Two and a half years ago, I posted that I was debt-free. I've been debt-free ever since. Until today, when [profile] fizzygeek and I spent the afternoon with an attorney. Now we have a mortgage. And to go with it, a house.

It's a nice old farmhouse on 5 acres in Lovettsville, with a nice little creek running through the property. It's out on the edge of town, and they're planning on building a park in some land out behind the neighboring farmer's fields. The previous owners have done some beautiful work on the house, bringing the second floor bathroom up into the attic, giving it a higher ceiling and more light. They've added on a spacious kitchen/breakfast nook with a vaulted ceiling and skylights. There's a deck out back, surrounding a tree. There's a nice little sun porch, lots of built-in shelves, a finished basement, a cedar closet, and a fire pit. The yard has plenty of plantings of native plants, and is a Certified Wildlife Habitat and a Certified Bird Friendly Habitat. Fizzygeek will get to indulge her green thumb.

What a lovely house!
It looks nice, but you left out the important detail. Does it have a workshop/lair for a mad scientist?
It has a finished basement that's a little smaller than my current one, but I think I can make it work. Most of the "lab" is in a back room of the current basement, and should fit easily enough. The rest of it is storage, and I'm planning on buying a shed to put out back and run power to it to act as additional storage and a workshop. I'm also in the process of outcrufting and condensing (why store an entire broken laserdisc player when I just want the laser out of it).
