Default Cross your fingers for me!

Guys....we put in a bid on this baby today. I am SO nervous. We are in love with this place. The house is in great shape, 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, very, VERY nice condition.





This is the best part though....detached garage, 2 stories. The garage will be the main brewery, the upstairs will be turned into the bar. I'll be able to get this done while SWMBO is deployed this winter.



Like I said, I am SO nervous. This is my dream situation.....

I'll try to get more pics up when I can (and as I get them), but if we do get this place I'm gonna need ideas/suggestions on what to do for the bar. I'm going to have to make it work in less than ideal situations, and not a whole lot of space....but I'm getting ahead of myself. In the meantime, pray for me.

Got my fingers crossed for ya man! I remember being SUPER nervous about selling my house before getting the one I'm in now. If it helps any, I've got a good feeling - looks like a place you belong

Good luck on the house. It looks like it's in great shape...and women like bricks...easy maintenance too!

Damn!!! Where's it at? Looks friggin' sweet. Best of luck with it. Maybe it'll make staying there worthwhile!

Nice, I remember being a nervous on the first couple houses. After 13, it's a yawner. I've only lost out on two bids.

Yeah, its a room, but I wouldn't say it is large.

I'd guess its about 25X12 but the ceiling is vaulted so it actually makes the workable space much less. I'm trying to figure out how to make it into a bar...if we get the place, I'll take more pics and see if you guys can suggest anything. It definitely has potential, I just have to be smart about it.
It has a window on each end, so I'll add a window unit A/C for summer, and a portable heater for winter. I plan on spending most of next winter out there building it.

Really, as long as I can get a decent sized bar and a dart board in there, I'm golden.
