New Digs

If you have read my posts labeled "Troubling Times", you know that we have been looking for a new place to live.
God has delivered. Again. There was never a doubt that he would.

Our new home will be "in the city" compared to "in the country village" that we currently live in.

We were able to get this little house at a reasonable price. It was gutted, needs new water pipes and drains, um, floors, walls, ceilings, etc. etc. We should be able to have it functional before our required exit date of June. We acquired it last week and have been working on it everyday this week. One of the main things is peeling off layers and layers of flooring to get to the original floor. This house has had three to four layers of tile or linoleum over the years and wall paper. It has no cute....but it will. It has a fireplace: cute! The previous owners mercifully spared the hard wood floors in four rooms. I didn't care what kind of floor our new home had ( I secretly wished for hard wood) as long as it wasn't carpet. I think carpet is a bit over rated. It has these gnarly uneven arched door ways here and there. CUTE. This house has potential for a lot of character and just quirky enough to be c. u. t. e.

Our dirty hands and my wounded thumb.

Stay tuned ......

    Can't wait to read your progress reports.

  4. how exciting!!! Lots of potential that, but I'm sure lots of work too.

  5. OH, I love quirky older houses! They are so fun to make your very own -- nothing like making a house a home! You will have lots of backaches getting it all ready but oh how exciting it is that God blessed you with a place that you can dream and live in!
