It is ours!

Everything went just fine with the walk through and closing and our stuff arrived yesterday. Now we are surrounded by boxes, boxes and more boxes.
Yesterday we realized that the carpet downstairs (the lower level half basement) smells bad (the previous owners had cats), so we ripped it out (even the movers commented on it smelling bad). It smells approximately a million times better, still need to put a coat of primer on it to seal it and then lay a new floor on top.

It feels like there are about a million billion things to do, and im still exhausted from the 60 hours i worked during the last short week (as in 60 hours from m-thur). But the house is perfect and we still love it. the chairs look awesome in the living room, the bed the seller left for us is perfect, we met two of the neighbors who were so so friendly (our next door neighbor is a nice old german woman), and we OWN A HOUSE!!


  1. CONGRATS! I'm happy to hear that everything is working out and I can't wait to see photos!! I hope you have a break from work soon so you can focus on settling into your new place.

  2. Congrats! Isn't it crazy how much you paid to do that much work :). Totally satisfying though!!

  3. HOORAY!! Glad you are in. You must be loving it.
