If you’ve been following my house hunting journey, you know I’ve toured several homes, each with their own personality and potential. After my first offer fell through, I considered a few more homes and finally decided to make another offer on a small house that was built sometime in the mid-late 1800s. While the neighborhood isn’t exactly what I had in mind, the large backyard, hardwood floors and practical floorplan make this home the perfect place for me and my pup.
The coronavirus has certainly changed our day-to-day lives in the last few weeks. On the bright side, interest rates dropped just in time to lock in a great rate on my mortgage, and since I’m currently only working part-time, I’ll be able to use those extra hours to make a dent in repairs, yardwork, painting and moving (while also social distancing). My hope is that by the time all the work is done, the pandemic will be over and I’ll be able to throw a housewarming party!
I’ve also been using this time to get ahead on some smaller DIY projects, like painting a side table and the frame of an old mirror to coordinate with my new home’s décor. To see more of my projects (and progress on my home) be sure to follow me on Instagram.
