New House - Part 1

We played our cards right and were lucky to sell both of our houses within 3 months of each other. And despite moving two times during that time and now expecting our first child,  we have decided to go "all in" on this beautiful home:

This is our dream home ... well not quite yet.  To say this house is a disaster would be an understatement. In true Houston style, this will be torn down to make way for something that hopefully my family and I will live in for many years to come.

Suffice it to say the previous owner was quite old and was a hoarder. But friends and family were interested to see what hidden treasurers might lie within the layers of trash. We found $100 in cash, a bunch of old coins, a loaded .22 pistol, and well ... lots and lots of trash.

This will be the first of many blogs where I will chronicle the progress of this grand adventure we are undertaking. I have no illusions that this will be easy or without it's difficulties (my blood pressure is already equal the the cost of this house and rising!), but I hope this will be a good way to share the goings on and try to enjoy this once in a lifetime process.

Wish us luck!
