Red Door

One of our goals for this year is to buy our own home.  
We are constantly on real estate sites staying updated on properties on such.  We are still in the process of getting our ducks in a row but, they are lining up rather well.  

Well, we discovered an awesome property the other day.  Its an old cape cod built in the 1950's.  Four bedrooms, nearly 2000 sq. ft., florida room, sitting on 5 acres with stables.
I am in love.  
It is a definite fixer-upper.  That is what we are wanting though.  Take something with some good bones and make it OURS.  It is currently listed as a short sale but is going into foreclosure any day and hoping by the time it does those duckies have gotten themselves lined up like soldiers.  I have already started the remodel in my head.  The outside will look something like this...

The garage is detached on the one we want but cedar siding is a must!
So is the red door.  Ever since the old days of watching One Tree Hill, I have wanted to be "the girl behind the red door".  If you know who I am talking bout, you rock.  

I hope this one works out but if it doesn't there will be another one.

I know exactly what you are talking about. I knew it! Your house looks a lot like B. Davis’. Your beautiful red door made me think of her the moment I saw your home. :D Cheers to us One Tree Hill Fans! Haha! Be the girl behind the red door my friend, and be as awesome as Brooke Davis. :D
