    I'll never forget the first day back to work after moving into our first house. Buying the house and getting everything taken care of was beyond stressful. Then you lost a few months sleep thinking about the cost. Then you move in and most people take a few days off of work. But let me tell you...I will never forget my first day back to work after moving in. I pulled into the driveway of MY house and stepped out of the car. Then I proceeded to walk down the sidewalk to the front door of MY house! I had the biggest smile on my face. It is a great step buying that first one.

    Congratulations and all the best.

    Congrats! It feels great doesn't it. I remember those feeling of happiness/fear with our first one. But it's yours!

    Congrats bro, and coincidence. The wife and I just moved into our first home this weekend. My 7 minute drive to work is now 50 minutes, but the house and neighborhood rocks! You are right, it is most definitely exciting AND stressful. Welcome to home-ownership!

    Congrats dude! I hope your foundation is one piece! My first house had a bad foundation that the home inspector missed, and it cost me $8000 to have part of the house raised.

    Thanks everyone!! We can't wait to get into the house. It'll be nice to use the washer and dryer and not have to pump money in them or have to walk outside to the laundry room!!!

    Hey seenbad I may be giving you a pm when we get into it and start working!!

    PS hey Zeo sorry to hear about your foundation......Now I have something else to worry about!!

    Don't worry too much about it. You'll find all kinds of suprises when you do your remodelling. I dumped my first POS house after 10 months and I am loving my second house.

    Congratulations.

    I don't know what you paid, nor do I care to know, but I'm assuming that if it's in or around Knoxville, TN, for the same amount of money you could be saying, "My wife and I bought our first hallway, closet, and 1/2 a bedroom" for the same amount of $$ in Boston.
