At 30 years old, I bought myself a house.

I – like many – was tired of wasting my hard-earned money on rent every year. I live in Austin, much cheaper than my previous years in the Northeast, and I was still spending more than $25k every year just to have a roof over my head. Why couldn’t I spend that money on a house, building equity for myself. Then if I wanted to move (aka sell my house), I would get some of it back, or more!

So, I pursued that idea, and found a great little ‘starter house’ for myself. A 3-2, with a solid foundation, ‘great bones’ and technically was move-in ready, though a bit outdated.

In this blog, you’ll hear about some of my projects, big and small, so that you may hopefully learn from my mistakes. I hope to give you some easy ways to complete seemingly difficult tasks, and still achieve impressive results. Enjoy!
