People always ask, "How is the house? Are you done with the remodel?" 

Oh my goodness, I just have to laugh! Our house is in a perpetual state of remodel. I'm giving it 10-15 years. Exposed studs, random concrete floors, a pile of about 4000 sq ft of bricks waiting to be laid in the front yard- all this is just par for the course at the Hohsfield Hacienda. When one's house is always 'under construction' two options are at hand- 1) I could wallow in self pity of massive overwhelmedness of this project that sent us way in over heads, never invite anyone over, and cry (occasional breakdowns of this do occur); or 2) I can celebrate the fact that I get to see a crazy transformation occur on a regular basis even if it is small, and invite others to enjoy it too.  Even though sometimes it takes massively convincing myself I know the latter is the best choice. 

On that note- 

First Look (Pictures from when we bought the house)

Our first official walk through (not including the short look around I did with my mom and sister when we 'broke in' two days prior-lol) was with our realtor John Clemens. It was a bit scary. The house had sat for a long time and we had no idea what worked and what didn't. Being a foreclosure, there wasn't much details available. Here are the pictures. Would you have bought it?
