Happy Wednesday! If you haven’t read the About Me section you might want to head over there first to get a jest of who we are and what in the world we are doing!
Almost a year ago, right when the trees began to bud and fresh grass began to grow, Vitalik and I drove into this dead-end street and noticed some wooded acreage. My heart began to skip a beat because quite frankly it was our dream street. It was quiet, surrounded by beautiful homes, walking distance to stores and it was in our desired school district for our sweet babes. After probing some neighbors, we were told the owners had no desire to sell. Vitalik and I decided to pray about it and wait on the Lord. Almost a year later, my young realtor friend calls me and tells me the owners are willing to sell it to us or a neighbor. After some negotiating and a lot of praying, we got the house! It’s a huge project and needs to be gutted but that’s the kind of stuff Vitalik and I love. (Although our kids might feel differently.) Throughout the next few weeks, I’ll be posting our progress as well as inspiration photos for each room. There are 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms so we definitely have our work cut out for us!
To the right of the house are 6 more lots where we hope to build our “forever” home and a few more homes for resell. But more on that in another post. Here are a few photos to make you cringe or excited, depending on what kind of stuff makes you happy.
