We Have a HOUSE!!!!

Yes! We finally have a house.... which is a GOOD thing... I tend to worry a little about things like that... but God knew what we needed and when and as always He has provided! Now I have not physically seen this house, but Wayne knows what I like, and it, he assures me is right up my alley. The only drawback to the house is that it doesn't have big trees. It is on a cul-de-sac and the school is two blocks away. Wayne will be riding the train into D.C. It is only 1.5 miles to the train station. So he will be a "real"commuter. Time wise it will be about an hour to ride the train, but he is currently only 30 miles from work now and it takes him an hour to an hour and a half to get to work now... plus it is costing well over 500.00 a month just in gas. The train will be less than half that amount, and will cut some time off his commute.

Here is the descriptive listing: 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, finished basement w/media room, bar, over sized master suite (20 X 25), deep walk-in closets in other 3 bedrooms (13 x 15), upstairs sitting and laundry rooms, large eat-in kitchen, 3rd car garage was converted to additional living space (used as office or playroom), huge deck with enclosure and fenced backyard, 3 car driveway. .

This is way more house than we have ever had, but the price is right, and we have plenty of room for out of town visitors. Heck they could move in an we would never know it. Wayne said that the basement is 2/3 finished and rest is unfinished storage... so that makes it nice. I am not looking forward to cleaning this.... I can barely keep ahead of the house we are in now.
This is the Master Bedroom and is visible as the room right over the garage. The movers are coming the week of June 23rd. and we hope to be in the house by the first of July. We have promised Carson another trip to D.C. to see the fireworks on the National Mall.

We already have our first visitors scheduled for August. Wayne's cousin Pam and her Hubby will be down for a coin show. We are looking forward to having lots of visitors over the years to come.

GORGEOUS HOUSE! What are you going to do with 4800 sq feet?! I'm happy you found a house (or Wayne did anyway). We leave a week from today and haven't found a house. Luckily, we can stay with my mom until we do :) Good luck with everything. I'm glad to know I'm not alone--LOL!

Seeing as how we have furniture for only about half of that... I say we are going to spread out and I am going to have a huge scrapbook/craft room!
