One step closer

Filed under: Uncategorized — admin @ 12:21 pm

We had an inspection done today on the house we’re hoping to buy and it passed with *almost* flying colors. The roof only has about 5 years left but it’s in good shape, some of the outlets aren’t grounded properly, and there’s a small problem with one of the downspouts – but other than that the foundation is solid, there’s no moisture problems, and everything else looks good. Not bad for a house that’s 18 years old. Now all that’s left is locking in the financing and we’re good to go.

It’s a pretty nice place – 2350 sq ft, about 1/5th acre, finished basement, 2 car attached garage, vaulted ceilings in the living room and a fireplace, gas heat and water heater, on a cul-de-sac, 4 bedrooms and 2 bonus rooms, and 2 1/2 baths. The neighborhood looks pretty nice too, but we’ll have to see how the neighbors are. We’ve already got all the rooms designated too. There’s going to be our room, Hayden’s room, the guest bedroom upstairs, then the playroom, media room, Nickey’s crafts room, and my office/music room downstairs. There’s also a concrete slab in the front yard for rv/boat parking that we are going to break up and plant grass, put up a little picket fence, put a fence around the parts of the backyard that don’t have one, then get a dog.

I think my first purchase is going to be a BBQ… If anyone is looking for housewarming/wedding gifts then a Home Depot gift card would be perfect! Or donations to the Home Matters PayPal account works too 😉
