Our new homestead

Last month after a lot of looking at real estate online, trying to get our house ready to sell, and just not being sure what we could afford to do, we decided that we should probably just talk to the bank to determine what our options were in terms of selling the house and getting a loan, buying land and getting a loan to build a house without selling the current one, or anything else that was available. Todd is friends with the president of the local bank, so he went in to talk to him about our options. Todd explained that the main thing we were looking for was a few acres out in the country whether we found vacant land or a house. His friend mentioned that the bank had two foreclosures for sale.

We went to look at them and were not overly impressed with the first one. Then we went to see the second one. It felt like home.

It is an older mobile home on about three acres. It has a metal roof added on which covers the mobile home and the porch which runs the entire length of the house. It has a nice barn and a dilapidated shed. It has lots of trees (which is worth mentioning in this part of Oklahoma), but also has a large cleared area at the back. And the neighbors to the rear have llamas.

It’s going to need a lot of work, but we’re excited to make it our own.

  1. Your new place looks so “homey” and comfortable. This is yet another story of God having us in the right place at the right time. ..we are always in our right place. By His grace you went to the bank and by His grace everything is going just as planned–not your plans, but His. So happy for you!
