Wow..I missed a new twist to our local septic inspection procedures apparently.  I have had several septic inspections performed in the past month in Chisago County..and in prior years had them in Isanti County, MN.  Just called a local inspector to schedule one in Isanti, and he said he had hear...
This Saturday I had a display with one of my favorite lenders at the Cambridge Wedding Spectacular.  It was great seeing all of the families exploring their options as they get ready for a new beginning..and often that will involve purchasing a first home.  But should you wait until marriage to t...
