We did it. This is the house!
The preliminary papers have been signed. The closing will be in a few weeks but we can't do anything to the property until then and we're excited to get started. I'll be sharing more photos as soon as we have the keys in our hands.
I'll try to answer the questions in the last post's comments. We'll not be living in this house, but our daughter will be. She's very excited about fixing it up and can't wait to get started. We bought the property as an investment as we feel like the barn and lot alone are worth the price we paid. There are a lot of things that need fixing, but BG can do a lot himself and Kim has friends who will help out, too.
The house is small. Just 950 square feet upstairs and 900 sq ft in the basement. The basement was finished at one time, but it needs to be gutted since there is a mold problem due to a broken water pipe. We have someone lined up to clean that mess up. As far as we know, that is the biggest problem. Keeping our fingers crossed there is nothing else we don't know about.
This is the back of the double car garage and storage shed. You can see the barn over the roof of the garage. The vines and weeds will all be cleared away. The young couple who previously lived there did nothing to the yard so parts of it looks like a jungle.
I love the barn. It's approximately 45 ft by 21 ft. Very sturdy with a stairway going to a loft. Lots of possibilities there!
Our two week vacation out west/southwest will be postponed and I'm fine with that. We will be going on a short vacay to rest up a bit before the work begins. Oh, I'm so excited! I can hardly wait until closing so we can get started!
In other news...my poor uncle fell and broke his other hip last night. He fell out of his bed at the nursing home where he was recovering from his previous broken hip. He is having surgery this afternoon and his son will be at the hospital. I'll be taking my aunt tomorrow to see him. Please whisper a prayer for him and for my aunt who is not in good health and having to deal with this. Thank you!
Happy Tuesday to you!
