I can’t believe that I am once again a homeowner.
Once we decided to start looking, things happened very fast. And one of the reasons we landed on this little house was that it was “move-in ready.” Well. We can’t do anything without putting our own stamp on it; and now we’ve found ourselves knee deep into a remodel. We’ve got about another 3-4 weeks of construction because the hubs is of course doing all the work himself, after hours and on the weekends. He’s pretty much Superman.
I can’t say that I was excited for this next little adventure, but I’m coming around. I really just felt like we didn’t have many good options (she says snarky-like from her cushy, middle-class life). And clearly I have some baggage from the last housing crisis. I was (and still am) nervous about owning again…especially since Houston is on quite the housing high. And I’m VERY SAD about leaving our current abode. We LOVE living in this little flat so much: the neighborhood, our amazing landlords, the actual space.
But life must move forward. And the next chapter is here. And with each wall that comes down(!), I get more and more excited about this becoming our home.
Here’s a little photo tour:
