So...how about a little more detail on that house I mentioned in the last post?! The big selling (renting?) point on the house is that it is about ten minutes from where Matt will be working, so in theory he could even come home for lunch! We are signing the lease for a year starting in July, and we have our current townhouse until the end of July, so ideally we will be able to slowly move our stuff up there and hopefully avoid living out of boxes.
There is the snag of Matt being gone for about two weeks in the middle of July, but we will make it work! (He is going to CUBA as a translator with our church mission trip! How cool is that?! I know! Really cool!) The house is a three bedroom, one and a half bath, renovated farmhouse.
As you can see from the watermark, these are NOT my pictures, they were emailed to us by the owner, who is very nice by the way.
The downstairs is definitely the best part of the house, there is a cute little kitchen, and a open dining room/living room.
I don't have any pictures of the upstairs, but rest assured - they will be taken eventually! We were happy to hear the owner tell us we are more than welcome to paint, and Jack has already picked out a VERY bold blue for his room...we will see about that!
So there you have it! The farmhouse rental that we will be calling home for at least a year! This may not be the route I wanted, but I am going to do my very best to make this a wonderful place to call home for us.
I would LOVE to hear your feedback. Matt and I have some pretty good ideas in our little noggins, but what do YOU see happening in this house? What colors would you paint? What would you plant outside?
