Wildernest • Build
Follow us on our journey as we build our first and forever home.
You may remember my post, from back in November, about how we got our 4 private poles installed - then how they all got destroyed by a freak Nor’Easter about 7 days later. We have since repaired the poles, which only cost us $500 thanks to our pole guy being an incredible human being. None of the wires, despite like 4 massive trees on top of one of them, sustained any damage and the poles themselves just needed a bit of readjusting to get everything back to par. Finally, it was time for Eversour
July 10th has been my only concern this past month as we awaited our variance hearing. Every time I saw it on the calendar, or heard it in passing, it would trigger my anxiety and give me hot flashes. July 10th was the date of our variance hearing, which I talked about in my last post.
Over the past few months, we have been weighing potential options for getting power to the property. Because of that 900' driveway, it's a little more complicated than just having Eversource (the power company for those who are non-local) run a few wires to the house - there's a lot we're responsible for ourselves (and by that I mean our wallets).
Some of the things that come with waiting to build on our vacant land include dealing with insurance and how to protect ourselves from this sue-happy world. God forbid someone takes it upon themselves to explore our property, trips and gets hurt - everything we have ever worked for could be taken away in an instant.
