we've placed our offer, haggled and settled on a very good price. we're writing checks to secure the option and given "good faith money" (or something like that) which shows that we're really going to buy the house. we've papers in from our mortgage guy, but we don't undestand a word of it so i don't know where we are with that, exactly, but there shouldn't be any problems there. we're setting up appraisers and inspectors.
the couple have already bought another house and wanted to close on this house early september. perfect! our landlords here are going to allow us to stay through september so we won't be homeless.
now, on to the good part. i love this house. it's the only house on the block not shaded by some old majestic tree in the front yard, so i get to plant my first tree.
this is the living room that you walk into from the front door.
not an excellent picture of the kitchen, but it's decent sized and set up for function and cleanliness. the sink is way cool with a built in water purifier. that little drawer in front of the sink is a fake, sort of. it tilts out and has a space to hold all those ugly sponges and soaps. *sigh* sometimes it's the little things.
the master bedroom is painted my favorite color. we'll have to paint the two other bedrooms that are currently pink and blue to suit the children that lived in them. i wonder if they'll notice that penn attacked their toys while they were gone.
i'm so excited. and i swear if telling the blogging world takes my house away someone's going to hear it.
