I have been in Eugene Oregon looking for a house since Monday and just signed a contract earlier today. We are very excited - our new home is in the hills of South Eugene, in the Crest Drive neighborhood, on 3/4 of an acre city lot. The house itself is a 3 bedroom single story home built like a tank in 1957. The clap board siding is 1" thick solid wood! It needs a little paint and all new appliances, but under the berber carpet is old oak flooring in perfect condition.
Best of all, in addition to the three bedrooms, it has a 21' x 14' room, with two opposing walls of windows and a fireplace, that will be a new perfect studio for Carol. The studio is right off the living room so I can drop in and bug her even more easily than before! There is also a new hot tub right outside the studio on the deck in which Carol can drink her wine after a long day of painting.
We will start driving to Eugene with our VW, Ford truck, and camper next Saturday and will be closing on the house on Oct 5th.
Thank you again for all your support and for the extraordinarily generous fundraiser that helped make this possible.
