We're home owners!

Well, not quite yet, we have to close on Friday, but it's pretty much a done deal that we have ourselves our very own house.  We've been looking for almost a year and now found this one just in time (thank you God) because Alex's brothers and Mike Shane just moved up here about a week ago and need a place to stay.  So, long story short, they're going to move into our duplex we've been in since May, while interning at our church!  Very exciting times to say the least!  And all this craziness just happens to fall right before Christmas when we're super busy and leaving for TC/Manistee for a week! AH!.......have to remember to breathe sometimes....

Anyways, here is a link to view the listing of the house:
(It is a bit of a fixer-upper, mostly cosmetic stuff, and eventually new siding and a roof, but it has a view of the lake and it's bigger!)

I was telling a friend the other day that the only rooms I wouldn't touch as far as changing would probably be the garage and the laundry room! haha, so needless to say, it's going to be a lot of work, over a span of years. Yikes.  But, that's home ownership!


  1. It's perfect for you guys and it will be so cute when you're done with it! Congrats!

  2. Congrats, Melissa! I love the view of the lake!
