  • I think it's official....bought our first house!

    Been holding off on posting this as not to jinx it but we're buying a house in north Long Beach. Just closed escrow and waiting for the people to get out so we could start moving in. We're really stoked, our kids are going to have a back yard, we're not going to have to hide our dog from the manager any more and she's got a backyard too, we're not going to argue with the neighbors about the parking situation anymore (we got 4 cars(junkers)) and finally pay this mad rent in Venice beach to a landlord instead of investing it in ourselves. We're stoked.

        Congratulations! It's a great feeling! Make sure you do annual checks on your sewage, gutters, roof and pests and you will have a great house forever!

        PS. Neighbors can be interesting, but for the most part homeowners are pretty friendly folks!

          congrats, welcome to the never ending upgrade and repair cycle.
          Land of reveiwing bids and wondering ig the roof will make it one more year.
          Seriously though, It is nice to own and finally have a place where you are taking roots and building for your future

          congrats again

                    got internet?

                    Well, we're in the new house. Man, talk about not planning ahead. Just got my internet and cable hooked up, feel totally disconected from life. When we got here they turned off the water main but luckily I found it so I turned it back on. Did'nt have hot water for 4 days(bathed 1). And it took us a bunch of truck loads to move. Learned my lesson, ol' cheapo me trying to save a penny found out how young I'm NOT! (back still aching)
                    Next time I move I'm definately paying some company to do it. But we're really happy here in the city of Long Beach. Got alot of stuff to do but I got to find time for a trip, I deserve it . If anyone is near me don't be shy and PM me I'm new to the area and would'nt mind a little help getting settled in.

                      congrats you are in, but please stand on the other end of the room till you get a bath. I can feel for you about the moving, I hate to move so much I would rather just stay where I am at. Well, my little house isn't that bad. But we have discussed moving once, just once, the conversation went like this: Honey have you ever thought that maybe a house built in the last 100 years might be nice as we would not have to be fixing everything all the time?
                      Yea that might be nice, tell you what, you pack everything up, do all the leg work to get everything handled, rent everything we will need, book a hotel for a week as we unpack and need somewhere to stay, and I will do it.
                      Ah, boy after looking around, I love this old house. nevermind

                          Pics of the house

                          So here are the pics of the house.....

                          If we squeeze the cars together we can fit three cars in the drive way and there's room behind the gate to fit my jeep and work on it.

                          The previous owner turned the garage into a room (moms future room?) so I only have about 4 ft of actual garage space in the front. My bro in law bought me a lawn mower and weed eater too.

                            Looks good. There enough garage for the tools and work space, coverage is over rated, wife usually gets that.
