We just made an offer on a house that we know is also getting several other offers. I will have a decent kitchen for the first time in over twenty years.
Not to mention all of the other plusses. There are very few houses which fall in our price range so I am pr##ing that our offer is the one that is accepted. We bid way, I mean way over the asking price. So for all of you who are often busy on Sunday mornings you know what to do. I can't say here because of the site rules, but you know what to do. The bank will get our offer tomorrow and will consider it along with all of the others.
The kitchen has tons of cupboards. It's and old fashioned farm house with cupboards all the way to the ceiling. I actually took a step stool to the house to see if I could reach the top cupboards. I can just barely reach. If anything is pushed too far back I will have to get a taller step stool or stand on the counter.
In the basement there are two whole racks of shelving that I can use for my canning jars and there is room in the kitchen for more cupboards if I choose to buy them and of course I will. You can get cupboards for a song at the Habitat for Humanity store near us.
There is also a lovely formal dining room where I will actually be able to entertain guests and not have them trapped against the wall for the whole of the dinner hour.
If we get the house I will have to learn how to post pictures on this site. I only took 71 pictures today.
