House!

Steve and I have signed a contract on a house! We made an offer last night, the seller countered, and we accepted--so, if the Lord wills, we will close June 30 and spend the month of July moving into our new house!! It's a great old house (built in 1938) that's completely livable now, yet has plenty of projects to keep us busy. We are so excited about becoming homeowners!

Working on importing a snazzy Flickr slideshow here--but if you're so inclined, you can see the pics now by clicking here.

The House looks great Amy, congratulations. Really a great find. Thanks for the clue in to Bob's site, but I got there a bit late, and unfortuatly I can't really answer the Glad questions.

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! I'm so excited for you! Isn't it an exciting, overwhelming, unbelievable feeling to realize that you're going to be in your VERY OWN place?!

I'm in the midst of it all too and it's just so wonderful. And, what a beautiful, beautiful place. So much character. I love the arches!!!

Congratulation! I'm glad you have found a place so quickly and the wood floors are such a bonus! So happy you have decided to make this area more permanent. Now Steve will have some yard projects to keep him happy.

Congrats Amy & Steve! Your house is so cute! I love hardwood floors. What town is it located in? Will it be a shorter commute for Steve to work now? How long have you been looking? That's great. I hope everything falls in place with the closing.
Best wishes,
Sandra

Congratulations! It is so much better to own than rent. You are going to love it :)
The house is just wonderful. I am sure you are really going to use those bookshelves. I look forward to pictures once you set it up.

What a charming house! So cute in every way! My husband and I bought a 1950's house last Oct. and it needs A LOT of work. But it's so fun to work on a place of your own!
