House News

We have officially SOLD our house (home inspection and appraisal went well and are finalized), and we close on October 29th or thereabouts.

After a lot of looking, we've found a new house!!!
What? You can't see it behind us?! That's because we are going to build a new one right there! We looked long and hard in other areas of the county that we really wanted to live in (especially Fieldstone Farms), but this seems like it fell out of the sky into our laps. We are going to build a new home. Just in case there are any creepy people reading this, we won't post here where in town we are moving, but you can email me and I'll tell you.

We signed the paperwork last night and are waiting on the builder's approval, but that should be a slam-dunk. We are going to have to move into an apartment for 4 months, but it will totally be worth it for a brand new home. The specs: 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, 2 story, 2-car garage. It is so wonderful, I am still in shock!!! The woods on the side of the property will stay for now, but there is a possibility that the developer will buy that farmland and develop... so we will enjoy the trees while they are there.

As long as everything goes ahead as scheduled, we'll move in to our new home at the beginning of February!

Yay!!!! How great to have a new home that you get to be the first to live in. I just got back from cleaning our "new" house that has definitely been lived in, but we are so thankful for it. I can't wait to hear more about it. Congratulations!
