As you've probably noticed, I haven't posted in awhile. Also, I never got a chance to finish up my round of Halloween pin-ups from last month! This is all because we moved. Yeap, we moved into our very first house! We wound up closing on our little house a bit earlier then expected and decided to pack it up and move in sooner rather then later.
The story of our house is a bit strange...well not really strange, more like: right place right timing? We were just looking at homes, mostly to get an idea of what we would have to prepare for. With the housing market being so low right now, we figured we should get our feet wet and look around. If we could find something great-if not, we'd stay put and continue to save everything we could.
Well, in late July we met up with an agent and took a look at a few houses. This was the very first one we saw and we fell in LOVE! Every house we were shown after was compared to the little yellow house. Soon after we put a bid in, it was accepted and that was THAT! It went so quickly and everything seemed to move along smooth. We feel pretty lucky there wasn't much aggravation during the process (I've heard so many horror stories!).
We moved from Brooklyn out to Huntington Village, Long Island, which is a beautiful, quiet and "far enough but not too far" from the city. Everything on our street is super old, which we love! The house was built in 1820 (crazy!) which blows my mind. I posted a few pictures of how it looks right now, we have a few house projects in mind, too. But all in all, we love it! I plan on making a trip to the historical society in town to get more info on the house and property. I'll be sure to post more soon, but in the meantime I'll be playing catch up with work for the next month or so!!
Here are a few photos of the house so far...
