Getting A New House; Making A New Home

We just got a new old house -- a real fixer-upper, priced low enough for us to pay in cash. (Almost as mind blowing as the restoration work we have to do!)

One of the joys of a new house, is day dreaming about how we'll live there, make it our home. Given that it will take us so long to restore the house, those days are years away... Meanwhile, I've been reveling in the chance to organize where we are living now. Making sure to reuse and recycle not only what's in the old farm house but what's in the house we rent now, we are getting rid of the rest. (Sooo many trips to the thrift shops to donate; so many vintage and antique items in our personal collections going up for sale!) It's not only changing the way we will live, but the way we live now.

Whether you've been thinking about restoring an old farm house, taking advantage of the deals to be found in the current housing market, or just need a different house to accommodate your needs, mortgage rates are very low right now.

That’s a pretty good deal, and the house looks amazing! It looks classy and spacious. Just a little painting and redecorating and it will surely look as good as new. It wouldn’t hurt too, if you add some decorations on the porch to make it look more classic. Good luck with the restoration!

You can't compare the emotions you feel when you've bought a new home, especially when you’re going to spend your days in it with your love ones. You also can't wait to finish the renovations that need to be done with it. It's good to recycle and buy furniture and items at thrift stores. The important thing is you've found a home, where you and your family will create memories. Good luck!

That’s what I love about the thought of moving into a new house – the renovations and re-decorating! Adding your own personal touch will surely make you feel closer or attached to your new house. Just enjoy the whole process and the new memories!
