We got........

 Well, we got the house!!!! The couple accepted our offer of $15,000 less than asking price plus $6,000 in closing costs! Our loan has been processed and today Matt will be at the house for our inspection which should be no problem since the house is newer. One thing I know I will love about Columbus is the trees and how green everything is.........
 Here is the entryway (minus the stain glass over the door)......off the entry way is a office with french doors and a formal dining room with a huge window looking out front............
 I LOVE white kitchens....I was very picky I told our realtor I would only pick a home if it had white cabinets or very very dark cabinets.....no oak or light wood. The back plash has flowers and the knobs on the cabinets are also flowers and we plan on changing both. (And the owner loved stained glass hence the weird thing hanging on the wall) I love the black granite and I am excited about new stainless appliances and the bar!!!
 I love that the window has a ledge so I can grow herbs!! I want to find out if the home is ran for gas and if it is we are gonna get a gas range....the new double oven/oven ones! (look em up they rock)
 The house is really a blank canvas the couple barely did anything.......the bottom floor has white carpet and grey tile in the kitchen so....the deal I made with Matt when we picked this one is....First thing we are doing is ripping everything out on the bottom floor and putting in dark dark wood floors!! I think the dark against the white kitchen and trim will bring this house into a more modern look! YAY!
 This is our breakfast nook with french doors that lead to the patio......the home has 2 1/2 baths, 3 bedrooms, office, formal dining, open loft upstairs and a finished basement!!! Our lot is almost an acre!
 Living room................ not sure what we will paint the rooms, but it will be fun making it our own. Weird thing is I didn't take any pictures of the master bedroom or bathroom!?
 The is the upstairs open loft and off this is the 2 guest rooms and full bath....I think our cat will love this room, I can see her in the beam of sun already!
 Imagine it with dark wood floors....................... (ya, I know I already said it hahah, I am excited)
 The couple put over $15,000 into finishing the basement and behind that door is still a HUGE unfinished basement for storage! So.....since there is a strip of red we are going to paint all this wood white and eventually our red living room set will go down here and be a casual OU room! It also has a wet bar down here!
 The master bedroom, 1/2 bath and huge laundry room are off that hallway you see on the left! We are gonna turn the laundry room into a partial mud room and since we sold all appliances with our Okc home we got new front loaders!!
 LOOK!!!!!! The house comes with an awesome Koi Pond, I am kinda excited about it! I will just need to learn how to take care of it.....wonder what my boys will think of this! HA!
 And here is the real gem......look at this backyard, we love it!!! The bad news??? No fence, so we literally will have to have a team come in while we are "en route" to put up a fence for our dogs. And oddly, we are only allowed a 4 foot fence?! Apparently 6 foot fences are an Oklahoma thing?
 Here is our street......I love the wide streets, trees and clean neighborhood!
 And we are the corner lot..................
So .....there is it! I will be excited to show you before and afters down the road. I am just excited that I will be able to focus on making this house a home and a place where friends and family can visit. I think this will help me transition to a new place.

Wow! It is absolutely stunning and I can't wait to see what you do once you get in there! Congrats, Nicole! You deserve every inch, it is beautiful!

Congrats! that house looks awesome! I'm super jealous :) As far as the fences, I know there are a lot of neighborhoods that only allow fences that are a certain height because or else it can be considered "un-neighborly" or something. So glad it worked out for you!
