    Talking We put an offer on a house yesterday, and we got it!!!

    Some of you may remember I posted a few weeks ago that my wife and I put an offer on a house, but it was beat by a competing offer. Well, we gave it a second shot yesterday, put an offer on another house and our offer was chosen! This place is even better than the last one

    Man, are we psyched! Been renting for a while, very excited to get our feet wet and our hands dirty with a place of our own. The garage is not as big as I was hoping but, it'll do. We're not the kind of people that garage our cars anyway so it looks like I have a new workshop, plus the back yard is HUGE so I'll build a shed out there at some point.

    So yea,
    • good size house, check
    • big back yard, check
    • great school district for the kiddo, check

    It's a good day.

    Congrats!!!
    Home ownership is awesome. Sure it's a challenge to replace a hot water heater or outlet on the fly but it's nice to be able to do what you want to your property...
    Congratulations again! Awesome milestone for you and your family.
    Best,

    Thanks Gorminrider

    Maybe once we're moved into the new place, and have a better idea of what the storage situation look like, I'll start a 'Shed Thread' on here and we can BS about it.
