Court and I have just gone under contract on a beautiful house in Harrison, TN. It's about 15 minutes away from our apartment, so still nice and close to Papa and Gramma, as well as many of the fun things that Ryan and I do in Hixson.
The house is almost 1400 square ft, 3 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath. It has a wood burning fireplace, complete with a nice mantle in the den downstairs and an unfinished basement (but a NICE one) for storage. The only bad things are: only 1 tub (I was really hoping for at least a second shower so the tub could be used primarily for Ryan's baths), no overhead light in the living room (that drives me batty, I hate lamps, lol) and no garage for Court...
BUT the HVAC unit was just added in June, so it's brand new. The carpets are new. The paint is new. The hot water heater is brand new. It doesn't need any work really at all aside from some customizations (like the frilly pink wallpaper in the bathroom o.O).
So, now it's just a waiting game for the bank and everyone to do their thing in the background. Hopefully we'll be able to close by the end of the month! Time to start packing!
Keep us in your prayers and thoughts that everything goes smoothly and that we close with no issues. :) We're really, really excited.
This will be our first home and I can't wait! :D :D
