We have taken the next big step and are almost at the tail end of closing on a house for us. It's a very exciting step to be taking together. We just lack one signature to officially call the house ours! The tentative closing date is Wednesday, January 25. We will see if this happens, due to a slight hitch in peeling paint on the shed. But David and a friend painted the wall in question, so it is still to be determined if we will still close on the above mentioned date.
It's a beautiful home in Tulsa that is 2 bed/2bath, formal/den living room, spacious kitchen and eating area, possible formal dining or office space, sun room, crafting/laundry room, garage with attic, huge backyard with big workshop and small shed, and an underground storm shelter. It's in a quiet older neighborhood and we couldn't be happier. It's a good starter home that we can't wait to call our own for years to come. We have even begun acquiring furniture already and have purchased a bedroom set and a couch and loveseat. Pictures soon to come.
