Well, we bought a fixer upper! ….& it’s right next door to my parents! I never thought either of those things would come out of my mouth, but we have quickly learned to never say never;) In the week since we closed, it has already been such a blessing being next to my parents. They have helped so much with yard work (we come over everyday and more is done), my dad comes over to answer any questions about the house, and Lucy has a built in babysitter….It’s the BEST.
We have an entire renovation ahead of us, and not one single fixture is staying in this house. Nada. It’s overwhelming to think about, but so exciting because we get to pick out every last thing we put into it! I can’t wait to make it our own, and make it a home that we bring more Albert babies into. The first thing to go is the roof, it’s in terrible shape…..so terrible that we had to pay cash for the house, because the bank wouldn’t lend on a roof this bad! Shane is working on the roof as I type this, and I can’t wait to see the finished product! Be sure to follow me on Instagram @maryssaalbert for plenty of updates in real time, before they hit the blog;)
There are a few before pictures of the house down below, and I’ll be sharing here every step of the way. We are hoping to be finished with the house by Thanksgiving-ish, but Shane works full time….so we we’ll see what happens! Cross your fingers! I shared a few before pictures down below, but make sure you are subscribed to my blog (on the right sidebar>>>>) so you don’t miss a thing! Wish us luck! XO.
