Things are really coming along at the house! Hardwood floors found under kitchen floor, updated wiring taking place in the kitchen, and our first coat of polyurethane has gone down on the floors upstairs!

I wish I could say that I found Westgate or that maybe had some sort of tie to the community through friends or family. Westgate found me via my girlfriend and her mother’s extensive real estate searches when I decided to get out of crappy apartment living. My “mother in law” must have really wanted to get Jordan out of the house because she was a hound dog when it came to finding me a place.
The weekend of the 4th of July Jordan and her mother had six home viewings scheduled for one day, all in Westgate. They had completed a scouting mission and figured I would like the neighborhood. I did. I was born and raised on a dairy farm so city living has taken some getting used to. The quiet tree lined streets immediately appealed to me. When I sat down on the front porch of the second house we visited I knew I was going to put and offer in.
Fast forward a month or two and I had the keys and all the utilities were in my name. One evening, Jordan and I were working on the house and decided it was supper time. We headed for Broad Street where the ultimate selling point and true value of living in Westgate was observed. White Castle! Pow! Delicious sliders in my neighborhood, welcome home Tommy, welcome home.

When our home search began it was proven to be just as difficult to find what we were looking for in a dog friendly area that wasn't too far from work for either us. Finally after several drives around Columbus seeing everything from chickens in the backyard, totally cookie-cutter, to places I refused to get out of the car, we FINALLY landed in Westgate.
We looked at several houses in the area and we both knew it when we walked in the door. There wasn't any debate at all. After seeing seven houses that day we knew which one we wanted. Tommy and his realtor (my grandmother) wrote up the offer and shortly after that we were in contract.
After an inspection and a few small issues, we have finally closed and the real fun has begun!
I figured we should start with all the before pictures because the after pictures are going to be amazing!
Check back often to see our progress!! We are excited to share this process with you!
Tommy and Jordan
