If you follow me on Facebook or follow along with my other blog (The Cozy Old Farmhouse) then you might already know about this exciting news. But for those of you who don't have Facebook and such I figured I'd share the news over here as well.
We're buying a house!!!
It's a 3/2 doublewide that's sitting on almost 5 acres, and Lord willing we close on it within a week. It was a foreclosure so that's how we were able to get it with our limited budget. : ) It's been sitting empty for almost a year so it's pretty overgrown. I can't wait to get it mowed down and looking purdified.
The outside is fairly plain (for now), but the inside is really nice and has lots of room and space to spread out. :)
Above is a partial view of the front yard (half mowed, half not).
And this is a partial view of the backyard. So much space, I love it!!
I won't bore you with a bunch of interior pictures, but I do have to share my favorite room of the house...
The kitchen! It's SO big, well at least compared to anything I've ever had, and it's such a great functional layout. I can't wait to get in there and start cookin'!
On the other end of the room is what will become the dining room. Technically, it's supposed to be a family room, but I've never seen the point of having a separate living room and family room, and I've always wanted a big dining room right next to the kitchen so that's what it will become.
One of our first projects will be to rip out the carpet and lay laminate wood flooring through the kitchen and dining areas. Part of the existing laminate in the kitchen has been ruined by a leak in the fridge, so since it'll need replaced anyways we plan to just take it all out and lay the same flooring throughout the two rooms.
We have lots of other projects in mind for the future, but 3 main ones that we hope to accomplish before we move in, Lord willing by Christmas.
