brunch at leena's, then looking at houses. they were all.. not good. until the one that we looked at because there was an open house sign, as opposed to because we specifically went to look at it.. turns out somebody somewhere came up with a house plan that is more or less perfectly designed for a four-adult two-pair household. It has two, identical-but-mirrored master suites, on different floors on opposite sides of the house. Also 1.5 other bathrooms and 3 other bedrooms. It is our new fallback position.
The RE lawyer we contacted is too busy, need to find a new one this week. Meanwhile, there were a few questions out of the inspection on nerdvana. They were trivial, which seems like a good sign?
