Our First House

I suppose before we start blogging about our home renovation projects we should show you our house! We started house hunting last April (hard to believe it's been a year already) and looked at an almost-record 25 houses before finding the right one. We did bid on two prior to this one and were temporarily devastated when we didn't get them, but we are thankful every day that we ended up here. We finally found it in July, leaving us just enough time to close before our wedding. We got in by the skin of our teeth, meaning we closed on August 25, 2011 and our wedding was September 3, 2011. Insane. It's the perfect little starter house for us and Miss Oatsy and we're enjoying settling in and planning our renovation projects.

Without further ado, our first house......!

It's a 4 bedroom, 1 bath 1946 cape with a teeny tiny kitchen but an enormous dining room, a full unfinished basement and TONS of character. There are built-ins EVERYWHERE in this house, which is spectacular since the closet space is slightly lacking (from a woman's perspective). We both love homes that you can tell were built and lived in with love, and this is definitely one of them, so we intend to take good care of it and add our own love and character to it as we make it our own. We're excited to share our cute little first house with our friends, families and the blogging world and hope some of our projects/ideas/fiascos/stories may inspire you or at least make you laugh.
