Monday March 8, 2010-We Have a House!

Thanks to Anonymous for the comment about Rideau Heights Campsite here in the city. We know it well and have stayed there often but that wouldn't solve our problem.

Anyway, today was a busy day. We met with the mortgage broker, got that taken care of, saw the house, made the offer, signed the paperwork and are I just received the phone call from the realtor that our offer was accepted! So, subject to various conditions, we are homeowners again.

Here are some interior photos that Gordon took today. Some of the wallpaper is pretty scary but that's an easy fix.


Dining Room

Kitchen - this is probably what sold me on the house

Living Room

Bedroom - this is where the scary wallpaper comes in


  1. Very nice! We assume the furniture is not part of the sell. We know you and Gordon will enjoyu.

  2. I know you will enjoy your new home. It is lovely.

  3. Looks very nice and cozy. I hope the purchase goes through without a hitch.

  4. I love it! Look at all the room in the kitchen. And no more emptying waste tanks - YEE HAW!!!

  5. Sandra, congratulations!!!! The house is a beauty. Yes, I can see why the kitchen was a hit, very nice. I hope you will continue to blog. I'm so happy I got to meet you on the Texas coast. Hugs, K

  6. Looks nice Sandra!!! Enjoy it!! HUGS!

  7. CUTE house!

    and yes, the bedroom wallpaper HAS to go!

  8. WOW what a place! I'm with you there's some scary wallpaper. That place is nice!!! Just perfect for two. Wouldn't it be nice to have the furniture too.

  9. Cute house...looks like it has been updated nicely. Glad you have a view of the river. Congratulations on your new home!

  10. Sorry tp see you leaving the RV lifestyle but the house looks nice - enjoy!

  11. Congratulations on the new home. It looks great (minus that wallpaper). Great looking kitchen, too! Have fun moving in and making your own changes to it.

  12. Looks very cozy to me.....AL

  13. Congratulations to you and Gordon. It's a nice looking home. I'm sure you're excited about getting the closing behind you. Take care and enjoy.

  14. Perfect (well, almost, but you can fix that wallpaper easypeasy!). Congratulations!!!

    Are you getting it furnished? That's actually how we got the Park Model we're living in now -- but I assume not in a house?

    Either way it looks like a great find. I am glad for you.

    Wow, I think the house is great! I love it. When can I move in????


  16. Lovely house, and big kitchen, I know you will enjoy it.

    My only comments are, that the dishwasher being on the other side of the kitchen from the sink is very awkward.
    My friend's kitchen is that way, as the dishwasher was an after thought. Also she can't run the hot faucet to get hot water into the dishwasher right away.

    Please keep a non-skid rug in the aisle, as that floor will be slippery when you are transferring dishes from the sink to the dishwasher.

    Also the dishwasher water and soap are supposed to keep the garbage disposal clean, which it can't do.

    Happy Trails, Penny, TX

  17. Penny, garbage disposals aren't the norm up here so that won't be a problem. I'll certainly think about putting a non slip rug on the ceramic tile though!

  18. Looks like a great place to live. I hope you enjoy it for years to come.
    I'll miss your RVing blog, bye bye for now.
