My new house

Well, I shouldn't say new, it was built in 1925. But it's new to me.

Seller finally got all of their crap out of the house and we officially closed on it today, and got the rest of the keys. Even though, we've been in the house quite a bit before and done some minor work to it.

The outside from the front.



Side of the house with a driveway I can't use just yet because there's a stupid curb in the way. Epic fail gets fixed by jackhammer?



The back of the house.



Crapload of sunflowers by my other driveway.


Where the speed shall sleep.


My workshop.



The secondary man cave. AKA, basement.




Oh look, I can walk from one man cave right out into the other, the garage!


The stairs going down into the basement kind of suck. I've hit my head on them a few times already.


Got plenty of storage in the basement.



Broom closet or something. I dunno, its a strange room.


The kitchen.



The family room.




The bathroom.



Bedroom # 1.




Bedroom # 2.


Dining room.


Hallway opening going to the bedrooms and bathroom from the dining room.


Living room.




It's been an exciting and stressful couple of months. For me and the lady. It's one of the first big steps we've taken together. We are both glad to be done renting and into something that we own. Thankfully there isn't any work that we need to do to the house, everything is in pretty good shape. Although, there is a gas leak that wasn't caught during the inspection which we found today but will be repaired here in a couple of hours. Lovely walking into the home you just purchased for the first time and getting a whiff of natural gas. :x But, gas has been shut off, so it isn't a big deal. Not like we need it anyways, everything is electric in the house but the furnace. And with it being 104 freaking degrees outside, I don't think we need a furnace anytime soon.

So don't expect any updates in my car thread about new mods anytime soon. Got a lot of things I need to do to the house first, like get some blinds in the family room, get better furniture, all that fun important stuff.

A revolution gets its name by always coming back around in your face.

Re: My new house

That whole man cave/garage combo is sweet! That garage should stay nice and cool in the summer.

Re: My new house

What's a "basement"? :P JK. I wish I had one. Darn California and its earthquake potential. But that's pretty sweet how you can go right from the basement to the garage! Congrats on the new place!

Re: My new house

Looks nice, Brent. I love those older homes that are well kept. Wish they had those in areas of Dallas that weren't in the DISD....

Re: My new house

What do houses like that go for in MO? I saw the front pic and though "small" but the rest of the pics proved me wrong. I love the kitchen. In NJ a house like that in most towns would be min. 325,000.
