Have I ever confessed that we bought our current home without ever seeing it? I don’t buy jeans without trying them on, yet in 2012 we had just moved to town (I’m talking U-haul in front of our would-be house) and our rental fell through! We moved in with my parents for a couple months. The market here was warming up and after NINETEEN offers on different homes our realtor called and said, “I think I might have something” I replied, “go over asking price and buy it.” I was sooooo pregnancy pukey and sooooo ready to have a home we made the offer sight unseen. The home was a short sale and I guess I didn’t think it would actually go through, so when we received a call that it was working out we hopped into the car to take a look. What we saw was a little less than inspiring:
But when I saw the pool I didn’t care what the home looked like. I care now though, and it is about to change. This week is going to be epic. IT’S CURB APPEAL WEEK! Last year I refinished the front door, and the house has begging for more ever since. Here is the plan:
- Paint the garage doors
- Build new shutters
- Repaint exterior lights
Stay tuned, it’s going to be fun!
