We became homeowners today. Neither of us believed it was actually going to happen until it actually did considering all the let downs we've experienced in this long process. I'm extremely excited to get the keys this afternoon.

The house was built in 1925 and this photo was taken for the home's property card in 1958. I have to thank Christopher over at Cleveland Area History for finding this image for us. It's really awesome to see the house in it's near-original condition. Unfortunately all those trees have disappeared since then, the doorway has been remodeled, and we no longer have wood shingles. Nothing inside of the house appears to have been updated since the 60s or 70s. The house sits in a historical district and it's really inspiring to see how most of the other historical homes in the neighborhood have been maintained in such a nice way. We have a lot of work ahead of us, but I'm really looking forward to it.
