Name: Kevin & Julie
Location: Overland Park, Kansas

When we were preparing for baby number three, my husband and I bought a house that apparently no one wanted. This makes us either geniuses or saps. I'm still not sure, but I lean toward the former.

Our lovely 1960s split level (yes, that's right; I called a split level lovely) had been on the market for four months including a "price adjustment" and still no takers. Enter the Morrises. Our diamond in the rough had been updated enough to be truly tragic. Since our purchase a year and half ago, we've been busy updating what needed to go (like the kitchen and hopefully soon a poorly updated bathroom), fixing up what was already great about the house (like the floors), and decorating with lots of garage sale, estate sale, and Craigslist finds.

Thanks, Kevin & Julie!
