So this house, wow. We didn’t expect to buy as soon as we did and we certainly didn’t expect to find someone as wonderful as what we did! We had three requirements for a house: 1. It needed to be on land. 2. It needed to get good internet so Joshua could work from home. 3. Location. We needed to be within a 1/2 hour of Lafayette. This house has it all.
It was built in 1877 and sits on nearly 3.5 acres. There are four bedrooms, we use three of them and the fourth is Joshua’s office. We are the first owners who are not decendents of the builder of the home. That is really humbling to think about.
There are a few changes we are going to make, mostly it’s just redoing the kitchen to make it more friendly for my cooking style. I currently have a 1960s stove in there though and it is pretty cool, but I need something bigger. Aside from that and adding some more insulation to the attic, the house was/is in great shape. The previous owners took great care of it…and kept receipts of everything done for the past 10 or more years!
So that’s the new house. We love it. The kids love it. We are accepting visitors so let me know when you have time to come by!
