You make it sound so easy! Were you looking for long? We have been looking since March but I guess buying a house for 1 is a lot easier than buying a house for 5 plus a dog and 2 cats!

Thanks folks. I hadn't been actively looking at all. It just sort of fell in my lap. The owner is carrying the financing at 0%, a gentleman's agreement on a handshake.

I'd been kind of keeping my eyes open for a bigger place and this just sort of came along.

I've moved most of my stuff today, just some odds and ends left to do tomorrow. I'm bushed.

The phone service is on but there's a problem with the internal wiring. I'll run a new line tomorrow, I'm too tired to care tonight. I've ordered a pizza and as soon as I eat I am going to get a nice shower in my new bathroom and see if I can unbury the bed.

I'm impressed! It took us 5 days and 600 miles of driving just to buy a used car last week.

Congratulations! Enjoy the new digs!

Good one, Mason! So are you going to rent out the old one or sell it?
