A number of my more faithful readers are probably aware that Lisa and I have been working on buying a house. It’s a beautiful house and will make for a lovely home for us. However, I had been skeptical about posting about it, as it reminded me somewhat of the Jeep incident (reference links), and I was afraid that if I brought it up, it might not happen.
Well, let me tell you – we’ve been approved! Also, the house has already had an inspection and things are perfect. It’s a lovely three bedroom, two bath home, 1650 or so square feet, in a lovely neighborhood in the southeast part of town (which, if you go west a few miles, isn’t so great, but we’re well past that section of town). It also has a sunroom that’s been fully finished/heated/cooled, so it’s like a fourth room with no explicit purpose. There’s a large great room, and a fireplace too.
We don’t get to close for like a month, but that’s okay. Fortunately, we only have to give thirty days notice where we’re at now – no issues with any leases or anything.
It still doesn’t feel real, but I’m sure as it approaches it will. I mean, we’ll be packing and whatnot. When we first got married, we were moving like every six months, but we’ve been where we’re at now for roughly two and a half years, and so we’ve had a little time to settle in and accumulate stuff. Our office is a giant wreck, which I’ve been working on cleaning up and cleaning out, since Lisa is out of town on business. She gets back tomorrow night, and I’m quite glad about that.
So, yeah. We’re buying a home! Very exciting.
