Papers are signed, boxes are packed, and we are ready to move into our new (old) house:
The house is "new" to us, but it's actually much older than anyone in my family -- built in 1914 and lovingly maintained for the past 98 years. We are the fifth owners.
There's a long story about how we ended up getting this house, but I'll give you the short version. This house never went on the market. We heard through a good friend that the house was going to be for sale, and our realtor started knocking on the door until they finally showed it to us. We loved the space and the flow of the rooms, the original hardwood floors and all the amazing windows everywhere. It's on one of my favorite streets in all of Dallas, and we already know many of our new neighbors.
I'll post more photos as we begin to make it our own, but for now, I'll leave you with one more photo of my favorite feature: the screened porch.
Move in day is tomorrow. Stay tuned!
