Orange is Not the New Black
Hey there fellow readers! I'm excited to start sharing with you the journey I've taken these last few months. For those of you that know me, I've been searching high and low for the perfect house here in Austin, Texas. It's been three years of patience or more like impatience at times. I'm sure all you homeowners out there have had the joy of riding the roller coaster that is home buying. So... after many offers/counteroffers, I finally closed on my first home this past August. Yay.
While many homeowners are looking for the ideal turnkey home or even new build, my set of criteria looked a little different. Now of course I started out with this long wish list, but as reality set in, it quickly whittled down to the essentials. So, what I have here are the two criteria that stuck around:
- A fixer-upper that needed some major work
- Good bones in regards to the floor plan
And now onto the tour of the new casa...
Overall the house was very clean and with the original homeowners selling the home, it meant they took good care of the home. And although the house came with some stellar wallpaper, I was definitely ready for some big changes to happen.
More updates to come, huzzah!
