Hello Everyone

My wife and I just purchased a 1760 Colonial. We just fell in love with it while realizing that it needed work. We negotiated with the seller to have them pay for initial structural repairs on the home (which is on going as I write this).

I have a blog started to document my struggles with the home. It isn't much at the moment, but over time I hope to have an insightful view into the first time home buyer perspective when living (and paying a mortgage) in an antique home.

For a when you are bored and want a read, check out the blog... .which I just realized I cannot post since I do not have 10 posts yet. When I do, I'll return to stick it in.

Haha, believe it or not, my wife was on board with this HUGE purchase. We're doing things step by step and trying not to get overwhelmed. :)
