have to drive a circuitous route to get there from downtown. I didn’t arrive until after dark, so I set up camp and did some work without exploring.
As I mentioned
A Quick Closing and We Own the Broughton Street House!
After breakfast I went back to the trailer and worked a bit waiting for time for the close. Cathy drive separately and arrived at the walk through at lunch time, so we met there and did our final walk through. Then, it was over to McNamara & Adams to sign the mountain of paperwork. The loan was in order (Thanks, Ron!) and the closing itself went really fast. By 1:45 we were done and the proud owners of this amazing historic home!
Cathy had to head back to Atlanta to make sure the kids were good, but I stayed the week and prepared for our first guests. Nothing major, as the house was in great shape, just making sure the new internet service was working, setting up all the televisions with the new accounts, and going through all the kitchen drawers and such to be sure there are plenty of corkscrews and coffee mugs (I promise, as of today there are PLENTY!)
We are very proud to own the Broughton Street House! Now we can’t wait to share it with you.
