I think I confused a bunch of ya’ll with the title of my last “house” post. It read…
Well, things changed quickly right after I wrote that post.
Now I need to say,
“She Bought Our House, He Bought Her House, We DIDN’T Buy Their House. Got it”?”
Yep. We had to get out of the contract we had made on the home because of some foundation/flooring issues that my husband wasn’t comfortable with.
So here is where we now stand….
We have a lady from Louisiana buying our home. The contract was pending the sale of her home.
Well, the first person who looked at her home bought it. So they are now getting ready to close on her home.
Our house has been appraised and inspected, and if all goes well, we will close on our home around May 27th.
So were does that leave our family?….
Well, the same day we got out of the first contract of the home we were going to buy, we found a home on 5 acres that we fell in love with.
(the front yard and driveway)
I am hesitant to show you pictures because things can still change. But if everything works out, this will be our new home.
I need ya’ll to see the potential here with me….create a new front porch with columns….paint the brick?…..add a second story or an addition to the side….
The house is only 1500 square feet!!! You heard me right!
That’s smaller than the home we live in now.
It has four bedrooms (teeny tiny bedrooms), a kitchen, a den, and a laundry room.
That’s about it.
But it has a ton of potential because the land is gorgeous. It’s also in a great location!
Here is the back of the house. It has a brick patio. The back of the house will look completely different someday, if it becomes ours.
It has a barn (that my husband loves)….
And a shed….
But the part of the property that made my heart skip a beat was this….
Except we will call it our guest house, of course. :)
It has a beautiful little deck area….
We hope to cover it in hardy board siding and give it a different color, but oh, how much fun!
Here’s another view of the back of the house…
If everything goes well, we will close on this property on May 30th, I think.
Can you see the potential?
The DIY projects abound in this home, so I will not be lacking for blog posts for about 10 years! :)
I’ll let you know if anything changes….
