It’s Official: Time to Start Thinking About a House

Today, the startup I founded two years ago was acquired. Thousands of hours of hard work paid off in the form of a few bucks, and we’re all extremely humbled to be among the small percentage of startups that haven’t fizzled out and died.

I’m not a big spender and I have no desire to go out and buy a new car, but this is the first time in my life when I’ve been able to even think about buying or building a house. I’ve been living in apartments and condos since college so the prospective of actually owning some land is starting to look more attractive.

This blog will chronicle the process of buying, remodeling, and/or building a modern home from identifying the property right up until moving in.
