New House

Sunday, July 27, 2008

Now that we have a signed offer on our house in St Louis, James and I finally feel ready to buy a house. On Friday, we made an offer on a house in Makanda, just about 5 miles south of the SIUC campus.

Here are some realtor images of the place:

Back Yard



Kitchen

Great Room


Basement family room.

If all goes according to plan, we'll close on this house on September 3rd (the twins' birthday). There are a bunch of things we'll need/want to fix in the house, but we're excited to have found a good house and to get started on our next adventure.

Caprice and Darcy have already started asking about their birthday; we told them they get new bedrooms and personal toilets for their presents this year (this house has 3 1/2 baths where our current home has just 1 tiny one).

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!! I am so, so happy for you. I can't believe it took me days to see that you had an offer on your house. I am such a slacker. The house is IL looks fabulous, definitely has room for us to come and visit.

Wow, that house looks absolutely gorgeous! Your family told me a little about it at dinner yesterday. 2 acres?!? That is amazing! If only it were in Utah...

That house looks awesome! Too bad you sold your house already for us, because we'll be in the market to buy come this november. I thought I asked you to save your cute cottage for me and James..( : I got here off of Lori's blog....I love blog surfing!
