Done Deal!

This Old HouseLast Friday, July 14, 2006, we bought our first old house--almost 100 years old--two stories, eight rooms, 3000 square feet, complete with an old servants' house and a one-holer outhouse in the backyard. According to my dad, back in the day, folks who didn't have a two-holer and a Sears and Roebuck catalog to pass the time were poor. The previous owner has done much to renovate it: new wiring, new plumbing, security system, new kitchen, siding, etc. A few rooms are almost, but not quite finished. Others need work, and some have never been touched. No one has made major improvements to the house for 50 years, except for the roof courtesy of Hurricane Hugo, and she had to do things like have sinks removed from the bedrooms!

We hope to share pictures and our journey as we get our house ready for the big move.
