The Journey Begins

Six days ago, we discovered the house that will become our first home.

We’d been browsing MLS casually for a couple of months.  We kept finding places saying “$180,000, As-Is” and “$170,000, needs work.”  This was blatant – they weren’t even trying to hide the fact that you were going to get a real mess on your hands for a lot of your hard-earned money.  It was depressing.

However, when we stumbled upon this house, we thought… maybe?

"As Advertised!"

The house was listed at a suitable price; you’ll come to understand why…  Take a look at the existing floorplan (You can see it in 3D at by clicking on the diagram and selecting “3D” in the top right corner of the page.):

You can probably imagine how hopeless that layout is, based on the diagram, but wait until you see the pictures:

In our next post, we’ll talk about some of the ideas we have for this place!
