Our plans to build have recently fallen through because of the fact that we currently can’t get a building loan. With the economy as low as it is, banks are being very cautious as to what loans they give out and apparently building loans are one of them. It was very sad for us because we had been so hopeful but the Lord is so good! Only a few days after we found out that we could not get a loan, we were asked by a local pastor if we would be interested in buying their beautiful house. Of course we thought that there would be no way we could afford it but the owners were so desperate to get rid of it, they offered us a KILLER DEAL! It was one that we could not pass up so we called up the bank to see if we could possibly get a loan for it. After spending a few minutes on the phone with our loan adviser, she told us that we were pre-approved for the loan! It was such an answer to prayers! Not only do we now (almost) own a house but we are also able to keep our land due to the fact that our monthly payments are going to be low enough! Praise the Lord! We will hopefully be moving into our new home sometime in November and I am so ready!

Here are the details on the house. It is a 3,483 sq. ft. home in Rosita. Built in 2005, 4 bedroom, 3 bath, finished 2-car garage, walnut hardwood floors, luxury carpet, patina stamped concrete floors (in the basement), hand-textured earth-tone walls with contrasting high-gloss, white baseboard & trim. Above the sitting room there is a large loft. There is a large deck off of the kitchen/dining room facing the mountains as well as a concrete patio that you can walk out to from the basement/garage. Custom cabinets in the kitchen and baths complement the historical motif. Thoughtful attention to detail is evident throughout.

Here are a few pictures of our new home. I will obviously post some more once we are moved in and have added our own personal touch. I have lots of painting that I want to do and I am going to be giving the kitchen a little bit of a make-over. Other than that, the changes we make will be later on down the road!


Here is a front shot of the house. There is a lot of beautiful landscaping out front.


This is a picture taken from the loft looking down into the kitchen/dining room/sitting area. We are for sure going to change the look of the cupboards.


Here is a picture looking out from the kitchen toward the dining room/entry way.


This is part of the loft. You can see the kitchen wall down below.


This is the master bedroom. I am definitely going to be giving this room some color! :)


Here is a picture of the basement living room. You can see the door to the garage as well as a door to the bathroom.


And finally, here is part of the deck. We will definitely need to refinish the deck but that will have to wait until next spring.

Well, there you have it! Those are just a few pictures of the house. Apart from what you have seen, there is also a master bath with a whirlpool tub, a full guest bath, and two other bedrooms down the hall on the main floor. In the basement there is a bedroom as well as another full bathroom and the laundry room. In the basement living room there is a propane stove as well. The garage is very large with a work area and it is finished! We also share property lines with a huge park that is just beautiful! If you have any questions, feel free to let me know! I will keep you updated!
