The Unveiling of Our New Home

After searching for over 10 months....
After 6 previous home offers...
After one mold-infested home deal that we got out of...
After all of this we finally found a home!!!
We closed on this home today at 2:30pm EST :-D

It's not perfect, but it's a starter home to make our own.
We plan to take before and after photos so you can see the work
we've put into the home. It's a starter home, and thus very dated.
...here are a few of the "before" photos:

The Specs: It's a twin home with 3 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom, with a partially finished basement in a quiet development with sidewalks and lit streets, which is walking distance to a park/playground, and two shopping centers

  2. Hello - my name is Nichole, and I was linked to your blog by a comment you left on someone elses. It was regarding a "blog button". I have been trying to make one- and seem to be having the same problem you were, with the picture not showing. Did you ever figure it out?

    you can reach me by email, nicholejarvis.hotmail.com

    or my blog-



  3. Congratulations!!!! How exciting -- I remember signing for my first home, I left in tears I was so happy (I know kinda corney). Have fun with the renovations and don't get too stressed. :-)

  4. congrats on your new home! I think that it looks good already and with a bit of elbow grease, it will be a star in no time!

  5. It's beautiful! Congratulations. I'm so happy for both of you.
