The person who is potentially going to be our wedding minister (a long time friend of FFIL’s who is also a minister), told Future Father-In-Law that he was selling 3 acres of land and a house that seriously needs to be fixed up. We went out to see it and decided that for the price, and given our dire circumstances, that we’d like to buy the place. Future Father-In-Law owns a construction company, so all of the supplies and equipment are readily available to take on the project of getting the house ready before we get married. I’m excited for this and have been doing a lot of praying about it. I feel like this is the right move. I’d just like to ask all of you to keep us in your thoughts/prayers that all of this works out. I mean, it’s pretty much ours. The minister took the place off the market and turned down another offer because we said we wanted it. All we have to do now is pay the down payment and sign the papers. Nothing would make me happier than to be a homeowner for Christmas! It sucks that we won’t be able to move in right away, but just knowing that we’re one step closer is an incredible feeling 🙂

Thank you guys so much! I am very happy to be getting out of our current situation, as you all know how much of a pain it is dealing with my Future Sister-In-Law.
@pinkshoes: I love, love, love HGTV. I have watched so much of it, so I know a thing or two about remodeling. Luckily for us, Future Father-In-Law has the equipment and know how to make this happen.
I will definitely be doing progress pics. It will be a long process, but a worthwhile one for sure!
