I think I bought a house


I didn’t want to mention this until I was mostly through the process, but I’m under contract on my very first house! The inspection turned up no major issues, the appraisal is done, the loan is approved, and the closing date and time are set, so I think I may even get it!

Mine is the green one on the left.

Built in 1925, it is a two bedroom bungalow. The place is in fairly good shape, has a new roof, insulation, furnace and water heater. I’m not in love with the finishes the seller used, but that’s the fun part! She’s done all the hard work for me.

The second bedroom is so going to be my craft room. It has great light. I’ll see if I can fit a day bed in there too, so when my friends visit they don’t have to sleep on the couch! Eee!

This picture was taken in 1948. It's on file with the local historical society.

I’ve got a week and a half until closing, and I haven’t even started packing. Turns out I’m more attached to my rundown apartment than I thought I was. Actually, that shouldn’t be a surprise. I hate change so much I tried to refuse the new computer my work is trying to foist on me. 🙂

About cliffhousealpacas

Once upon a time, my dad drove by some funny looking animals standing on little dirt hills in a field. Thus, the dream of an alpaca ranch was born. Now, we are embarking on a grand adventure of raising alpacas and becoming fiber artists.
