New House!

It's official, we have a new house!  Well... not so new, but you get my drift.  There's a lot to do before we can move in, this will be the first time we work with contractors.  We've mostly done improvements and repairs ourselves, but this project is well above our heads.

Scary Bathroom
Oh yes... There's LOTS to do! You can count on me for a blow by blow of the remodel.

Back yard
We also have a huge backyard! This will be the site of my future studio :) We had put a bid in on this other home, but the bank pulled the listing after we made our offer.  They decided to auction the home instead.  It was a scummy deal and we felt uneasy doing business with them.  It has been HELL dealing with the banks & escrow company.  It seems like there are no rules to the game and the banks make it up as they go. They do whatever they want and there are no other way around it. You have to just jump through their hoops and suck it up. Hopefully this will be the last time we have to do this.  No more moving around for us.

Have fun with remodeling your house Diem! We just finished up here not long ago ourselves. It took a year and a half with my family's help but you can do it!

Envious of the giant back yard btw. We have a giant front yard but back yard is now home to a studio that is now rented out. :'(

Thanks Miss L ;) And his "love" will make things grow!

Thanks Betty! We're hoping to get it done in a month... yes that's pushing it. We need to move in and get our current place fixed up and sold as well.
