Of course I would be a slacker right after I exclaim that I'm blogging so much. But we've been busy; we just bought a HOUSE! It is not the one I talked about in the last post, they took another offer. I was initially very disappointed, but I feel really good about this new one. We do not close until the end of April, and it has not yet been inspected, but it is in great shape, so unless something really bizarre happens I think it's ours!
It's a cute brick house, 3 bed, 2 bath and a big garage. It's pretty outdated, it needs new carpet and there is wallpaper in all the bedrooms, but it is immaculate. And it has a groovy green stove in the kitchen that is original to the house, but looks brand new. (We'll see how well it works) It also has a basement that is unfinished, but is very finishable and clean. And it has all new windows. It's really the perfect amount of work for us, because we did want a project, but we don't really have the time or the know-how to do a major renovation. Anyway, we're excited!
I will add more pictures later, and will hopefully be doing several BEFORE/AFTER posts in the next year.
