Lindsey Buys a Fixer-Upper: Part 8 – Move-in

Lindsey Buys a Fixer-Upper: Part 8 - Move-in

By Lindsey Wolf Lunney
Last May, my husband and I unintentionally bought a major fixer-upper. In earlier posts, I talked about some of the problems we uncovered during our routine and not-so-routine inspections of the home. I hope my story will make the process easier for others who are thinking of taking on a big project like this one.

The Move In 

Months later, we finally moved into our new house. We still have a stair rail that needs to be built and the back splash to install, happening soon. I have to say, after the headaches, the stress, constantly being on the phone making 5-20 decisions a day, it was totally worth it.
