Home Ownership

Tomorrow, Marty and I will become homeowners.  We are filled with various emotions about this, but are mostly excited about our new place to call home.

Home Stats:
4 bedrooms
3 bathrooms
3147 sq ft
large kitchen
large enclosed lanai
living room with a fireplace
formal dining room
laundry room (that could double as another bedroom)
2 car garage
detached garage

We first saw this home in July.  During our walk through, we we able to look past the wood parquet floor and pink tile bathroom and see a place that felt like home to us both.  While house hunting in Florida, we saw some nice homes, yet none felt "homey" to us.  This house was the first that we could envision our family growing in and enjoying.

The space in this home was the big selling point.  Marty's job as a youth pastor means we need to be able to have people in our home, lots of people.  This home has two big living spaces that will do just that.  Also, both of our families live far away, and the bedrooms in this home will accommodate them visiting.

The list of projects is long, as well as the timeline, but this home is very livable.  We are very excited to embark on this new adventure together as a family, and can't wait to feel settled soon!
