Well, it’s official – moving sucks. Last week was a total whirlwind of stress and anxiety. So glad that part is over! Even though we were pre-approved for a loan to purchase the new house and had submitted all of our paperwork over the past two months and were set to close in about a week and a half – a complication arose and we had to start all over with a new lender. For about a week, we didn’t even know if we would be able to buy a house at all. At that point it was too late to back out of selling our house, and of course we NEVER would have sold our house or even thought about selling our house if we had any idea that we couldn’t potentially buy another one. We also didn’t want to move into a house we weren’t even sure at that point if we could buy, but we HAD to move. So…we took the risk and started our move last Monday (since we were closing on selling the Brady Bunch house on Friday, that gave us only 4 days to move). We got word on Friday that we would indeed be able to buy a house, though I am not counting any chickens until we sign on the dotted line (which looks like it will be delayed 4-6 weeks). So, in the meantime we are living in our new (OLD) house and renting it from the owners until we make it official. So far, we LOVE it. We love the family friendly feeling of the neighborhood, the proximity to everything we do, and all the restaurants and parks and fun stuff like that. Here is a little sneak peek of the house we hope we will officially own in about 4-6 weeks. I’ve also been pinning away ideas for the remodel, which we are super excited about.
So, I plan to post more pics soon – but in the meantime here is a little sneak peek (brady bunch remodel doesn’t really fit this new house but I think we will stick with the name):
I guess you would call the style a cape cod with dormers – totally not our style but we plan to make it more modern…
The entrance/staircase up to the second level that has 2 bedrooms and a shared bath.
The main living area/dining area/kitchen. We hope to do an addition all across the back of the house which will extend out these areas by about 15 feet or so.
The lovely kitchen.
The downstairs bath.
One of the best parts about the house – huge backyard. The lot is about 1/3 acre…
