This post is far overdue but better late than never.
Craig and I put our bid in for our home the evening of July 4th. (As I posted before, this was a bitter-sweet decision for me.) We can’t thank our realtor (Lora) enough for working so late that night to get our bid in, which would eventually be accepted. (We highly recommend Lora if you are looking to buy or sell a home in the Anchorage area!)
We moved into our home about six weeks later, and spent the whole weekend unpacking and organizing. Now that we’ve settled in, it is time for a tour.
When you first walk into our home, the living room is situated off to the right. We love all the windows and the vaulted ceilings.
We have an old, broken couch that we want to replace that sits along the one wall. This is Sadie’s bed. She sleeps here at night and spends her time during the day napping on the couch as well. Good thing I don’t care about the couch too much.
I love the fireplace and focal point of the living room. Eventually we would like to replace it with a gas fireplace since the wood-burning fireplace is pretty inefficient. We negotiated with the seller to leave the mirror for us.
On the opposite wall of the couch we have our big, bulky box TV in a entertainment center I bought at a garage sale while in college. (Eventually we want to replace both of those items as well.) It does its job for the time being. In the corner, our (kind of) Charlie Brown Christmas tree, harvested in the woods of Alaska.
And that concludes the tour of our home. Craig and I have loved owning our own home. Sure we’ve had issues such as a pipe breaking at 10:00 p.m., but it sure beats renting a dumpy apartment. We enjoy coming home to a real house and having space!
