Bid accepted...


We woke up this morning so that Travis could go see the house.  The owners were just wrapping up a meeting with their agent, so we chatted for a few moments before going in to look around.

They accepted our bid!  Our letter must have done the trick :)  We are such house enthusiasts and I know people pick up on that when they are around us.   Travis is already scheming about the kitchen and what cool stuff he can do to it.  I am busy picking out paint, because that is my comfort zone when I hear words like "termite inspection" and "insulation repair"...
planning on a redo of the stairs to have it open to the front of the house instead of the side.
 Also, lots of landscaping redo to do...

Old homes, right?  This will be the oldest home we have ever had, the smallest home we have ever had, and will probably be the most work we will ever do.  I'm assured by friends we will do fine, and I've even had some of y'all tell me how rewarding it will be.

By rewarding I hope you mean that I come out with my sense of humor in tact...

So that's the news.  We got the house.  Inspections are next Wednesday.

Bring it.

  8. eeeeeeeeeeeeeeee how exciting. You may not think of this (I didn't) because you are young ....I have loved restoring life into old houses and gardens and doing most of the work myself ....but now I am 64 and I still do the work but it takes much, much longer (more breaks) and when I plant a tree I realise I will probably not see it grow to it's glory So .... enjoy your new home and the work and focus on the doing and the planning because the memory will be immeasurable.

  10. Congratulations on your new home! I just moved into my wee cottage last week. I wasn't even looking for a house and had one in 1 week's time. When it's meant to be it happens quickly. Have fun!!! Hugs

    1. The kitchen. We are going to gut it and rebuild the entire thing, including pulling the sheetrock off the ceiling to see what is underneath it. HOping for a planked ceiling or we will replace it with beadboard :)
