Finally Finally Finally!


Recommended Posts

well a couple of u guys knew that i was looking into getting a house soon and very few knew that i had found one and started the escrow and all the rest of the FUN stuff that comes along with getting a home. well after about 2.5 months of waiting for escrow to close i finally got the keys today!!! i'm pretty exited right now but i dont think i had hit me quit yet. it's not much but it's al mine and considering i'm still kind of young(only 22) and this s something i did on my own i'm pretty damn happy right now...


wel it's a 2 bedroom 1 bath home with a formal living room dining room an den, 2 fireplaces 2 car garage and nice size yard. house was built in 1940 it's only about 1,500 sq ft and the lot is about 6,100 sq ft which isnt much but it'sonly me so i'm not gonn need too much more for a while.

I just bought a house in early may, I'm 21. Had to re do it and such also; definitely fun. Took me about a month, one bedroom left and dining room but at least I'm moved in!


Congratulations! remember to keep it fun and unique :)

congrats man!!! I just bought a house back in April and let me tell you, once you start doing stuff to it you are in trouble, every day I am changing something. I am now working on the irrigation system that was a botched job from the beginning along with getting a load bearing wall looked at by a structure engineer so I can figure out how to open up my garage into a full 3 car. For basic stuff Doityourself.com is very helpful. Good luck with everything and have fun with it!!!
