Bought a house in January. Took me a while to get off my lazy ass and take pics. Here they be!

Jones Home 2009

Enjoy it while it lasts, it won't be that color for long. And that front door is getting replaced this year. Probably gonna get new windows...eventually finish the basement (no pics because it's just a mess)...the half of the backyard between the playset and the fence is all going to get woodchipped eventually...

Yeah, lots of shit I'm gonna do to this house. Thankfully I have very nice neighbors and my parents live about four minutes via car (just drive down the block and take a left) so they can help out.

That is fantastic!! Great looking house.

I will be a regular in this thread soon enough, I've been house shopping for a little over a month, and I believe I may have finally picked a place to settle down as of last weekend. It's exciting stuff! I can't wait to gtf out of this apartment, too.

Cool, looks good. :)

Anybody want to buy a house in Lisbon, IA (outside of Cedar Rapids)? It doesn't smell like stale dog pee too bad, and it only takes 2 afternoons to mow the potato-chip-shaped lawn every week, and the wooden retaining walls should last through the rest of May.

So, what you're saying is, we know where a future MWS 3 meet-up will be? You can't blow us off if it's happening at your place! ;)

you will die of sodium poisoning before you ever take me with enough grains of salt.


Perhaps the same can be said of all birth control. But enough posting- have at you!

The Shizz is getting older. Threads about being daddies, getting houses, pretty soon somebody will probably make a thread about dying.

I want to own a home. A house that's not connected to other people through the walls - not an apartment / townhouse. I feel like I've never been able to let myself go on piano... I'd probably get a lot more done that way.
So my plan right now is:
find different job = more money
money = save up for down payment as best I can
> get house
> get dog
> start real family
