Last month, I wrote about some reactions to the news that we’re expecting a baby. Now we have some additional news that we’ve been sharing with people. Here are some of the reactions we’re getting.
“You have NO IDEA what you’re getting in to.”
*laughter* “Oh, you were serious!”
“That’s GREAT! I’m so happy for you!”
“A REALLY, REALLY, REALLY…. BIG, BIG, BIG project!“
So…. We’re planning to sell this house:
And buy this one:
The place we’re buying is my grandpa’s farmstead. As you can see, the house needs a lot of work. We’ll hire the same person that did some remodeling in our current house to work on it. We’ll be replacing the foundation, siding, roof, interior walls, wiring, plumbing, etc. A big project for sure. But it should be very nice when it’s done.
The floorplan on that house is, for us, more suited for having children around. It has some large common areas and smaller bedrooms (our current house is the opposite). The house is smaller than our current one, which is actually a plus. Terah is even interested in learning how to drive on dirt roads! Plus it will be nice to live at a place that’s been in the family for so long.
Also, there’s little chance that this area will be developed any time soon.
I’ll post some more pictures in the next few days.
