Our House, in the Middle of Our Street

I'm so glad we are finally in our house! It was a long time coming and I think we got a great one.

There are some things we are required to do to the house per the HOA that were approved in the original plans. We have to put up a rail on the front porch, it has to be painted the color of the slats, black shutters on the three windows, a chimney cap, bushes and trees in the yard, etc. It's going to be a pain and the look will change a bit. There are also things inside that need to be done: blinds throughout, handles on the drawers in the kitchen and bathrooms, etc. The joys (and expense) of a foreclosure home...heck, just a home in general. But it's OURS and we love it!!!
