Announcement!

Just wanted to let everyone know that WE ARE MOVING!!! We actually put an offer on this home back in January and are just now a couple weeks away from finally closing the deal. Let me tell you, it has been a roller coaster ride!! So much going on with this, so many ups and downs, so many times we thought we got it and we thought we would NOT get it.

So, pictures to come soon. Some details you may want to know:
  1. 2300 square foot home
  2. 3 car garage
  3. Built in the '90s
  4. Seperate HUGE Shop, did I say HUGE, let me emphasize the HUGE FACTOR
  5. 1 1/2 acres
  6. Cosmetic Fixture
  7. Flag Lot
  8. Long Driveway
  9. Tree House
  10. Partially Fenced Yard
  11. Partial Walk Around Porch
  12. PORCH SWING!! (Probably, hands down, my favorite spot!)
  13. Gas and wood burning fireplace
So, of course it has land and the shop. The house isn't exactly what I would choose. (If you were wondering I would choose brand new, hardwood floors, stainless steel appliances, gorgeous fixtures, you get the idea.) BUT, we are planning to fix it up and get it the way that we want it. Steve has given me the thumbs up to do it the way I want it to be done! I have had to get use to the idea that it is all garages on the bottom floor and you have to walk up a flight of stairs to the front door. Definitely not my first chose, but it is growing on me. I'm liking the fact that it will be different then your "standard" home and excited for what we will do with it.
Well, that is about it. I have to get in packing mode!! I'm so not stressed about this move, not yet, but it will come. I don't know if that is good or bad. The stress gets me to work hard and get it done. I have had so many people offer to help and I am so grateful for it. So, we will be packing up and heading out.
Oh, if you were wondering. We are planning to rent our townhome out. Do you know anyone who would be interested in renting a 2100 sq ft townhouse??

  4. Our renter is planning on moving to Beaverton in a couple of months. He's been the PERFECT renter. I thought I'd give him info on your house. Do you have an ad posted yet? What contact info should I give him for you?
