The bad news: It is looking like the house will need a new roof as well as a re-built entry, so negotiations are underway.
The good news: This opens up to new design possibilities! So, that has led me to think about how we might re-do things. The house is a combination of stucco and brick already but it needs a more cohesive appearance, so I have been having fun thinking through the possibilities.

Also...thanks so much for your input and encouragement on the kitchen plans I posted about last time. You all have assured me it's the right thing to do so I'm going to go for it! If the house works out I'll have lots of before and afters to show you all of the kitchen and more!
Keep your fingers crossed on the status.
We should know by next week if that house will be ours or if we're back to square one...I'll let you know!
