The best house yet!

UPDATE: We can't afford the house of beauty. Well, we could IF it was in Ventura or Santa Barbara counties since those counties have a $15,000 forgivable grant for first time home buyers. But I suppose if the house were in one of those counties, then the price tag would be well over $179k, ya think?

We'll know tomorrow, hopefully, if we are able to afford this house. It's a house that we'll probably never move out of. Unless, of course, the Lord tarries and the kids move out. The pics are out of order, of course. :)

Front of the house.

Front porch


Back patio

Back fence.

The breakfast nook. The kitchen is on the left, family room behind and the dining area is through that door. Oh, and the wall on the right doesn't go all the way to the ceiling. I thought that was different and kinda cool!


Here's a great view of that wall I was telling you about. Kitchen is on the left, staircase on the right.

upstairs bedroom #1

the jack & jill bathroom shower. I love that shower wall! It goes about 3/4 of the length of the shower. It rocks!

Upstairs bedroom #2

Part of the master bath

Downstairs bedroom - I love the chandelier.

Backyard view from the big kitchen window.

I like the artwork on the walls in the family room.

This is the front porch. So cute!

This is the front door and living room. I was standing in the dining area.

There's a door connecting the dining area to the kitchen. I was standing in the doorway. The kitchen is on the right. The family room is straight ahead. Through that doorway behind Jeremiah is the downtairs bathroom as well as the only downstairs bedroom.

the raised grilling area is on the right.

I seriously can't believe they don't want more money for this house! But we can only afford it if the rumor of gov't funding is true. We heard that for first time home buyers, they gov't (I think it's the gov't anyway...they seem to have lots of money to give away) pays for a 20% down payment. It that gets paid for, then our monthly payments would be less than $1,000/month (I think).

I'm excited and nervous and I don't want to get my hopes up cause I will be sooooo sad if we don't get this house. If God is cool with us living here, then we'll get it. If we can't afford it, then we'll find something else.

Prayers with you friend! That house is SWEET! He can line it up for you if it's right and good and best. Stay close to Him and you'll know before the bank does! :)
