A Little House

So, you know that little house from two posts ago? Well, last Thursday we put an offer in on it and it was accepted. So now Adam and I are going through the process and the rigors of buying a home. Today the inspection man inspected the foundation and found it to be in satisfactory condition... But he did suggest we do a little grading to keep the water away from the house and maybe get longer downspouts.

The house is really clean. It looks like the people who owned it before redid the whole house just to sell it. Everything has been painted and it has new floors throughout. The kitchen is totally new with new appliances. Even the bathroom has been redone. The house sits on .34 acres and the backyard is fenced in, which is good if we get a puppy... Though I'm not sure what Louis would think about a puppy. I think I could put a small garden in the back and maybe plant some purple carrots. I'm looking forward to putting some pretty bushes in the front and a few flowers. I believe we will enjoy our new house once evrything goes through. It's a little small for big parties, but after we fininsh off the basement we'll have to have a large party with lots of guests :)

So... Who wants to help us move in the end of April?
