your new home:)

as much fun as having 2 mortgages has been....we're pretty much over it;)

SO our contract is up with our Realtor in about a month, which means our home has been on the market for about 9 months. Eeeekkkkk! We've gone from "we're putting our house up for saleeeeeeeee! what's to come?!?!? sooooo exciting!!!!" to "it's never going to sell. this is our stressed-out life now. the end." 

welllllll, maybe not quiteeeeee so bad some days. maybe a weeeeee bit worse some days;)

point is...she's still for sale and she wants your love. Buy it. Live in it. Now:)


sorry for the super sad winter photos...but they'll have to do!:) 

the house has a great location! It's within walking distance to the schools - only about 2 blocks, churches - only about 4 blocks, and (for you locals) near Hwy13 - 1 block and Hwy29 - only about a mile or so.

the roof was redone about 3 years ago! A few new windows have been added. And a door was installed out of the kitchen that leads to a new and adorable little deck and patio that were added last summer:)

it also has air conditioning...OLD...but it is there and in working order:)



when you first enter the house you'll have the option of going up into the kitchen OR down into the basement. 

below is a peek at the remodeled area in the basement. Great for storage. Or a play room for kids. OR even a gaming room for 'dad' or the kids as they get older:)

*we actually used that area for a renter! Something to consider if you're single and questioning whether you could afford a whole house on your own.*



now onto the kitchen, which in my opinion is the best part about the entire house:) All woodwork was updated/done by R&L Woodworking:)

*all appliances will be included (fridge, stove/oven, washer/dryer)*










from the open concept kitchen/living room, you're able to step into a 4-seasons room at the front of the house. Here you will find more storage/closets.




off the living room are the 2 bedrooms. Master bedroom above, which has a ton of closet space and more than enough room for a king-sized bed (pictured) as well as a few other pieces of furniture, if you choose.

and then there's the spare bedroom, which we used as our baby room. This would also make a great office:)




between the Bedrooms is the Full Bathroom. Again, this was fully remodeled by R&L Custom Woodworking:)

i swear that mirror makes the entire room work and it only set me back $1 at a flea market! Just cleaned it up and spray painted it black!!!:)

*the bedrooms and living room are original hardwood floors. The bathroom has marble tile and the kitchen has laminate tile.*


now...you may be asking yourself "howwwww is this adorable, amazingly affordable gemmmmm still on the market????".

i ask myself that daily. It includes many more fbombs, though;)

* i honestly think size does matter....in this case;) It's only 2 bedrooms on the main (and really, only level)
BUT it has ample room downstairs with that finished off back room.

* there's also only one FULL bathroom. 
BUT there is an area in the basement that a bathroom could be added (we've gotten quotes and it's a bit out of our price range at the moment - our price range being $0:)
BUT it's good to have the option for you ambitious ones

this house is in need of a young couple looking for a starter home! Maybe even thinking about starting a family here! It was great for my husband and I and our little boy! Had we not found our dream home in the midst of all this...we would have been completely comfortable having 2 kiddos in that house at some point!:)

this house would be amazing for a retiring couple, looking for a place that will be easy to take care of. Small enough to clean in an hour and local enough to take long walks but still jump in the car and get on the highway within a minute to go for a Sunday drive (something Jacob and I already do;).

i can't wait for this home to make someone else as happy as it's made Jacob and I!:)
