Not our first house together, but it is the first house we have owned. Well technically the bank owns it. I think we probably own the front door. mmm after 3 years of paying a mortgage, thats probably about all we own. sad. interest sucks.
But its ok. Cos whilst the bank owns it now, there will be a day, sometime in the next 22 years, that we will own it. And in the meantime, we get to paint it, knock down walls, remove the kitchen, punch holes in the doors if we feel the need.....whatever we like. We get to make it our own.
AND i know we will never have to move. Unless we want to. THAT is an awesome feeling. We moved 4 times in 4 years before we bought our own place. I dont reccomend it. Not fun. Not even a little bit.
