The Story Begins ...


Mike and I signed a contract to purchase our first home on December 4. It is an adorable 1920s bungalow in the Wiles Hill neighborhood of Morgantown, WV. Borrowing the idea to document the ups and downs of home ownership, decorating and renovations from my best friend Jennelle, I decided to start this blog.

Credit for the blog title, A Short Story, goes to Mike. In case you didn't know, he has extensive blog experience. Check out if you haven't already.

A Short Story is a play on our address: Short Street. He's so clever.

Our story begins today with our home inspection. Sure, I may be jumping to conclusions by beginning before we close, but I'm trying to be optimistic. I have cabbaged the picture of the house shown here from (thanks to Jeff Goff, the Old Colony listing agent and who we are working with). I will have others up after tonight's inspection.

While in the process of having visions floating around in our heads of what we want our small (just under 1200 square feet) home to look like, I have been checking out pics online for decorating ideas. I would love to eventually have both of the home's bathrooms done in Bungalow Tile similar to the picture below:

Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves. We need to get through the inspection first.

Please follow along with us as our Short Story writes itself. We're gonna need all the help and support we can get!
