Okay folks, I know I left you hanging last week when I dropped a bombshell that we are moving. (Okay, okay, maybe I’m being a little too dramatic here.)
Well, I’m back and ready to spill more deets about the new digs (aka house #2). We love house #1 and I have spent the last three years updating it and making it our own, but our dream is to live a little further out, on a little more land, in a smaller one-story home. After following the Total Money Makeover plan for what seems like forever and a day, we finally paid down all our debt and had enough money in the bank and equity in the house to sell it and move into our dream house (which just happens to be cheaper than house #1. Dave Ramsey would be so proud).
When our perfect home popped up in the mls one day, it was a no-brainer to jump on it:
I have several more projects and tutorials for house #1, but for today lets just focus on the house tour for house #2. Holla! And, obviously, I can’t buy a house unless it is oozing with potential, though it isn’t quite there yet, so keep that in mind as you look at the neon green walls… I am a DIYer after all.

Eventually I want to redo all the floors in the main living space to the same type of flooring for a more cohesive look.

We actually moved into the house yesterday (Saturday) but I have been so incredibly busy the past month that I am really backlogged with projects to blog about. I actually spent 3 days last week doing some DIYing in the new house in preparation for new carpet that was installed Friday. For the first time in my life I picked out, ordered, and purchased carpet. I guess I’m officially a grownup now.
If you have any questions about the new house or are curious about something that I haven’t mentioned yet, ask in the comments and I’ll put together a Q&A post.
