Here she is, our little house on the crick! We bought our house 2 years ago and have been fixing her up slowly but surely, one DIY project at a time!
We live in a 3 bedroom ranch style house on 7 wooded acres with a small creek. The house was built in the golden era of 1999 builder grade. She’s a charming combination of “wasn’t built properly to begin with” and “was never maintained over 20 years”. It’s a lovely mix, really.
Let’s start with how we bought our house. My husband relocated for work and we rented a temporary house for a year. Our lease was up in three months, so we began looking at houses on land for a slower paced life. Neither my husband nor I are from the South, so we were looking for the small town Southern charm that outsiders dream about. We found exactly that with our house. There’s a tiny main street, one grocery store, and a diner where you know Miss Betty is going to be every night at 6:00. I mean the gas pumps weren’t even digital! Staring at these old gas pumps was like looking into the past, and we were charmed.READ THE POST
