Who are those happy people? And where are they?
Oh that's just T and me. Standing in our very own lot where we will begin construction on our new home in just a few months! We're building a home!
I'd like to say this is a small treasure, but it's not. It's a huge one. A gigantic one of immense proportions. I know that I have shared my troubles with our current rental, including ant problems, mice problems, squirrel infestations, you name it...well, last week's pest infestation was kind of the last straw for us. Our lease was officially up as of Wednesday last week, so we're taking the plunge into home ownership. Yay!
We've put the earnest money down and have signed the purchase agreement, and we are a go to get financing and become official home owners. The exciting part is we will get to work with a design center through our builder, Beazer Homes, to customize our house just as we like it. We're building a four bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, two story home with a full basement. It's incredible. If everything goes as planned we will be closing on the home in late April or early May, just in time for my big 30th birthday.
Maybe the mouse was a sign from God that it was time for us to make this move. Who knows? All I know is that T and I have a bunch to be thankful for this year. We're extremely blessed. Sometimes I have a hard time looking at our life and thinking "is this my life? Is this all really happening?"
I'm sure I'll keep you posted with pictures as the house building process begins, but for now, we just have an empty lot with an "under contract" sign. So exciting!
