One year ago yesterday it became official. We bought a house.
Look at what I said then… “Let’s just hope that a year from now, we’ll be ready to move in. Our current goal to be moved in by is Christmas 2014…but a girl can wish for an earlier date..RIGHT??”
Here’s what it looked like back then.
It’s good for me to see that as we have made some progress…SLOW but some.
We bought the lot next door. We moved the garage.
The front porch is off and started new. The back 1/3 of the house is off. We’re waiting (no so patiently) for cement. The electric in the old part is all updated.
Back then I said, “By the way, the house next door is available. Anyone want to come be my neighbor?? Actually there are several houses for sale in Waucoma. You can see them listed with our realtor here.” That house is still available.
Now that a dose of reality has hit me…I know we likely won’t make the Christmas 2014 date to be in the house but honestly…I’m not spending all winter at this one even if I have to cook on a hot plate…oh I hope that statement doesn’t bit me in butt later on.
I’m still glad we bought the house and still anticipate the day when it looks a little more like this…
Keep your fingers crossed that the cement guy can come in the next week or so…..and hopefully a year from now I’ll be able to show you that it indeed looks much more like this.
