It is ours

7 Jun

We closed escrow.  The house is ours.  Now for the work.

We spent our Memorial Day weekend at the house. 

Painting, cleaning, roofing, fixing leaks, fixing drawers, scrubbing showers…..

Look closer at this one.  Its not great, but if you look close you can see the bottom part of the wall is greyish and the top is more white.

Yeah, we had to clean every wall and ceiling.  Before we started painting, we wiped a few walls and realized that the entire house was covered in soot.  Apparently the furnace had been blowing unclean gas.  I can’t imagine what these poor people before us had been breathing in for years.

We had lots of help.  That is my mom and David Cordes. 

I felt very loved that we have great friends and fam who were willing to spend their time off scrubbing and painting.

Its not ready yet but its gettin there.  Even though it is a lot of work (and we spend slightly more money than we had anticipated), we are thankful that God has opened this door for us.

    No. We own 2 houses now. One we will use as a rental.

    Oh ok. I must have thought that you are already closed escrow on this one.
