We bought a house today!!

We went and looked at this house yesterday, put the offer in on it at 9AM this morning, and by 1PM this afternoon, we had officially bought our first house!!!!!!!!

It is a cute little ranch. 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, kitchen, living room, 1 car detached garage and a full basement. The basement has a finished family room and guest room. It also has two work room areas, a laundry area, and a storage type room that we are planning into another full bath in the spring. The yard is fenced, and it has a back patio with an awning to cover it.

I'm sooooo very excited about it. This is the 3rd house we bid on, it took until the 3rd counter offer for them to accept, we have 3 kids and have been looking heavily for a house for 3 months....I think we like the number 3...hahaha.

Pics below are off of the MLS listing so they may not be super. I hope to be able to go and take more pictures soon!!!!!!

The front of the house---

The kitchen---all the appliances stay!!!!!! woohoo

The living room---all new carpet---

The family room--not digging the paneling, but paint can do wonders correct?


  1. Congratulations! I'm so happy for you guys!! Is this one in Carlisle too? We've been looking for a while but not too hard since we have some work to do to ours. We need a yard...well, a couple acres really. The boys (including my fiance) need their space.

  2. My comments from just looking at pictures...

    Cute house! Looks well taken care of.

    I'm jealous, I want a dishwasher. Like the tile in the kitchen too.

    Yes, painting over the paneling is easy enough. What I noticed is all the OUTLETS! Once again... jealous. :)

    Yay!! Congrats!! :)
