Our New House!

Nanu and I just closed on a house in Carbondale! Yes, we just signed all the numerous bank papers and legal documents and are now the proud owners of a home. Yippeee!

It's been this top secret thing ever since we saw it and fell in love with it sometime ago. Since we havent had much luck with houses as you know from my previous posts - here and here - we decided to keep a lid on our excitement levels, until we were sure we were indeed buying the place.

It's a darling three bedroom ranch style home with a brick facade and a fenced in garden at the back. Its so much bigger and lovelier than the rented place we currently stay at and I just cant wait to move in.

We've already picked up a washer, dryer and a fridge and they will be delivered next week to our new home. We plan to move next weekend and will get started with packing now. The house is in great condition, though we do want to do a remodel of the kitchen. But since we are broke now, that will have to wait for a couple of months!

Oh this is so exciting! We should be all settled into the new house in the next 2-3 weeks. I hope Pico, Motu and Billu like it there.

So the question of the moment is: Who wants to come for our housewarming party?

Wow this is so cool. Good for you! Does this mean you will be in Carbondale awhile??

When is the housewarming? Fun fun fun!!!

poornima said...

No idea when the housewarming will be - perhaps in about a month's time. You think you can come down? That will be so fun! Nanu's always crying about how much he misses the old B-Town days and the gang!
You should see our rental house now. Its filled with boxes and packing material. We will be shifting Saturday. Cant wait for Saturday to come!
