We bought the worst house on the best block
We were not looking to immediately buy a home in North County. The idea was to rent a property for 1-2 years whilst getting our bearings in suburbia (which we now refer to as just “coastal”). That all changed when we found the most absolutely, perfect neighborhood for us and our family; I’m talking Norman Rockwell/Pinterest board people that love wine. I mean, not to completely brag, but our neighbors are ridiculously cool, our kids are all about the same age and pretty much everyone is totally adorable. My Mother says I get too excited about things and tend to set expectations too high, but we’re 2 years into the best street in ‘merica and so far, so good! Alas, I did mention we bought the worst house on the block. It’s a good home with good bones but desperate for a remodel. We have a whopping one kitchen drawer, nasty bolted on fiberboard cabinets, and horrific laminate flooring that sounds like kittens walking on a chalkboard. Finally, we are ready to begin remedying our 1970’s starter home. I’ve drafted all the plans and elevations and have my finishes and appliances ready to order. We’re ready to rip the roof off this Mutha’! Prayers for tight deadlines, avoiding unforeseen expensive major things, and most importantly for avoiding a marriage counselor. Stay tuned!
