Our First Home

This was our first home. It was a brand new, builder basic 2 story, but it was perfect for a first time home owner. Looking back we were a little crazy because I bought it while I was actually in my final semester of University at Cal State. I knew the market was getting pretty expensive and basically every house for sale had multiple offers on it so I had to act fast when one popped up. My mom actually found it in the newspaper classifieds, took a quick peek at it and I bought it sight unseen directly from the seller. We're definitely not brave enough to try that again. My very first time seeing the house was the day I moved in.

This house was much smaller and it felt a little more cottage-y, so we rolled with that.

We updated the kitchen on a budget of about $400, click here to see the transformation and click here for the tutorial on how to make your own hood vent cover.
