Anyways, the interesting thing about buying a house, or at least buying THIS house (maybe your experience was different) is that EVERYONE is really apprehensive to just come out and say "you are buying a house." There are so many pitfalls, hurdles and things that could go wrong throughout the whole process right up until the close date that NO ONE wants to say "this is your house."
So...we looked at a ton of houses, and I didn't feel like we were buying a house.
We picked one out, and I didn't feel like we were buying a house
We got approved for a loan, and I still didn't feel like we were buying a house.
We got a lawyer to check things over...still not buying a house.
I don't know if this is some sort of conspiracy by the housing industry or what. Like they want this big reveal at the end "You are a home owner...here are the keys!" which I've seen happen on many, many home buying shows.
They need to stop making it such a production, and really get you on board. If you want to see me be engaged in the house buying process or give a care what color the walls are or if the layout of the house is like, then make me feel like this is MY house...not some potential thing that maybe someday I could be staying in for 30 years or more.
Alright...enough babble...pictures below. There's nothing new here if you already have seen pictures from Kendle, but if you are on MY side of the table, you haven't seen these. Now you can:

So who mows that parkway is your next question, right? My 50 dollars a year mows it, that's who.
Anyways, when we get settled in (IF we get the house...cause you know a butterfly could flap it's wings in Evenston causing a train to run late, making a key member of our team not make it to closing...or something), you all should feel free to invite yourselves over. Free room and board at the Hunka house, and a quick train ride to downtown, so you don't have to mess with parking.
