well, there are some log homes in NH but most of them are up north- like WAY up north. finding one in our area is all but impossible.
well- we found one! and we bought it- i can't even believe it! it's 30 min from where we live now & right in between EVERYTHING! our work, our parents- everything!
here it is:
front outsideliving room
master bedroom (#1)
I LOVE IT!!! it's got:
bedroom (#3) (downstairs/basement)
back/side yardclose up of front
I LOVE IT!!! it's got:
a deck out back
hardwood floors & etc etc!
it's on 1.71 acres & it's way far back off the road. we've got woods & neighbors (not too close though!) and it's in the "country" but so close to everything!
it was crazy too- we were the last showing because they wanted to sell THAT DAY!
we went & looked at 11:30am.
we fell in love. (they had DOXIE stuff EVERYWHERE! they had pictures & tons of stuff- and they had one (but he wasn't there)- it was like a sign!!)
we cancelled our next 3 showings.
we called the seller's agent & were told that there were already 4 offers over the asking price- YIKES!
we went & wrote up the offer (and a letter to the sellers) @ 2:30pm.
we prayed & crossed our fingers
our offer got accepted at 3:30pm!!!!
...and then the husband realized that he had lost his wallet ::slap::
it all worked out to perfectly (minus the lost wallet)- GOD IS GOOD! they put it on the market @ $179,900 which is MAD LOW! the offers coming in were for $185,000! so we went in at $187,000 with the promise that we'd offer $1k over the highest offers up to $190,000. i also wrote a letter about our own doxies, our love of their home & the baby (heh) and i guess they liked us best because they picked us!!! our final price: $187,000!
i'm so stoked we won a bidding war! and i'm so stoked that we got it so cheap!! they reeeeally needed to sell it. we were looking in the $235,000 range & then BAM! this comes along ::squee::
ok- this is too long so i'm going to end it. basically, we close in about 30 days & should be in by the end of May!! the husb's brother is renting our condo, so as soon as the permission comes through we'll be good to go! i can't wait to move in & get to work on the nursery! now i don't have to paint (well, 1 wall- but that's nothing!)
