365 Project – Day 307 – Our House, in the Middle of Our Street

Okay, so it’s not technically “our” house yet, but we’re inching closer. We made it through the home inspection tonight and got back a fantastic report. Besides a cracked window on the sunporch, a couple of wires in the basement and on the dryer outlet that need casings, one loose shingle near the top of the roof (but no leaks to be seen), and one pipe under the kitchen sink that’s a little drippy, everything checked out and we’re one step closer to closing on our house and moving.

Whew!

I was pretty optimistic about the inspection. I mean, some houses you just know have issues. You can see them (or smell them) the moment you walk through the door (and believe me, we’ve seen and smelled plenty of them these past 10 months of househunting). This house, on the other hand, just felt solid. Hell, you have to give it a certain amount of credit for the fact that it has survived over 120 years. And my guess is, with a little TLC, it’ll be around for at least another 120.

So, we’ll keep moving foward and, if all goes well, we could be moving in by Thanksgiving! Keep those fingers crossed for us! We’re one step closer to seeing this…

Tonight’s 365 Project entry is dedicated to checking one more item off our home-buying checklist. Just a few left to go!
