A few pictures!

Here are a few pictures of the new house! Hopefully these will soon be the "before" pictures and I can post "after" ones if all goes well over the next few weeks!!

The house needs some major fixing up and we have already begun a little. We installed two ceiling lights last night which took about 10 times longer than I thought it would! I had no idea of all the electrical work that went along with doing a single ceiling light.

We also have windows ordered and the roofer is set to come out next week as long as the weather cooperates. I also met with the plumber today and got a quote which hopefully will be completed next week. Now I just have to decide whether to tackle painting the outside of the house by myself over the next couple sunny days or take a risk and wait for my parents to help out when they get here next week even though the forecast says rain the entire time.

It's very exciting and I'm trying not to feel overwhelmed at all there is to do and know that we can space it out over years! I know the house will be so home-y and comfy some day and I'm excited to experience it! Now off to Home Depot to get a new mailbox! :)


  1. LOVE IT! Can't believe these are the 'before' pics - it already looks awesome! Have fun with all the home shopping :)

I am so incredibly happy for the two of you.. the house is super oober cute, and yes! take your time with the new changes.. it can either be a stressful time in your lives or it can be extremely joyful! You're already doing great.. just take a little at a time!! Love you guys. Congrats again on being new home owners!!
