new house photos

Every time that we drag our realtor over to unlock our new house for us ...again, we get so excited that we forget to take photos. Scott said he thinks we have taken our worst house photos ever of the place.

But we finally got some pretty good ones. These are sort of reference photos for us as we think of the work ahead. As you will see in the photos, there is a lot of stuff left on the property. Lots of cans and jars of mysterious toxic fluids, lots of wood and tools and just junk. But we are fine with it. A few days of clean up, several trips to the dump. We expect we will find some really neat things too.

Here's a link to Scott's photos.

we're buying a house!

I still can't believe it's actually happening, but we are buying a house. They accepted our offer on Sunday night, and now things are moving forward! It's a little bungalow with three bedrooms and a huge beautiful yard with lots of fruit trees and room to garden and play and it also has a greenhouse!

It needs a lot of work, but I think it's going to be great for us.

Since I will now be in full on house obsession mode, I am starting a new blog about houses. More details soon.
