Progress: Offer Accepted

This birdie will be homeless

If these guys haven't already found a new place to live, they're going to have to soon. (They were living inside the back porch the first time we checked out the house.)

So. Our offer was accepted. We have next week to get the house inspected and have the lawyer review the paperwork again, and turn over the payment the following week. Yikes! The bank countered our first offer, and we countered in turn. They accepted that offer. Funny thing? It was the amount we'd originally planned on starting with before they started jacking around.

The place needs a lot of work, so we won't be moving right away, but will probably be in by late October.
  1. Please let me know if you'll need a change of address from us. I think I have most addresses I need, but I'm not sure how accurate it is.

  2. Want to help paint? We won't say no.

House & Garage

Side Yard

Back Porch
One this is closed in, it will probably be my favorite place in the world.

Side Door
Basement entrance. This has already been all cleared out. We will, of course, replace the door for a sturdier one. One concern (that the inspector can answer for us) is the drain there at the bottom of the stairs.

House! That looks really lovely, although I don't envy you your lawn mowing duties! ;) Congratulations, and I hope the inspection goes swimmingly!

Yay congrats! It looks really nice with lots of room. Those birdies are so cute- don't evict them too early!
