we bought the farm

DSCF0428

After eight months, the farm is finally ours. We put in our first offer in July of last year, it was a short-sale, and we waited and waited. No response from the bank because of issues with the agent representing the sellers. In December it was foreclosed on and went to auction, no bidders, then it sat, for two months. We gave up and started looking at other properties, then it popped back on the market the end of February.

We closed April 2nd.

Now that the hard part is done, all we have to do is remodel the kitchen, replace all the windows and exterior doors, replace/fix most of the interior doors, put down flooring throughout the house, repair and paint walls . . .

OMG, what have we done!

  1. Looks like you have a lot of remodeling to do. From the looks of the pics on flicker, the last time anything was changed was in the late 60’s or early 70’s. Oh I remember those days. At least my oven was stainless and not avocado. I grew up spending summers on the family farm and remember the joy of having a creek to play in. Pace yourself and enjoy the process of making the place truly yours.
