We Found our Dream House! Crickets & Nickets Come Home

We found our dream house right here in Kanab!  It needs a ton of work (that we're tackling night and day) because it's never been finished, it has flood damage inside and it's been abandoned for 5 of the 6 years since it was built, but.... WE FOUND AND BOUGHT OUR DREAM HOME on foreclosure (which is the only way that we were able to afford it, lol)!!  

It's on almost 3 acres and there's plenty of studio room for everything Crickets.  Wanna see some photos (some of these were taken BEFORE the flood damage, but you get the general idea)??

If only the yard still looked this good (now it's high weeds)!

The main floor front door...love the archways! :)

This is the 2-story-high great room with picture windows and indoor balcony
What's this?!  Plenty of kitchen cabinets?! :D
My fave part: Master bath with soaker tub and FIREPLACE!!

Thanks for joining us...now you've seen most of the main floor (there's also an upstairs and a basement), more pics will be coming later. :)

Oh my goodness!!! Your new home is BEAUTIFUL, Celeste!!! How exciting for y'all! How absolutely gorgeous!! And you know, even the labor that you will have to put in it, just makes it more yours. Enjoy your re-newing in your cleaning up and making back to beautiful again. What a fun adventure!

And too, I love your wild burros! I must say I'm jealous!!! I know that they've already stolen your heart... because they've already stolen mine with just a picture all across the multitude of miles!

Mighty blessings to you and your husband, dear girl!

Celeste, what a beautiful home !! I love all the open space, from what you said you have work ahead of you, but in the end it will be worth the labor of love, I know your creativity will make it outstanding !! I love your new family additions, how fun !! I keep telling my husband I want some pygmy goats, maybe someday !! LOL !! Wishing you much happiness and success in your new home !! Ruth Ann

Ruth Ann, if you're ever in Kanab, UT then please look me up...I can show you the giant herd of goats that live on city property (I think they might be pygmies, they're really short?!) and will follow you around bleating at you! ;)

We can fill that baby up with more dogs and cats- no problem. :) Enjoy!!!

Ha ha ha ha, I'll bet! :D We did adopt two wild burros (who are taming up nicely), they moved to the new property before we did!
