Our home buying experience was...in a word, CRAZY. And let's just leave it at a word - because I could probably write an entire blog just about this. It was a wild ride (and hey, nothing is TOTALLY final until closing right?) but after some stress, tears, and prayers, (with some fun and excitement thrown in there too) this is the house we decided on and we feel great about it!
Built in 1975. Split level entry. 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, kitchen, dining room, living room, family room. 2 car tuck-under garage (a must for those Minnesota winters).
This picture is deceiving: it looks like a hill but it's actually pretty flat - flat enough for a swing set even : ) Beyond the grass is a wooded area that is also part of the property. The kids are gonna love it! In fact, when we told Noah that we bought a house he said, "Which one? The brown one with the trees? Yes! That's the one I wanted! I changed my mind about moving. I want to move to Rochester." Noah pronounces it "Wachista, Mini-soda" and Alex has already got the accent down : )
The entire main level has beautiful wood floors, which we love
That corner hutch is a built-in. Hurray!
All 3 bedrooms are on the main level, which I'm so happy about
We LOVE the bathroom - it even has a clawfoot tub
The lower level family room is going to be the playroom. HEAVEN!
Other than taking down some wallpaper and painting it's move in ready! It may not be a dream home, but it is a MAJOR upgrade for us and we couldn't be happier!
Did I mention that it has a dishwasher?!?! We're really moving up in the world : )
