Possibly Moving - AGAIN

So, the last time we moved, I VOWED that we would be here for at least 10 years! I detest packing and unpacking! So, why you ask are we possibly doing it again???

So, we were looking for places in Utah County that will allow home owners to have a studio...in-home. We just decided to give up our photography studio lease in Provo so that we can have a studio closer to home. We were looking for homes in Woodland Hills and Elk Ridge when we stumbled (ok...more like divine intervension) on this house in Salem. It's a HUGE house...6800 sq feet with 3 stories and a basement. The basement also has an apartment that we're able to rent out. It is also on 3/4 of an acre. The house does need a LOT of TLC, but we think it would be great work on it. All of it's cosmetic...nothing huge to worry about.

Salem has a few stipulations on home businesses, however, we've done our homework and our studio will work just fine in the home! The 3rd floor is an atic converted to a master suite that has vaulted ceilings. As soon as we get the 2nd floor done (4 bedrooms and 2 bath), we'd move from the master to the 2nd floor and use the 3rd floor as a studio.

After all is said and done, we could sell the house for a pretty penny, or we could stay there and live in what we created! BUT---as of right now, we just have an offer in on that house and we put ours on the market. We'll see how everything pans out!
