We're buying a house! I've kept my excitement low until now because of the last 2 houses that fell through. But today, I got an email that our loan approval was out of underwriting and it's official! We're buying a double wide house!!!!!!!! We've picked out the floor plan, we've picked out our colors (inside and out) and we have our land picked out (I have a meeting here soon about that, if they will combine 2 lots into 1 so we can build on it)
Here is the floor plan (all of my images are from Clayton Homes, which is who we're buying our home from):
So, now everything is official. Nothing can go wrong (knock on wood) that I know of...our loan is approved, our land is almost what we need (meeting soon will fix it). We should be moving in at the end of September or beginning of October. I'm so excited, we've started packing up stuff we don't need. I can't wait to own our own home, no more landlords fussing about grass not cut the way he wants it, or putting his junk in our back yard...blah!
Oh and our land, the kids will still have an awesome yard to play in, it's in town limits so we have town water and sewer and my favorite, trash pickup...it's the little things you don't realize you are going to miss until it's gone. Jeff has to haul our trash down to the recycling center right now and it's a huge pain! We're currently on a dirt road and that tears up our vehicles, we'll be moving to a paved road!!! AHHHH that's going to be awesome!!!
I'll make sure to take plenty of pictures as things progress (of the land, construction, etc).
