A Home for Us!
We've had a great time scoping out the High Springs area. As we began looking for a home, we realized we would do much better to buy a place rather than rent. Our monthly bill would be cut in half, which is a huge blessing!
On one of our trips we found a nice manufactured home on 5 acres of property. As we first drove up to the property, I wasn't very interested....there are no trees! But, when we saw how big the house is, and the excitement of having an open slate to plant the trees we want, we knew this was the place we wanted to try to get!
There is plenty of work to do on the inside, like replacing carpet. Right now the carpet is red and the previous owner had cats....that won't quite do for my allergic hubby. And we want to paint and put "our touch" into the inside of the home. I can't wait to post the before and after photos!
The closing is scheduled for November 3rd. At that time we will head up there to do some painting and cleaning, then we will come back to get all of our things. So exciting!
