Sig Other and I aren’t just buying any house. We’re buying a house that has been in the family for over 50 years - that also happens to be right near my Mom. I spent a lot of time in it growing up, and have a lot of wonderful memories there.

It’s an old house in need of TLC. We’ve hired a licensed contractor and set a budget. Sig other put me in charge of making sure we stick to the budget. I have put him in charge of not getting pissed at me if we go over it.

A friend suggested I blog the experience. Sig Other agreed it was a good idea. You can blame them both for this site.
