The House Strikes Back

Our Homeownership Saga


We are first time homeowners who were lucky enough to buy in while the prices were very low. We got got ourselves a modest sized, 1906 home with some great personality. It’s not a big house, but it fits all of our stuff just fine.

Before we even bought the place, we knew it would need repairs. As is expected, so far they have all taken longer then anticipated. We want to share with all of you the ups and downs, triumphs and failures, joys and regrets, of our homeowner-ship journey.

For those of you who don’t own a home yet, I hope you enjoy living vicariously through our stories. For those of you who already own a home, we are thrilled to join your group. We’re sure many of you will just nod along at our sob stories and maybe laugh a little at our expense. Enjoy!
