We bought a house!

For about the past month or so…Terry and I have been looking for a home. It started innocently enough, just stopping at some model homes and looking around at them in envy. Then we started looking at our finances and realized that we could actually probally afford one. Not one of those, but some other house. And it turns out, we could! It’s a great time to buy a house if you’re in the market; low interest rates, lots of homes to choose between, little to no competition and you’re going to pay less than the asking price.

So, here’s our house. You’ll have to pardon the crappy photos, these are the ones I took off the real estate website, and aparently they were took with a horrible camera. The home inspecter is coming out next week so we’ll get better photos then. Also I’ve got to measure for decorating purposes. I’m having an orgasm of design inspiration at the moment. I’ve never had my own house before to decorate…just apartments…so this is all so new…so wonderful!

It’s brand new. 2,000 square feet. 3 bed/2 bath. And I love it! Oh, and it will shave off about 20 minutes from my daily commute! Technically 20 minutes, each way, so a total of 40 minutes saved every day!

Here’s the front of it.


Here’s the greatroom (notice the double trey ceilings):


Looking into the kitchen, from the Greatroom:


More of the kitchen, just because I love it:


And the backyard. Not fenced in yet (for the dogs), but we’ll do it later. And that cute patio is completely covered AND has an outdoor ceiling fan & light. How cool will that be for BBQ’s? Those three windows look into the large eat-in kitchen.


I love it!
