Another bank down...

Well, another construction loan option bites the dust.  I am reasonably confident at this point that I am not going to be able to get a construction loan, which is a bit of a bummer, since it means I am forced to get a personal unsecured loan for the septic and well, which has a much higher interest rate (8-10% instead of 4%).  I will probably get started on that tomorrow.  I am also getting another quote for the septic just to see if it comes in any lower. 

After talking to the bank, I didn't have much time to work, since I was on the phone with them until almost 6.  I did get up there during lunch though and fixed the whacked connection from yesterday. 

I started to put the 3" waste line together, but it was rapidly getting too cold, the cement was starting to gel, plus I am almost completely out.  The 3" joints take a lot of cement.

So I stopped at Home Depot.  They do carry narrower sinks, like this one.  I can get it in all white if I prefer.

So I have a really nice spare sink if anyone needs one.

As you might have guessed, I decided room on the toilet that I will use multiple times a day is more important than a nice spacious sink that I won't utilize the extra space that often.  It is supposed to be reasonably warm for the rest of the week, so hopefully I can get the rest of the waste lines done this week, since I really need to get crackin' if I want to move in this winter.  I am also going to start working on detailed plans for the water source lines so I don't end up waffling on it for a week like I have the vent and drain lines.
