December 1st, the day that our second house, officially became ours!
We are so thankful to the Lord for opening up this opportunity for us and those who supported us getting here 💕🏚🛠✔️
Before ‘Mac’ was ours, we actually helped the previous owner get rid of some things, after I got to go through and pick out things I’d like left, if he was no longer interested in owning them 😉👍🏻
Mike took multiple truck boxes and half cabs, full of throw away items to the dump, before I went over and helped fill up another.
Three loads later and the living room and guest room were emptier than before no doubt, but still no where near being empty😬🙈
So, now I will show you what you may have been seeing peeks of on my and my husbands Instagrams…the full ‘Before’ tour 😁
The previous owner of the house, had lived there his whole life, along with his wife, until she became sick and passed away.
Thus leaving him by himself and everything just majorly got away from him.
He has already told us he hopes to see the house once we are done with it, because he believes we will do some big things.
I sure hope so 😉👍🏻

Though we still have the odd photo to hang/item to find a home, the renovations are pretty much completely finished and I (we) figured it was time to show you the whole place all neat and tidy like 😉
But first, the before pictures, of course 💁🏻

Wednesday Oct 12th –
The much sought after and long awaited day finally came, the day we would no longer be homeless vagabonds but have a place to call our own👫 🏠
It was a process that started at 10:30 that morning.
We first went to the apartment to meet the current owners and look over the place one last time.
From there it was a quick drive to the office where terms, agreements, rules etc. would be read, papers signed and keys official handed over 🗝🗃
But of course things can’t go as smoothly as all that 😏
I already mentioned in the Jem Moment about us getting the apartment that the real estate guy had told us we would need an official translator for me the day papers were signed.
He then later said that no one actually wasn’t required.
We hardly sat down at the office with the realtor and owners before we were told an official, court ordered translator was indeed needed and we couldn’t go on without one 😳
Thaaaankfully there was a way around part of it, allowing us to still get the keys as expected but not having it be officially, 100% OURS until a translator could be present.
Hand shakes, keys handed over and it was (almost) ours!
We drove back to the apartment to look at the color samples I had picked the day before, Mike measured the bedroom with himself to see what size bed would be best 😋
