The Times They Are A Changin'

Welcome to the second chapter in the Dan and Ashley story. We just bought a house!

I took this photo on my phone during a drive by creep of the place. They put the SOLD sign on!

Upon returning from our fabulous trip to Flo-rida, we picked up where we left off on the workings of trying to get the place. Post dodging a few curve balls and pulling some strings we found out yesterday that we were approved and went in to sign our lives away!

The place is just over 2200 sq/ft, built in 84' and has a double car detached garage in the back with a loft above it. The house has 4 bedrooms and 2 full baths with all new appliances. Apart from the downstairs bathroom the majority of the cupboards and floors are the originals. Aesthetically, it's a fixer upper, exactly what we wanted.

Surprise! This blog will now host a plethora of renovation and DIY posts!.. jk... or am I?

I took this photo off of Google as I wanted to see what it looked like in the Summer (in 2009). As you can see the owners dug up the two trees in the front at some point, I would have done the same. I'm not sure if this is the current roof as they said it was replaced 4 years ago, whether that was before or after Google took this shot.

Definitely planning on painting/replacing the siding and probably adding in some stone or something. I made this is PS, kinda gives you an idea the potential this place has. 

Our possession date is March 25th, giving us a little over a month to pack and prepare! Will definitely have to remember to take lots of BEFORE photos of the place before we start painting and reno-ing!

What a great way to start out 2013!
