1501 Morrow....soon to the "The Roans" new digs!

We made an offer and after some slight negotiations, the house is ours!!!!

We decided to focus our attention to buying a house in a small neighborhood called Crestview. Just North of were we currently live but on the inside of Mopac, this is the small neighborhoods that time forgot. The city of Austin is planning big things for the area and there is soon to be an Metro line that runs near it.

Sheila & Justin Roan
1501 Morrow St.
Austin, Texas 78757

It offers 3 bedrooms (1 is a bit small) and 1 bathroom. It has a 2 car garage and a generous backyard. New kitchen appliances and the bathroom has been retiled with Travertine tile.

Also, expect that Justin and I are going to be making some changes to the whole thing to include an additional Master Bathroom and a larger kitchen (knocking out some walls, moving a door and windows) and adding a carport/arbor for keeping our boat.

We will be super busy in the next few weeks getting an inspector out, getting our financing finalized and meeting with parents and an architect to scope out our projects that need to be done. Also finding a contractor..I am so excited! If all goes well, we expect the keys to be in our hands on May16th!!!!

This is the inside (where the new/largert kitchen will be and the side view of the house (where the new bathroom will be).

I forgot to mention that there are 3 churches that surround the house so if you need to attend either a Lutheran, Methodist or Bible...we have you covered and you can get drunk with us on Saturday and crawl there in the morning. :)
