The Wait Is Finally Over!

Well, I’m so happy to FINALLY be able to spill the beans about the exciting project we’ve been working on but first let me take you back to February

This story actually began about a year ago when we had decided that our little cabin really needed more work than we could justify and we began to search for a new home. We looked at a couple but didn’t find one that ‘felt right’ although one of them really came close it just wasn’t in our price range at the time.

Here are a couple of pics from some of the projects that we had done to try to make our little cabin function better:

You can read more about ways that we made our little cabin function for us HERE.

Fast forward to February when we really set our minds to finding our new home… we went to a couple of different mobile home dealers and of course, they had some very nice homes but they were way out of the price range we had already agreed to… we didn’t want to stretch ourselves too thin.

We felt a little discouraged but we had FAITH that something would pop up… when it was meant to be. This led us to another dealership which was a little closer to us. Mr. Awesome sent me to scope things out as he really didn’t want to waste any more time looking… he was pretty tired of ‘looking‘.

As it turns out our search was over… or at least we thought so.

I had looked at 3 or 4 homes but there was one that just had that feeling… I mean I can still feel the butterflies thinking about how I felt when I first walked into that house. It wasn’t new… in fact, it was built in 1994… but it was pretty close to what we had in mind for ‘the perfect home’. They had a few others that would work but this just felt like ‘the one‘.

I immediately called Mr. Awesome and let him know that they had some potential houses that he needed to look at. We went the next day and filled out all the paperwork. We were not approved but we didn’t give up… until we had pretty much exhausted all of our options… except one.

I won’t lie… this whole process really got me down and I was so disappointed.

Nothing is impossible with GOD

Things always seem to happen when you least expect them and when you truly hand them over to GOD and let HIM handle them. A few months later we happened to be at a dinner with some family members when the house discussion came up.

I showed them some pictures of the house we had found and we both talked about how much we had liked that house. Of course, the questions came up as to why we hadn’t jumped on it and grabbed it so we had to explain all the details. Then they offered to help us… just remembering that moment makes me cry.

I really thought there was no way that our house would still be there, I mean it was so ‘perfect‘ I was sure that someone else had already snatched it up. We happened to drive past the dealer a few days later and I noticed one of the other houses (which was newer and in better shape) was still there so Mr. Awesome phoned our contact and found out that ‘our house‘ was indeed still AVAILABLE.

We got to work on the new paperwork and we were APPROVED! Lordy… this post has really turned into a tear-jerker for me! Our dreams seemed to be within reach now and we were so EXCITED but we remained cautiously optimistic. We only told a few people and we regret telling some of them but that’s another story along with many other house stories to come!

We have had so many ups and downs since the approval, I’ll begin posting about some of them soon, but today it finally became OFFICIAL!

WE ARE GETTING A HOUSE!!!!!

WE ARE GETTING A HOUSE!!!!!

WE ARE GETTING A HOUSE!!!!!

Although the past few months have been quite an emotional roller coaster, this week has been even more so because things are finally coming together and it doesn’t seem real. We’ve spoken with our ‘project manager‘ who is AWESOME. She has really helped to relieve some of our worries and we are so excited to be working with her.

I’ve really been quite exhausted with this whole process and I was so ready to just throw my hands up in the air but I know GOD has a plan and HIS plan will be revealed in HIS timing… when HE knows the TIME is RIGHT.

So right now I am thanking GOD with all of my heart, and I thank EVERYONE who has helped us get to this point. We really can’t wait to see what the future holds and we can’t wait to get moved into our new house so we can make it a HOME!

Be sure to like and follow our blog and our Facebook page as we will be trying to post some videos of the progress! I’m sure we will also be posting lots of before/after pics as well!

Here are a few pics of our new home:

This post had been scheduled for Friday as our closing was set for early Friday morning but as luck would have it we didn’t get to close Friday because of a miscommunication. Then this morning things were delayed because of another miscommunication!!! We are so happy to get this part over so that we can start this new chapter in our lives!

Thank you all for being a part of it!
