movin' on up!

guess who's moving?

(three guesses and your first 2 don't count...)

this MAY have something to do with my last post about our stupid neighbors, but it also have more to do with keeping Mr. KK's late grandmother's house in the family, and reducing our mortgage a bit while we're at it.

so the plan is to buy his grandmother's house that needs A LOT of work. we're thinking we'll try and sell our house and move in the fall sometime.

all of this work with the new house includes giving me my dream kitchen (finally!) and a nice open layout that's perfect for entertaining.

the downside is that i'm really going to miss our current house (neighbors aside). i LOVE our house because it's old and has charm and glass doorknobs and built-ins and wide moldings and a perfect yard.

but, it's time to move on. it's in the next town over where we grew up with cheaper taxes, a smaller mortgage and 1.7 acres of land.

and while i promise not to turn this blog into a satellite HGTV site, I will keep you all posted with before and after pictures and all that good stuff.

i feel i'm about to embark on a journey that will make me intimately involved in tile, cabinetry and paint chips. and i can't wait.

i get the first swing with the sledgehammer!

Ooh, fun! I love HGTV, so bring on the pictures! hehe. That's great that you get to make the house what you want it, and have a lower mortgage to boot! =)

That's great news! And I, for one, LOVE home renovation projects so bring on the photos! I should mention that I especially love when it's someone else's project and am relieved ours is finally (pretty much) over. Now I can live vicariously through yours!

I'm excited for you guys! It sounds like a great opportunity to redo the house just the way you want it. I love HGTV! Before and after pics will be fun!
