This is a story about how I bought my first house and turned it into my dream home one room at a time.
My name is Sarah and I bought a home in September of 2012. I looked far and wide for the perfect home for many years. Thankfully I had a great realtor to help me through the process. She was very patient and listened to what I wanted and ended up helping me find the best home ever.
Unfortunately I couldn’t see all the beauty in this home from the beginning. It took a little convincing and a great contract to get me the upgrades I needed to make it livable (central AC, updated wiring, new roof, and new sewer). See, this house was built in 1926, and the lady I purchased it from (Bernie) was 95 when she sold it to me. She had lived here many, many years and it is quite original in many aspects.
Needless to say this home needs work. The good thing is I am excited to do that work, but on a budget. I thought you might want to follow me through my projects and purchases to see how I–with the help of my Husband Taylor (Chet), my Dad, and some other helpful individuals–turn this old house into my home.
