Today is a huge day at Formstone Castle. We’ve paid off the mortgage! We set an ambitious goal to pay the house off in 5 years, but still set the terms of the mortgage to 10. 8 years in, and during a pandemic, we’ve managed to scrape together enough money to make those final payments.

We were hoping to have a huge 4th of July block party and bash to celebrate, but Covid-19 has postponed that plan. For now we’ll enjoy the view from the deck and have a little champagne with Siri’s family over Zoom.
