House Hunt

Well, it's official. We made an offer on a house over the weekend and it was accepted. We are so excited. We absolutely love the house and think it will be a perfect fit for our family. We have been looking at houses since last November, and seriously looking this whole month. We've looked at around 75 homes, and are thrilled to have finally made a decision. We actually were pretty interested in another home just last week, but neither of us felt completely settled about it.

The home that we are buying now was only on the market one day before we saw it, and we moved quickly! We just happened to find it at the right time, and we knew it was the right home the minute we stepped inside. We thought we would check out the ward before making an offer, but on Saturday morning Troy and I woke up feeling so good about it that we didn't want to wait. Our realtor didn't think it would last through the week and he was probably right. It is in great condition and far exceeds our list of requirements. We are going to be closing in 30 days which means this will be a very busy month. We consider this home to be an incredible blessing for us and it will be so nice for Troy to not have to commute anymore. We are excited, a little nervous, and completely grateful to soon become homeowners.

One of my favorite features is the master bed and bath. Among my other favorite features are the pantry (I just kept opening and closing it because I was so excited), vaulted ceilings, and an unfinished basement for lots of storage space.

  3. Congratulations Nashy, it looks awesome!

    BTW, I hope Troy doesn't mind that after all these years I STILL call you Nashy :) Tannery just doesn't have the same ring to it...old habits die hard.
