Our Journey to a Mortgage Free Home ... #4

In the last entry I left you with this description of the house we purchased to move on our now cleared lot ...

Just you wait to see what we moved onto this nice clear lot ... I can't tell you how many people questioned our sanity when they saw it!!!  If I had been them, I would have too!!!

Here are a few hints:

it was old (built in 1932) ...

it had been a house and had served as a church at different times ...

it had a huge hole in the roof ...

it had a big hole in the floor directly under the huge hole in the roof ...

it had no inside walls, only studs ...

it was home to many creatures ...

it was full of trash (this is an under statement) ...

it had been neglected for lots of years ...

it had been used for storage for all of those 'lots of years' (You know the kind of storage where you just open the door and throw it in?)

the structure was sound ...

it was what we could pay cash for ...

Are you ready to see what I was talking about???

It's okay if you 'think we were crazy too, plenty of people did' ....

Just feast your eyes on this beauty .....


(above) ... the front ....


the back ....


one end ...



the other end!

Go ahead, feel free to laugh ... (Looking back, all I can say is that we were determined, we had a goal and we were not going to be deterred!)

Through laughing?  

It does look pretty bad doesn't it?  Go ahead, you can say it, you won't hurt my feelings!  

Okay, now you've seen the outside, want to take a look on the inside?

We will ... in the next entry!
