In order for you to see the placement of the lots in the gated cul-de-sac, here's the plat map just showing the lot numbers. Notice on the blue map (shown during the earnest money episode) that the Browns' are 'buying' lots 6-9.
So, almost four months after the filming, what's been happening?
From this snip from the last episode, notice the lack of construction occurring behind the Browns. Now, look at these exclusive photographs provided to the Sister Wives Blog and photographed in late June.
We see a lot of construction - in fact, it appears 2 houses are in the construction phase now, soon to join the original 3 houses from the season's end episode. Below is the view from the main road.
So what's happening with lots 6,7,8 and 9 on the opposite end of the gated cul-de-sac? Those are the ones the Browns are holding with their $20K earnest money.
Not much, in fact it looks like the only activity was the placement of some building wood frames, making the lot look like a dump.
- According to the Browns' children, 2 houses have been built, 2 houses are under construction
- All the lots (except for lots 1 and 5) are owned by the developer (according to the county assessor)
- The eight remaining lots are still available for sale (does that mean lot 5 is developer owned too?)
If you ask me (and I know you're just dying to do just that...) I...believe the kids. Two of the houses have been built, two are under construction...perhaps in a different cul-de-sac. Or maybe even this one. And maybe since the family did not qualify for conventional financing, the family's entertainment company has.
Whatever the real truth is, it's going to make for an interesting continuing storyline, isn't it?
What are your thoughts?
