All is not lost…yet. I’ve heard back from my homeowner’s insurance, and they’ll cover digging up the sewer line and restoring the land after the excavation, and all I’ll have to pay is a $500 deductible and the actual cost of replacing the pipe. That’s a big relief, since digging up 300 East (which is technically State Route 283) will be costly in itself, but they may also have to remove one of the trees in front of my house, and possibly the sidewalk and part of my front yard, and who knows what else. I’m going to get ahold of a general contractor today to get somebody out here for an estimate, and then we’ll decide how to proceed. The contractor will have to give two different estimates–one for the insurance company’s part, and one for my part. If my part isn’t going to bankrupt me, then we’ll proceed with repairs and go from there. I’d still like to sell the house and get the hell out of here, but that could literally take years.
