Bought a House!

Turns out we bought a house.  How crazy is that?!  We’ve been looking online for months (years), just looking… and when I found out I’d be moving to Browns Point, we started looking seriously in that area.  We went down a couple of times to just look around on our own or attend open houses, and went twice with a realtor to tour the ones we were most interested in.  We found two that we really liked, put a low offer on one not expecting to get it, and voila!  Inspection was Saturday and went super-well.  Closing is at the end of May.  Hooray!  We are so excited to have a ton of space (but will need to buy a lot more furniture!) and a yard and a bit of quiet after living downtown for the last three years.  Here are some photos:

Front Yard

Little patch of blue sky!

Kitchen

The last owners did a beautiful kitchen remodel and obviously put in super-nice stainless appliances, but took them all with them when they left, which is why now there’s a Viking hood and a bunch of off-white kitchenaid appliances.  Oh, well.

Peek-a-boo view of the sound from the master bedroom!

Back yard (needs a fence)

We were there for a couple of hours for the inspection, and that was plenty of time for Caroline to become a stair-climbing expert.  Thanks to the help of her Granddaddy, she caught right on and can now climb almost to the top.  Here she is half-way, looking far too old in her Cheerios t-shirt.

We’re so excited!  Come visit us (after we move in June)!
