Mobile Home Sweet Home
In one of my nightly real estate searches (it’s a sickness), I ran across this estate sale. I immediately texted our friend and realtor-extradorinaire Lucas. We met him at the house and upon pulling up, he tactfully says, “well, it’s the nicest mobile home I’ve ever seen”. I want to assure you I’ve checked, and there is a basement and foundation. We did not purchase a mobile home, however it looks so much like one we’ve dubbed it ‘the double-wide’. Rest assured I have plans to change the front and roofline friends! Until then, our new neighbors will have to live with this beauty.

In order to properly introduce you all to our
fabulous new house new money pit, we thought we’d show you the house and our family on closing day! Who doesn’t love a good before and after shot? Plus I wanted to document our youthfulness before beginning this project – I’m sure the after picture will include not only a fabulous house, but lots more grey hair and wrinkles (you can determine which goes on which). So here is the cheesy “We bought a HOUSE!!” shot, complete with family pet. Nothing says ‘you’ve arrived’ more than your first mobile home. More about that later.
