I've Got Houses on the Brain

Since the housing market is as depressed as it is, Vol Fan and I have been house shopping.

We still have our land and plan to build our dream house eventually. But our current thought is that we are in a real good position to make a purchase. We have enough for a nice down payment and it is definitely a buyer's market.

Yesterday, we made an offer on a house.

So now the only thoughts that are floating around my brain are ideas for furniture placement.

And decorating.

And actually being able to park my car in my garage.

And having central heat and air (currently we have a wood stove and window ac units!).

And landscaping.

And.....

That's so awesome! I hope you get it!

Beautiful house, but gosh that sounds like a lot of dough will be spent. Good luck if you don't mind being tied down. I wish we didn't have our house but yeah, we're stuck with it for now...

That said, since you're not having to sell a house in a buyer's market, this might just be a brilliant move. We would get screwed if we were trying to sell our house now.

I say go for it!

This is my first time to visit your blog. Congratulations on the house, hope you get it. How does that go with the moving from job to job wanderlust in your profile? Are you beginning to settle down? Or are your jobs all in one area? I see you are fairly close to my husband's job. He works in Spring City at the new General Shale brick plant.
