WE GOT THE HOUSE!!!

oh yes we did.


First, we finally got to meet face to face with Mr. Escrow!!


Oh hello Mr. Stewart Title. What a pleasure meeting your acquaintance. Especially under these circumstances. Rather special I must say!!


oh yes we did photo 2908488-1


And here is a picture of us signing the million pages of docs!! {Note the tired look on my face. This is how one looks after 90 days in contract. Swollen, tired and just doooone!!}


oh yes we did photo 2908488-2


Any who, after wrapping up with signing docs, we decided to finish the night off by having breakfast for dinner. oh so yummy! Never wanted/needed coffee more than I did after signing the docs!


oh yes we did photo 2908488-3


About 90 days of hustling and this is what we got!!!


oh yes we did photo 2908488-4


oh yes we did photo 2908488-5


 


NOW ON TO REHABBING THIS BABY!!!!


Good Bye yucky carpets


 


oh yes we did photo 2908488-6


Adios mr. big ginormous hideous bar in the family room. I will not miss you!


oh yes we did photo 2908488-7


oh yes we did photo 2908488-8


See ya later laminate in laundry rooms and bathrooms!


oh yes we did photo 2908488-9


Mr. Pergo, sad to see you go. Although you're in perfect condition, I just can't have you in the kitchen. Tah-tah!


oh yes we did photo 2908488-10


say la ve bacterial pool and hot tub! you made me cringe every time I saw you. But I always knew the beauty you held within. See the new you in a week! =)


oh yes we did photo 2908488-11


oh yes we did photo 2908488-12


Oh mr. Electrical. How you have been a pain in the a$$ during this whole process. NOT COOL! By not having you up and running has made this experience 10x more challenging. I am so happy to be replacing you. PEACE OUT!!!


oh yes we did photo 2908488-13


See ya never weird wall in the garage. Your purpose in this home did not serve a good one. Both you and I know. I think it is only right to tear you down!! You've been a very bad wall!! And a hazardous one at that!!


oh yes we did photo 2908488-14


We're doing so much more to the house, but for now. I'll just post the above. Our contractor guestimates about 3-4 weeks of completion depending on how quickly PG&E works with us. 


YAY!! WE'RE HOME OWNERS!!!! 


Ladies... all that hard work that seems so unnecessary and redundant.... just do it! Take it one day at a time or even one task at a time. Take it from me!!! I just found out that my loan (203k) is one of the toughest loans to do.... and we did it!!! So hunters, keep on keepin' on. YOU CAN DO IT!! =)
