Well it finally happened–we got our new home!! We were able to close last week and I still can’t believe it actually happened. I really wasn’t sure we would ever see this day come with all the delays and setbacks we had over the last three months, but it finally all came together and now we have our own little homestead! The past few days have been super hectic because we’re already working on the new floors, but I wanted to pop in and share a quick update for you guys.
If you’ve been following along with our moving journey, you might remember that the house was already far into the building process when we went under contract, so we weren’t able to choose anything other than the wall color. They had already installed dark carpet and laminate flooring throughout the house, so I knew right away that we’d want to change the floors ASAP. As soon as we got the keys we started demo! Here’s a side by side of the new wood floors vs the laminate floors we removed:
I can’t wait to see how the house looks with this new floor!! We’re doing this in all the bedrooms as well as the kitchen and living room, so it’s going to totally transform the entire place. And that light color will definitely hide the dirt a lot better than the dark laminate. Install starts tomorrow so hopefully the new floors are done by the weekend if all goes well!
I have so many ideas for this house and I can’t wait to share more of our moving journey with all of you. It’s going to be so much fun to transform this place into our dream home. (The basement construction also starts today too, so it’s a very exciting week!) And I’m just so thankful to finally have ten acres to spread our wings a little and create our own little farm. Bring on the chickens and country life, I am ready!!
Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. I always appreciate it! xoxo
