    We purchased our home in late September 2016.  I fell in love with this house immedietly and everything about it.  I would stop by to visits this home on my way to work, and on my way home.  We walked thru it several times before we bought it, sat on the back porch and just had the “feeling” of living here.  Anyway, we bought it, it was a big deal because it just happened just fast.

    Our house was built in 1978, equipped with popcorn ceilings and all.  A little outdated, but I could see past the flaws.  I like the idea of a fun challenge, so I immediately started planning.
