Well, we had the closing, it's ours. Now to pay for it, lol....wanna see? I'm not sharing all the pics, you can thank me later.
2200 sq ft., so twice the size of the one we're in now.
In front, on the left is the living room, on the right is the kitchen and dining area. Upstairs are four good-sized bedrooms, one with a balcony. There are 2 1/2 baths. No carpet anywhere, thank goodness.
On closing day, we inspected the house right before close. We walked to the back, out by the outbuilding, and I saw what appeared to be a deer statue between the fruit trees - I thought "what dummy would put a deer statue there", and then it moved! She was waiting to greet us to our new home. Totally unafraid of us. The guy who lived there told me they also have red foxes that frequent the place.
From the driveway. Our lot goes back about 30 - 40ft beyond the furthest vegetation you can see. The outbuilding is almost 1,000 sq ft, and hubby couldn't be happier! [Plus, it has a furnace!]
Other side of the house. The doorwall goes to my sewing room, the balcony to the largest bedroom.
The kitchen. I LOVE the kitchen. Two wall ovens - built-in glass-top stove - dishwasher - and a pass-through to the hallway, for some reason, but it makes it feel much more open, and there's a ton of counter space over there. The layout is perfect for me.
This is the hallway from just to the left of the kitchen, leading into the SEWING ROOM. Past the closet are the stairs leading to the bedrooms on the left, down the steps is a door leading to the garage, laundry area, and full bath. To the right is an odd area -
This is in the sewing room. I honestly thought there was a wall where those shelves are - the guy had two very large fish tanks there. We may wall that off and make that room a pantry, or else it will become part of the sewing room. I'd really like a pantry.
Windows in the sewing room.
We walked as far as we could to the back of the lot, in the distance you can see the house and my car in the driveway. Hard to believe that right down the street, within walking distance, is a Tim Horton's, Wendy's, Kroger, Dollar Tree, you name it - it really feels like you're in the country. And somewhere on the property is a well, we have to find it so we can water our future garden. Oh, and down the street is a house that sells fresh eggs!
We have the utilities turned on, except the water - they're coming out Monday to do the final read, the guy didn't get that done. I can't start cleaning without water!!! And I refuse to move stuff into a dirty house. Sunday the internet guy is coming out, yay for that.
Needless to say, no sewing of any kind is going on, and not much internetting. In the midst of all this, my mother really needs your prayers desperately - she got a letter today from the city, it looks like she's lost her house, we're going to try to save it but not sure if we can. So while she's going through all the medical testing for liver failure, and heart failure, we may have to move her too.
So if you would keep us in your thoughts and prayers, we'd really appreciate it.
