OT MY HOUSE!!! .....mine all mine.......not yours

I've posted about buying houses here.....so im sharing the results of your advices and all that

Heres some pics of my house

just a few weeks till closing, the guy is moved out now....need to finish up some FHA stuff and its good to move in...yay!

Garage is 1.5 deep, but i can fit the toyota and the jeep end to end in it...so i can pretend its a 4 car garage!

the yard is 2 acres.....80ftx1150ft or so......so really freak'n deep and narrow.....its got a BIG hill.......about 1 acres is woods....starts at the tree line in the pic. of the yard.....VERY STEEP in some parts.....i'm going to drive my jeep on them in the wooded part...because i can!!!! the limits of the yard (widthwise) is the fence on the left in the pic to just behind the little steel shed about midway up the yard part of the property.....to give you an idea how narrow it is

the house was Ultra-cheap because its old and needs some work....but being an unmarried 24 yr old who lived the last 4 years in a fraternity house....i have no standards! bwhahahaha...its actually not that bad and i think i can make it really nice with a little work.

in the back yard in front of the deck thing on the garage, there used to be a pool.....so now its just a big cirlce of sand......so im going to make a nice stone/brick/whatever Firepit for some summer festivities!

it also has a good front porch for hang'n out......

I'm Pumped!

Congrats! Buying a home a great investment. You will probably have the same deal with the bank that most of us have ...... As long as we make the monthly payments, they will let us pay the taxes too.
Oh yea, what is that white stuff on the ground?

COOOOOOOL not only does your garage have an attic, but you can walk out of it and sit on the deck for think sessions while your thumb heals and the beer drives the pain away!!! (I think I have been working on the cj a bit to much lately.)

Re: OT MY HOUSE!!! .....mine all mine.......not y

Im Jealous......but then again, I don't have to worry about cold weather.....If it gets down for 40, thats a cold snap.....
But still, I would love to have a garage like that.....
Congrats my man.....and at 24?....your ahead of the game.....

A little advice....

Keep every recept of anything you spend on the house....It becomes a tax deduction if you ever sell the house.
1st Tool should be a shop vac with 2" hose.....you will find more uses for it than you can imagine.
Power tools (of the house type)...buy an 18V cordless kit that includes a drill, sawzall, circular saw...etc. You will use these on the house more than you think...and on the jeep.
Permits - Make sure you get them for the items that require it.....the end result is that you will know it is done right and if you ever sell the house, you won't have any hassels.
Take your time....you will have plenty of it.

Enjoy

Congrads on the house. I am about the same age as you are, and I respect your drive to own your own home. I hope to make the jump soon. I respect you, and good on you for having your own garage... Man I dislike working in the driveway in the winter....

Congrads again.

Re: OT MY HOUSE!!! .....mine all mine.......not yours

Very cool, looks like a cool old house and a pretty quiet location, just remember to invite your neighbors over for that first fire pit party and fill 'em full of beer so they will excuse those late night and early morning wrenching sessions with loud air tools, saws and stuff [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
