The A&W House is Now Home

So.... where do i start with this labor of love? We became interested in this home last fall after hearing it was going into foreclosure. We contacted a realtor and took a look at this massive, early 1970's home... and somehow... fell in love with it!

We put the first offer on it in October of 2008 and the real estate agent assured us that we would be in by Thanksgiving. Well, we weren't even moved in by this thanksgiving... 2009!!! After a long eight months we finally got the call... "You were the highest bidder, the house is yours!" We closed on the house in May of 2009 and just moved in the first week of December.

The A&W house is dubbed so due to it's most creative exterior. I did my best to rectify this color scheme with a handy hammer and a ladder. Caleb was nervous but I accomplished what I wanted!

Many renovations inside have began since we closed on the property in May. I am so excited to be living here and more than anything, I love calling it home.
