Central Florida, We Have a Winner!

So, we have a contract on the ranch house I told you about way back then!

Searching through the online tax records, I found this before picture:
See the date?

Here she is today:

Much cuter, don'tcha think?


We are scheduled to close on the 20th of this month, and we can't wait to get started on our renovations.

Here's a list:
  • Add a little peak over the front door to break up the roof line
  • Add a pergola/trellis over the garage door
  • Add window boxes
  • New flooring (except kitchen and bathrooms)
  • New interior doors
  • Add bathroom and closet to bonus room to make a new master suite
We're hoping we can get the flooring and doors done first, so we can get moved in. We'll likely live in the current master while the rest of the renovations are being done. The bonus room is on the other side of the house, so hopefully that plan will work out. Once the renovations are done, we'll have the original master suite ready for guests!

I was feeling a little hesitant about this BIG purchase, but as time goes by, I'm feeling more and more like we've made the right decision. We even know one of our neighbors already! One of The Daddy's co-workers lives just down the street, and I've heard his wife would love to have a walking partner! Yea!

Yes, we have found a home.

Head over to Our Suburban Cottage to see how AnNicole and a whole bunch of other folks met their houses!

EDITED TO ADD: Come and see our current renovation project HERE!
