Finally - The Perfect House!

We recieved good news today...our contract was accepted on the house we saw Sunday!  I think that we have driven by a hundred houses since we started looking.  I am so happy to be done with the looking and happy to think about making this house our home for a long time!

So here are the details:

  • the house is over 1800 square feet
  • the lot is almost an acre
  • we already know one of the next door neighbors
  • our kids will stay at the same schools they have been in
  • the house has huge rooms including a charming retro kitchen (metal cabinets)
So, we are excited beyond belief!  There will be lots of diy projects at this house and I look forward to sharing them here with you!

Well, the dream house is no longer.  Too many things that need to be done before the house could be insured or even pass an inspection + a seller not willing to do anything = a voided contract.

But the excitement is building - we put a contract on a home yesterday that would keep us in all the same schools, close to all the places we already go and accommodate our big family!

I will keep you updated!
