Our New House... hopefully!

Sorry I didn't post this the other day like I planned, the weekend was a bit crazy, and heck so was this morning.    Lots of running around going on, phone calls being made and plans being formed!

My husband's time as a recruiter is coming to an end later this year.  His next assignment will take him out of the country for a year or so.  We have decided that now is the time for us to look into truly settling down.  Once he returns from this next assignment he will only have a few short years left until he is able to retire.

We both are originally from Ohio and my family is still there.  We settled on a town mid-way between my mom and my dad.  We found the most perfect little house while we were there over the Memorial Day weekend!


It's a cute little 2 story house built in the 40s, that sits on just under half an acre.  It's on Main St... how cool is that! :-)

It is in wonderful shape, and aside from a few cosmetic things I'd like to change (IE the pumpkin orange dining room! LOL) it's perfect!

The porch is big enough for me to put a small seating area there.  Perfect for enjoying a cup of tea or coffee in the mornings!

There is a fabulous 2 level deck on the bag porch that will be great for entertaining as the back yard is big enough to put in several good sized raised beds for fruits, veggies and flowers!  There is even a small stream at the back of the property!  We are ALL super excited about having running water right nearby!  The current front flower beds are very nice, but I cannot wait to be able to fill them with all the pretty flowers I like too.

There is also a large 2 car garage that has a built in workshop with a wood burning stove, plus enough space in the drive to park several cars.  We are thinking about converting the garage into an entertainment 'room' for when we host parties and get togethers! 

Hopefully we will know more this week! *fingers crossed*

What a great house! Sounds like you are going to be very busy! :)

Thank you both! Yes, we are definitely going to be very busy over the next year or so, as I know I won't be able to complete all of the tasks we want in the next few months. But home improvement projects are a great way to keep myself busy while my hubby is gone!

That is a great house. I hope all goes well. I love how green the grass looks.
