We're buying a house! Some of you know, most of you don't. But we're buying a house! Because of the fiasco that ended our last attempt to purchase a home, we haven't been publicizing this much. But everything is set and we will close on the 13th, given that works for everyone.
The house is just perfect for us. It's a ranch in a neighborhood that seems very family friendly (there is an elementary school near by), and the house is on a cul-de-sac. It has 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths and a fenced in backyard. The kitchen, carpet and roof are all new with brand new appliances that still have the manuals in them. :) It also has a very dated (aka UGLY) hall bath that will HAVE to be changed. But we're talking a major renovation here. No amount of painting is going to make the wood paneled back-splash and gazebo facade on the tub look good. But we'll get there eventually.
There is one part about this house that wasn't what we had originally intended...it's in Reynoldsburg, which is about 20-30 minutes east of where we were looking before. But we feel really good about the change. And we are just so excited to have a home of our own! We'll be in just in time for the holidays, and a very special double birthday party. ;) YAY!!
