We're buying a house. It's here in Waco, in the same neighborhood as our church and most of our church people. We moved to Waco to be actively involved in this church, and now I guess it seems we plan to stick around for a while. We're glad about this. It feels right. We look forward to intentionally sharing life with Hope Fellowship for years to come. We look forward to opening up our home and inviting others in; we look forward to loving our neighbors and sharing life with them. The neighborhood isn't glamorous. In fact, it's pretty far from suburbia. But we love it!
Our house is simple. Old (built in 1915). Beautiful. And ours (almost). It is in the process of being completely rehabed. All of the projects are nearing completion, and our closing date is set for March 31. That's in 16 days. We went to check on things last night, and they were laying carpet in the bedrooms (all other flooring has already been done); there was sod in the driveway, waiting to find its home in our yard. Fence posts have gone up in the backyard, and appliances are now in the kitchen. It should be finished any day now.
And without further ado, here it is...
Isn't it fun? The front door hasn't yet been painted, but it will be red.
Here are the living/dining rooms prior to interior paint:
And here they are after...
More pictures to come later, once we get our stuff moved in. I will especially need to post pictures of the little one's oh-so-purple bedroom. She picked out the color herself, and it looks great!
