We got the house!

The sellers accepted our bid, so now we wait for the home inspection. Considering it was built in 1924, I am expecting him to find some problems. Hopefully, they will not be anything major. I can't wait for the home inspection. It will give us an opportunity to see the house again. I plan to take a ton of pictures and measure the rooms so we can start planing what we will need to buy. Everything has happened so fast. I can't believe that we only started looking at houses on Thursday and are already in contract on a house! So excited, yet so nervous. Ah...let's hope I can stop thinking about the house and get some sleep tonight.

Long time, no blog :(

Well and for good reason. I have been very busy finishing up my research, working on papers for publication, applying for jobs, working on my thesis, and searching for a house. Wowzers...way too much on my mind! Well Dylan and I found an awesome house today and just pit in an offer. We are so excited! We will know tomorrow if they accept or counter offer. We heard there may be another offer going in today so hopefully our offer is good enough. This house is really a gem. It is a beautiful 1920's brick Tudor style home with nice landscaping and a gorgeous slate roof. The owers have really taken such great care of this house and have upgrated the kitchen and bathrooms. I am still a bit shocked that this house was in our price range. Anyways, I have attached some pictures. Wish us luck! Hopefully, they will accept our offer, then I can start thinking about where to set up my soap lab!
