We are 6 weeks out from the wedding, and almost everything is done. All I have left to do is make the programs and escort cards. Both which I cannot do until mid-September. There is no thread about our house. Haha. We just accepted the bank's counter offer. We still have to do inspections and all that jazz. However, our financing is already lined up and the bank REALLY wants to close. It is a foreclosure (aka really great deal.) It is 3 bedroom, 2 bath on .2 acres with lots of potential. The yard backs up to a school field. Plus it is on a wide tree-lined street in a great neighborhood. [IMG]http://i25.tinypic.com/2w1zk9y.jpg
[/IMG] There will be a lot of sweat equity involved. It currently has about 10 different types of flooring, a lot of it horrid vinyl. The stairs are burgundy shag. Luckily, FI used to flip houses, my dad is a contractor and several uncles are tradesmen. One of FI's construction buddies offered to bring his trailer and men up for a week as our wedding present. We will be repainting everything. All of the flooring is being replaced with dark hardwood or travertine. Both bathrooms need to be remodeled (one is already mid-remodel.) The kitchen leaves a lot to be desired, but that project will be last. We are splitting one room directly off the garage into a mud/laundry room and an office. About 2 years down the line, we are adding a family room and new master suite.
