Surprise!

We bought a house! A "new to us" house!
I haven't said anything because I wanted to be sure
that it actually went through. ( There was one that
we made an offer on first that didn't go through)
Anyway, we are so excited! We love the house
that we live in now, and we REALLY LOVE our
neighbors, but we have just outgrown it.
It is only about a 1000 sq. ft. and it is
getting impossible to fit everything in around
here. I know we should probably just
get rid of some stuff but that is hard sometimes.
So, it is kind of funny actually, but we found
this other house in our SAME SUBDIVISION!
Just around the corner, so to speak.
It is a foreclosure, and it needs alot of
work, but it has great potential.










We love this house because it sits way back off the
road, and even though it is in a subdivision, it has
the FEEL of privacy.

This is the current living room, but we are building on
a new living room, so this will the dining room.
It has a beautiful hardwood floor.

The new room will have an opening where the
windows are now.



The "icky" kitchen. We are having new cabinets built and
taking out the door that goes out the side. We are
putting a back door in instead.
It has some type of laminate in the kitchen, but
not very nice so we are replacing it with tile.

Here there is a hook-up for the washer and dryer, but
we are going to use one of the smaller bedrooms to
make a new laundry room. So this will be my
pantry. Don't you just love it?


I love the lights in this bathroom. Kind of unique, I
think they have character!


This will Emily's playroom.



This will be her bedroom.

This is still Emily's room. She loves the rainbow, but the
rainbow is leaving.


This is the room I am making the laundry room.


Huge walk-in closet in masterbath.

We are so excited about our new house. It needs lots
of work, but we will get it done. Please help us
pray now that we can sell our current house.
I'll be posting lots of pictures as we make
progress.

How exciting! Both of our previous houses were fixer uppers. We enjoyed making those houses ours with the things that we wanted.

Congrats on the new house! I like fixer-uppers best, you can fix them the way you want them :) I'm sure you all will make it a lovely place!

Congratulations! How awesome for you. You will have tons more space. 1000 sq. ft. isn't very big. We lived in one that was 950 when in OK for 4 months so I know how ya feel. There is only so much you can downsize and a body does want to keep things for grandchildren someday! right?!!
