Ahhhh im back used to be a regular on the forum but been a bit busy recently!

Come back because I always remember to this little section of the forum and remember how good it was!

So im 21, offers been accepted, my mortage has been accepted, and im just waiting on the solicitors now

Will update with pics when it all goes through, its an awesome 2 bedroom terrace house in a quiet cul-de-sac , about 5 min bike ride from where I work very excited.

ok so I use CAD alot for my job, had some time at lunch so I decided to sketch up the plans for my house as there were none exisitng, all the dims are approximate so I could get an idea for size.
Going back next tuesday to take the old laser measurer and get some accurate dims getting excited now though.

Nice one. He's done well. I didn't get my first house until 30. Then again I was breast feeding till I was 9.

Cracking that. I got my first house at 21

My new house is similar. Get the "white work" white again. Will make a massive difference
