So we are all packed up and move over the mountain and through the woods to Overbrooke Forest. We have always loved the privacy of this subdivision and couldn't resist this beautiful foreclosed home that sits on over an acre lot surrounded by trees and wildlife. It was quite the challenge to seal the deal; it took aver 4 months to finalize the details and over 6 months to get moved in. A year later we still love the subdivision and have been blessed to get another set of terrific neighbors whom have also become dear friends. As far as the house and myself are concerned...I'm so over it. Its a great house and I feel we made a good investment, its nice having all my clothes stored in one closet instead of 3, it's fabulous having more than one shower, and I truly love watching the boys run and play in the wide open space. However, there are things I really miss... old neighbors, cleaning the floors by hand, the Koi pond, a front porch, and the weeping willow I planted in memory of my Dad. I do have plans to plant a Willow tree here. I hope to one day return to a much smaller house; keeping a large house clean is for the birds! I've lost the outside pics and the before and after pictures. I will post those eventually! Oh yeah, I almost forgot...buying a foreclosed house shouldn't be taken lightly!
They could not wait to use the "big jacuzzi tub." (me either)
