so in a period of about 24 hours, my wife and I went from "starting to look for a house to buy" to "holy shit we're putting in an offer" to "holy fuck it's accepted we're buying a house."
I'm kinda freaking out a little, but it's cool. Check out my (in 3 months) first house SE++:
front view: yeah, it's a house.
I'm basically gonna live in that kitchen. It's got a dining nook, that opens into a full dining room in sort of an L shape.
that dining room there.
that living room is half the size of our current apartment. and goddamn hardwood floors.
the master bedroom: our furniture will not be as fancy. I love the corner windows though, light from 2 sides.
shit yes it has a sun porch (and a ridiculously landscaped fenced back yard that isn't in any of the pictures). Is there a better place to sip beverages on a summer evening? I highly doubt it.
bigass family room with a woodstove in the basement. so excited.
Also 2 other bedrooms in the basement and whatever. holy fuck I'm excited/overwhelmed.
Marvel at what will be mine (well, the bank's) SE++, and share with me your stories of home ownership.
