Some lovely fall roses bloomed just for this occasion: today would have been my son, Ryan's, 23rd birthday. I am honoring and remembering him today.
On another note:
We are under contract on the house purchase. Please continue to keep your fingers (and everything else) crossed that the bank accepts our offer, as this is a short sale, and they have the final say.
Here are a couple of pictures taken the day of the inspection...
Living room with true divided-light windows and wood burning fireplace insert. The floors are oak. All original doors and trim are intact. The house was built in 1934 and was moved to its current location in the 1950's when the university in town expanded.
Back side of living room showing original french doors leading out to a screened porch. The huge back yard can just barely be seen through the doors.
Kitchen. Not sure about the red pendant lights or the cutesy curtains, but I love the layout, the butcher block island top, and the cabinet space.
More photos to come as the deal progresses. The house needs some system updates and fixes, such as a new boiler and cleaning up of some of the wiring. Structurally, it is quite sound.
I hope today finds you all well and happy.
Until next time...
