I got the house!!!






This is my new house, brand new house. I built into the conditions of the house fridge stove and dishwasher and the GE profile series washer and dryer. I will have a sewing room in the back of the lower level with enough lighting installed. Since the basement is unfinished I am thinking that I should wire the family room for surround sound. I take possession on March 1st. Of course this is assuming all of the money stuff with the bank doesn't fall through. But my mortage guy at the bank said we were okay for a higher amount. So it shouldn't. You know what this means! I will be packing everything of mine. I am scared of finding out exactly how many boxes of fabric I really have. I mean once it is packed up . It will be out there to see. I really don't think I will have to worry about having a storage unit rented out but... I have a stash. I have to buy a living room set. I found one on sale yesterday. They say it is partially landscaped but I am going to get Brad one of my mothers friends to do up a paving stone patio out back in the summer. Spring will bring me to putting in my lilies into the yard. I have a lot of gardening to do in the future. Hopefully the transplanting I won't lose to many of my perenials. Some I have gotten from my moms garden. I have a crap load of planning to do.
OMG I bought a new house.

Congrats on getting the house! Now it's time to start packing. Don't worry about fabric you have. When we moved last year, I used my fabric to wrap my dishes and breakable items. DIdn't have to waste paper or plastic that way. Plus when it came time to pack the fabric I didn't feel overwhelmed by it.

I'm so sorry your marriage is breaking up, but happy for you that you got a house! You sound so excited, and so scared!

What a wonderfully bright house!! Congratulations!
As to the fabric -- use it to pack with. Cleaner than newspaper to wrap dishes/glassware.

Congratulations! How exciting. Having just moved all I can say is take your time unpacking the sewing room and yes there will be fabric unearthed you haven't seen in years! My DH is still shaking his head...

Congrats on your new house! The best of luck, good health and happiness.
The best thing is to take your time unpacking 'precious things' like your fabrics.
Your new house soon will be a HOME and it is very nice.
