For nearly one full year my wife and I have been looking for a new place to live.
We have lived in the same home for nearly twenty one years now and are looking for a fresh start.
We also are now an empty nest since our youngest just went off to college so we were hoping to downsize. Our realtor would take us to tons of places around the state but none of them seemed to be the right fit. Then one day as we were driving out to see a house, we ended up driving by a beautiful farm house in the country that seemed to be abandoned. For some reason I knew right in that moment it was the home we needed. Upon further inspection of the home it was clear in had been abandoned for years. The heating and cooling unit installed was at least 30 years old and hadn’t had a proper HVAC repair check in years. There was also tons of damage to the walls and windows due to the home being abandoned for so long. Even with all of the problems, we decided to buy the property and take on the project. After months of sweat hard work, we are finally able to move into our new home. We had our buddy who works at the HVAC heating and cooling company replace the heating and cooling unit, and nearly everything else we fixed with our bare hands. We now are lucky enough to have the home of our dreams. On top of that, due to the property being abandoned before we bought it we have tons of money left over even after all of the repairs! I can’t wait until all of the kids come back home and see the new place!
