The survey has been done on the house and there's good news! The north side-yard which we already thought was huge (and were worried that it might not all actually belong to the house) is actually bigger!! The neighbor's fence is a few feet over the line!
We're not going to do anything about it just yet, no need to piss off the neighbors right away.
But, this is very good news when it comes to addition time, I've got a few extra feet to work with - Hello, walk in closet and soaking tub.
