This Foreclosed House is a kind of history of our first home, purchased in 2014. As a school teacher/stay-at-home mom combo we didn’t have the money to move right into a fancy-schmancy house and with four children we’re too large to be in a “starter home”, so we made the decision to buy a potentially nice house in a nice neighborhood knowing we’d need to put some love into it. So we bought a foreclosure which has definitely been more work than we anticipated, but we’ve also had a lot of satisfaction in improving the home and remodeling it in ways that fits our family’s needs.
This blog is an account of some of the home improvement projects that we’ve been working on as well as some of our plans for the future. We hope that it is somewhat helpful to you in thinking about improvements you might make to your own home.
