Unless the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain who build it.
We bought a new home! Not exactly new... it's almost 70 yrs old, actually. But new to us. Built in '39 right at the cusp of WWII. It's in a quaint little neighborhood. We like the old time sidewalks and gigantic trees - but most of all, the central location. But we won't move into it for at least a year . . . and we (or others, I should say) will be renovating it. It needs quite a bit of TLC. All handymen and carpenters, please apply. . .
and if you are searching for a place in Austin, these guys are the best. A very unique realtor experience... they are truly one of a kind.
Here's a couple shots of our "old school" home :) Maybe we'll put the renovation photos on our blog next year to witness the transformation....
