Our NEW House!

we found a house we want.
They accepted our offer, and we couldn't be more excited!
Now about selling our house.....
That's the stressful part! But all in God's timing.

Check out our new home here: Sunnybrook Lane

Right now, it's not all that great to look at. In fact, it's sort of the eyesore of the neighborhood. But it's amazing how we can see the potential! Nick and I are just chomping at the bit to get started! I've been spending the last few days absorbed in magazines and internet sites like Better Homes and Gardens and HGTV, scrambling for the best ideas! Oh, so much fun!

Here's a photo of the floor plan I drew from memory. Hopefully it's legible.

 Before house searching, Nick and I decided to make a list of the requirements that we'd like our home to have. We put a star by the ones that we simply cannot compromise on, and a dash by the ones that we might be able to get away without.

*3 bed, 2 bath minimun
*1-2 car garage
*basement with usable space
-privacy fenced yard
-dimensional exterior
*good, safe neighborhood
-low annual taxes
-open layout
-within 15 minutes' drive of Nick's work next year
*currently livable, but updateable, possible to sell for profit
-potential to build/ already possesses front of back porch or deck
* the feeling like we got a good deal

The amazing part about this list is that this home has it ALL, star or dash! And for the right price :) Praise God!

We close July 18, so expect a new series of posts, HOME REMODELING SERIES II.
