We bought a house!
We take possession of the new place on Aug. 16.
Peter went to see the place on Friday after we got the great news about our house.
He called me afterwards and he was so excited. This was strange because, unlike me, Peter is not very excitable. He's always very calm and rational.
Anyway, we made an offer on the house on Saturday, they made a counter-offer, we made another counter-offer, they made another counter-offer and we accepted. The last two counter-offers were made over a period of 30 minutes at 1 a.m. Ottawa time so I kept falling asleep in between Peter's calls and text messages.
I'm so grateful for Peter for finding us a home and dealing with all the house-buying logistics. He is such a hard worker. I'm so lucky to have him on my team.
The house is about an eight-minute commute from Peter's work. On the main floor, it has a kitchen, dining area, living room, bathroom and two bedrooms. Downstairs, there is an office that could be converted into a third bedroom, another bathroom and a recreation room. It has a big backyard and covered parking. Here are some photos.
The conditions on our sale are removed on Friday so please keep the prayers coming and your fingers and cat paws crossed until then.
