Moved In and Unpacked

Last weekend’s house warming provided motivation for us to get everything all unpacked. Here are some photos of the house now that we aren’t living out of boxes anymore. Not too bad for having moved in only three weeks ago, huh?

We’ve Finally Moved In!

After an almost 2 week absence from blogging, we’re happy to report that we’ve successfully made the move to our new home! It turned out to be a full two days of work and we’re still living out of boxes. I’ll post more details later, but here are some photos of moving day :

A Happy Day for Appraisals

Today we got back the results of the appraisals on both our current home and the home we’re moving to. Our new house was appraised for exactly the same value we agreed to purchase it for. Normally, this wouldn’t be anything we’d be particularly surprised or excited about, but given the issues we’ve had with…

Visiting the New House

We got to spend a couple of hours at our future home this morning doing a walk-through with the current owners.

We spent about three hours with the inspector going around the entire property, starting with the tool shop and garage. These two structures were probably in the worst shape of anything on the property. It looked like the…

Photos of the New Home

We took a bunch of photos of the house the second time we walked through it. Only after getting home did we realize that every photo we’d taken was of the interior of the home and we had no exterior photos. So, here’s our photo gallery. The interior photos were taken a few weeks ago….

They accepted our offer!

After house hunting for about six months, we first saw this house about a month ago. A week after walking through it for the first time, we brought our parents back to get their opinions. And last week, we finally decided to make an offer. Based on the seller’s initial feedback, it seemed like we…
