Must. Be. Patient.

That's us.  Waiting by the phone for the house to close.  So we CAN START TEARING SHIT DOWN.

It's been a long while since I have been involved in purchasing a house (and I'm only peripherally involved in this one), and I forgot how endless it seems waiting for all the paperwork, inspections, snags and etc. to be finished.

The inspector did not care for the "clean up" job the bank had done on the roof moss.  Which looked like they hired a hobo to climb up and throw a few clumps of said moss off of the roof and onto the back deck.  So now they're being required to do an actual roof cleaning and certify that the roof is okay for 2 more years.  Which pushes closing back at least another week.

Guess we shouldn't start packing boxes yet.  But soon, very soon.

I'd wait a week happily knowing the roof was getting fixed! Totally lol at your description of the first "fix"

I feel your pain. Waiting for construction to start on our house, which is really just paperwork, more paperwork, waiting for permits, and being uncertain how you feel about gigantic hole being dug in the backyard.
I was starting to wonder if just moving would be easier, but your post has reminded me it isn't!
