Home Sweet Home...Soon Anyways

So, I hear that someone has been reading my blog. Now she knows our little secret and she told her mother. :) Hehe. We haven't told everyone, but Ronnie has told me that it is okay to publish info on my blog. So I guess if you read it then you'll know what's going on.

We are getting a house...finally!!!! We received the information in the mail yesterday. We are very excited. We are fortunate in that our interest rate is going to be LOW! Lower than we thought we could get, but we'll take it. Our payments won't be that bad and we'll be in our own place...with much more space than we presently have. We're not only excited about the house, but about where we're going to be. We've been paying on this land for a year and a half and now we finally get to live there, we get to mow the grass, we get to put up fences and have some animals, we get to have little gardens! That won't happen all at once, but they are goals that we've had in mind for years.

So, what is this house like, you ask. I'll tell you. It's going to have 3 bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen and dining room, and two bathrooms on the bottom floor. Right now the upstairs will be unfinished so we'll have plenty of storage. We'll finish it when we have more children...it'll be a few years anyway. I have included the floorplan and a picture of what it will look like one day below.

Since this home is going to be constructed we won't be moving this month or next, but we'll have to wait a while. We have to get our permits, dig a well and put in a septic tank. The home will have to be built, delivered and put together. Then we'll wait on the inside work to be done. We have a lot to do! Right now the tentative close date on our loan is July 20. Needless to say, we'll be counting down the days as we go through the steps.

Post a comment to let me know you've stopped by...thanks for reading!
