And, if all that wasn't enough, we decided to by a new house. A fixer- upper at that!
We started house hunting in February in no big rush to leave where we are at; we really just wanted to see what was out there. We quickly realized that both Quentin and I are totally drawn to the misfit houses, the ones that need a lot of love. This particular beauty caught our eye, and it is only 10 houses from where we live now.
It has been empty for 4 years and is a HUD repo! YIKES. The copper plumbing under the house has been stolen, the air conditioning electrical wire have been ripped out, the oil furnace is toast, it has the original 1960's kitchen and bathrooms, and the list goes on.....
BUT.. it is the perfect size and layout for my family, and ITS A RANCH! The location is perfect, and I will get to put my personal touch on everything. I am so excited. We have a pretty tight budget for all the renovations, but that just makes it more fun and challenging. These are some of the before pictures. We should start demo this week.
