My new house

After 15 months, I finally got into my new house and it is wonderfull.....

15 months ago, my wife and I put money down to start building a new house. 4 months went by and they hadn't even started on our house. So we started getting worried at that point. Finally they started on it. We had some modifications for wheelchair clearance like a custom shower and widening all of the doors to a minimum of 30 inches. When it came time to close on that house back in October of 2007, they had turned a $17,000 credit into a $17,000 additional charge and I was . They refused to work out the deal so I walked away from a nice house. Immediatly, we started searching for another builder. We found one and they were great to work with. Everything was awesome. They catered to my needs and understood. They went out of their way to help me out. It was great. So we started the build around November and we got moved in this weekend. After selling my old house and living with my uncle for 3 months, I was happy to call a place home again. I just wanted to share my joy with my fellow MH'Ride Smart. Once I get everything set up, I may host a race watch party.

Here's the new pad.
HOUSE

A buddy of mine has a Z and we used to take it out all the time it is fun to drive. Then the dumb let it get repoed? What is worse is he had the money but just never made payments on it.
