House Inspection Today

One step closer to getting into a real house. Mom and dad had the inspection today, and were able to snap a few shots of the place.The house was built in 1951, so it has lots of charm. Translation: it will need work to be updated. LOL But we're getting it because is has a nice big yard. Mom and dad can fix the place up, no problem.

Real hardwood floors. A big bright window.

Yes, a dishwasher. Our rental doesn't have one, so mom's VERY excited about no more washing dishes by hand.

Dad likes a flat-top stove. Easier to clean. And a real dining room.
Right now, they're eating off of trays in the living room.

Interesting tile. Dad thinks it wasn't put up correctly. So it might come down pretty quick. He's been watching too much Holmes on Homes.

Mom was careful to wish for an inside laundry NOT in the kitchen. The rental has washer and dryer next to the stove and fridge. Very noisy.

The reason we're getting this place: the awesome yard.

Plenty of room for our junk, er, stuff.

Our own yard straight off a dog room.
With a giant tree for Puck and Levi to pee on.

We almost bought the house next door. But they took another offer.
The house we got has a double lot - SWEET!

I'll keep you posted on how things go.


  1. Wow! That is one big yard! Gracie, how are you going to be able to decide where to do your business? My mom says she thinks the house looks really nice, especially for 1951. I'm so excited for you and your family!

  2. We are jealous! Man, great find.
