We did it! We closed on the house yesterday. We are now the proud owners of Matilda! (Karl is posting on the blog in the next few days; I’ll let him explain the name, which I love.)
Our one-year wedding anniversary is in two weeks, so Karl joked that he bought me a
house pile of bricks. But, as I reminded him, technically I bought the house with my life savings; he’s buying the renovations with his. (Hahaha…. that’s because he was a better saver.) That just makes us a great team!
The final bill: $34,359.99 + $1,500 escrow = $35,859.99
