XP- House update (PIP!)

Well, almost.  We put in an offer last night, and the seller accepted it this morning!  It makes me think we should have offered even less, but it's still a great deal. The inspection is tomorrow!
Just for good measure, here are a few pictures! (We will be replacing the carpet and the appliances.)




^living room^kitchen (brick wall on the left, orange counter)
^basement (LOVE the stone wall and fireplace)
^HUGE backyard (H better be excited to mow)^HUGE deck. Major selling point :)
I promise I'm done being an AW now!  All updates will be on my blog.

    Congrats! Buying a house is so exciting! The house looks awesome, having a big yard is a huge plus. We live on an acre and although its a lot of yard work, we love it and so do the dogs :)

    I love it!  The exposed beams are beautiful, and I love the contrast in the kitchen.

    I can't wait to see it as you start your renovations and complete it! How exciting.

    <div>Feel free to share your visions! We're still trying to figure out what to do.  We're trying to figure out what appliances we want, first, because we'll roll those into the mortgage (with the new flooring/carpet.)  I kind of love the orange counters, though, as ridiculous as they are. </div><div>
    </div><div>I LOVE that brick wall; H thinks we should knock it down (it's already partially opened), but I'm worried we won't have anywhere to put the TV in the living room.  </div><div>
    </div><div>You know? That massive entertainment center I bought H, because we were 'certain' we weren't going to move for at least another year? Yeah. I have no clue where to put that thing in the new house.</div>

    It sort of depends on what your style is, but I'd say stainless appliances for sure.
    If you want to keep the orange counter top I'd say paint the cupboards (white? light grey?) and go with maybe a green or yellow on the walls, something that works well with the brick.

    Can your massive entertainment unit be split up at all?  Will it fit in the basement?
