It has taken me some time to wrap my mind around this move. I had many moments of "This is crazy, we just moved to Houston, I've made awesome friends, I got an awesome job, and now you want me to move AGAIN? You must be out of your mind, Cody, if you think I am just going to pack up all of our stuff and move AGAIN!!" (yes, that's how my brain works sometimes).
But, all that aside, I have really enjoyed starting the house hunting process again! Real estate is one of the great loves of my life and it is so fun to check out real estate in a new city. I found an awesome website (http://www.cbgundaker.com/) and got right to work checking out different areas. I am also a Google-aholic, and the map portion is so helpful because once I found a house I liked, I would Google Map the address and pan up and down the street to see how it looked. Oh, technology! Gotta love it.
Anyway, so we went house hunting last weekend. This is the one I fell in love with. It is an old church, renovated into individual condos and it. is. so. flipping. cool!!! It's in an awesome, historic neighborhood called Lafayette Square. All of the homes are old and unique, which I love. And this 'house' fits right in!
Here is is from the outside.
One of the best things about it is it sits right on a really cute park.
This is the landing area. I wish I would have gotten a better picutre of the stairs because they were amazing. Oh well.
Dining area at the top of the stairs.
Living area. First thing to change- that green paint.
The master aka favorite room in the house. LOOK at that amazing window!!
Now, I TOTALLY understand that this isn't everyone's cup of tea. But, I LOVE it! Living in a re-purposed church is something most people will probably never do.
What do you think? Are we crazy? Keep your fingers crossed that all goes smoothly, please!
