The House

During our long wait for a home, Jerry and I watched ridiculous amounts of HGTV.  It's embarrassing really.  But as I describe this house to you, imagine the narrator of House Hunters, Property Brothers, or Love It or List It.  They are all basically the same show anyway.

A 1 1/2 story fully detached home with:

  • 4 bedrooms
  • 2 bathrooms
  • An open concept kitchen, dining, and living area
  • not-so marble countertops
  • an unfinished basement
  • a detached garage
  • and a fenced in backyard
And it's dripping in character which according to HGTV, just means it's a bit old.

There's a lot about the house that I love.  I sit on the couch and stare at this staircase and our mantle, and feel like we have the cutest house ever.  I love that it is not a cookie cutter house.  No homes on the street match it.  I love that I can see Joshua while I'm cooking, and I love the previous owners were good at decorating. 

The house has its quirks.  If you ever decide to come stay with us you will likely stay in a violent pink room.  Maybe in the spring or summer we will get to that.  I'm learning a lot about sump pumps, roofing, caulking, etc.  The joys of home ownership.

The post I've been waiting for! I was wondering if you had moved in yet. You put a stitch in my side. 'Violent Pink?' :) You are too funny Michelle! The house looks wonderful! Congratulations!

I also love to watch HGTV. Your house looks awesome! Who wants a cookie-cutter home? You want one with "character" so you can put your "stamp" on it! Enjoy and have lots of fun dreaming of ways to make it your very own.
