It's official.. the papers are filed and recorded and I now owe more money than I could make in enough years to be sickening, but hey.. she's mine!



The celebration beer is being readied as we speak!

Now let's see.. gotta pack, gotta paint, gotta build a gate, gotta find a handyman, etc... oh boy!

Drew, I don't think this is what they mean by going green...

I keed. Congratulations!!!  Get ready for the honey-do list. It grows exponentially.
My list inspires me to brew. Every time I get the urge to do some things on the list. I
drink a few beers until the urge passes.  ;D 8)

Congrats, buddy!  Picket fence and everything.  Even a fireplace, judging by the chimney.  Enjoy!

Way to go Drew. It's almost like you're an adult or something. ;)
Beer is like porn. You can buy it, but it's more fun to make your own.

Guess it'll have to be some sort of Irish Ale, huh?

Yeah really John Deere green is great. Hope you are just gonna paint the trim John Deere yellow.  Grow some more Forsythia in front  too. Get some pics with you on a driving mower in the front and sell them to John Deere. or just hang them in your study.

Congratulations.

I personally cant wait to be a renter again.

Dont hire a handyman. Get used to doing things your self. There is a wealth of info and answers you could get just from the members on this forum I bet.

Just out of curiosity how man guest rooms in there?

The celebration beer is actually going to be a 30 year Old Ale (ala Hardy's) - aka Mortgage Killer.

And yeah, the green.. I have a feeling that'll get changed at some point, but since it's nice new paint, I think it'll stay for now. :)

Let's see... on the house itself: 1925 Craftsman Bungalow - 2br, 1 bath - batchelder fireplace, detached single car garage (er brewery), guest house with a kitchenette and bathroom with shower, the roof, furnace, a/c and copper plumbing are 3 years old. I actually have a cellar in the joint, so that's where the 30 year beer is going to get stowed.

I still don't wanna be a grownup though!

Neither Drew nor I would ever cop to that!  You may grow old, but that doesn't mean you have to grow up.

That is awesome man! Can I see a metal roof in your future? Hmm... 1000 sq feet? Nice yard and picket fence...

Way to go! A cellar in SoCal, that's a major score.
It's such a fine line between stupid and clever.

Yeah, I didn't think they existed. Seems like the early settlers got tired of digging basements somewhere around the praries.

I second the vote for JD Yellow trim.

Congrats!  8)

Welcome to the homeowners club.  It's a beautiful thing.  A great investment (hopefully).
Most importantly...it's yours.  :-\  OK...well that's the long term plan anyway.
What's the 30 year recipe?
