We are moving forward on the house. Purchase agreement has been signed... Just waiting on the bank!

There will be plenty of space for me to practice my forms and hang a heavy bag. Unfortunately the basement ceiling is quite low, so probably no jumping kicks for me.

Iíll hold my congratulations until itís all a done deal so I donít jinx anything

If the basement ceiling is low, make sure a hanging bag will work out before you buy one. You have to account for the chains. I could technically fit a 6ft Muay Thai bag in my basement, but Iíd be punching about 2 inches below the very top of the bag. I found that out by calling Outslayer and getting exact measurements, them making a mock-up version with blankets and twine. Return shipping on a 150 lb bag wouldnít have been cheap.

We closed on it! The move-in process has already begun. Exciting times!

I finally have a spot that's (barely) big enough to do forms.

I agree with buying a house to suit MA needs. Or any other for that matter. My basement will include a small dojo/workout area.
