Here we go....

It appears that the latest offer I made on a different house last weekend isn't close enough to what the bank wants on the home. So, we are moving forward with house #1 (picture below). I will have an inspection done in the next week and then we will know for sure whether its a go or not. As long as there are no major issues with the house and we would expect VA to approve the home for a loan, then I will be moving into my new home in about 45 days!

Here it is...

I am already thinking about all the things I want to do to it. It needs a paint job really bad! I am thinking about painting the body of the house grey, the gutters white with other small white accents and the shutters black. I love that combination of black, grey and white. And one of the other things I want to do is to take out the front yard and create a circular driveway so it will be easier getting in and out of the driveway. Better for Jovanna's bus situation too. It usually takes her about 1-2 minutes to get out to the bus in the mornings after they arrive. They are very nice and wait for her. However, I think we would have problems with this situation on this street because there would be a row of cars behind the bus on this street and I doubt they will much tolerate waiting for Jovanna to get out to the bus. If we create a circular drive then the bus can pull right in to that and everyone will be happy.

Aww, Carrie...it's so pretty! I don't blame you on wanting to create the driveway! Good luck with your renovations!
