My, Soon to Be, House






I recently put a bid on a home and miraculously my offer was accepted. Needless to say, if all goes well with escrow, I should be packing up and moving in at the end of the month. I am really excited. I must admit, as far as the home itself is concerned I had seen layouts that I liked much more, but none of the actual homes that I really, really liked had a yard. A yard is important to me. I like space and gardens--yes, that is right, gardens. It is in my DNA. My grandparents had a nice garden and I always knew that I wanted one too. I'm looking forward to planting fruit trees, nuts, berries, vegetables, and yes, even having a section that will resemble an English garden. Perhaps something like this garden I visited when I was in Sweden. The home isn't too shabby either. It does have some fixing up to do, but it is a really good deal that I received on it. Needless to say, I am quite happy.
My next plan is to get some guys to rent rooms from me. . . that is until I find the right woman to settle down with and start a family. :)
Anyhow, enjoy the pictures and let me know what you think.

Brett! You're a grown up now. I'm still trying to grow up. :) Can you even imagine the joy of your own garage, driveway, and no shared walls? It looks like a great house! Well done!

Nicole said...

Congrats Brett! It looks lovely, and I'm sure it'll be nice to get out of your apartment. I can't wait to see it. Will you be in by the weekend of May 9th? That's the next time I'll be in Cali.

Can I come over and have Kyle stomp around upstairs?

And what is that reddish wooden structure in the back yard by the lampost? Hot tub? Sauna? Meat locker?

This is fab, Brett!

I'd totally love to help with your English garden! You know that's my dream...

How exciting! Do you know what ward you'll be in? From the look of the house, I'm gonna guess it's a newer development so probably Highland, San Sevaine, or Victoria.
