House!

Thirteen weeks after making our initial offer, with most of the intervening time consisting of the housebuying process slowly working its way along, we now own our first house!

Thank you! It's exciting to see what the house is actually like after all this time. Some of it's better, some of it needs more work, but all in all, I think we did well with it. Especially if we find the right furniture to put everything away.

Thank you! It was exciting to discover what the garden is like, since the last time we saw it, it was in February. It's lovely! And there's more space at the front than I'd remembered, so we're thinking we can do lots of sun-friendly herb pots there.

Thank you. We haven't a clue! We don't know when we're moving, we don't know when we'll have enough furniture, and we don't know when the kitchen will be done. Do any of these things matter for a housewarming?

Thank you and yes! Completion actually happened in the morning, but the vendors weren't quite done moving out until nearly 5 pm. Still, it wasn't actually a problem for us, and they left it clean and with flowers!

Thank you! About average, from what I understand.

The vendors were lovely: they left us flowers and a fancy card with helpful advice, such as the neighbors' names and when garbage day is.

Thank you! We really haven't planned too much about the move (although we should do it soon). Instead, we're putting our current energy largely into scouting out furniture.

Thank you! I'm thrilled with the study - it's better than I remembered. It looks so very tiny from the outside. I'll have space! And a "commute"!
