We started the search a few months ago, initially browsing MLS and ViewPoint, and then we contacted our Realtor. Our intention was to start looking to get a sense of what we liked, and then but the plan into motion after the holidays. 18 boring houses later, and we unexpectedly found ourselves standing in the living room of the house that just felt like home. The layout is exactly what we wanted, spacious and open. Three bedrooms for our little family with the potential to add a fourth in the already-finished basement. It has curb appeal and a big yard, with lots of room to play and entertain. And it’s not perfect either. There’s some wallpaper to strip, and floors to swap and little updates here and there, but those things might be what we’re most excited for– to make our little home our own.
With moving day less than two weeks away, we’ve already packed a significant amount of our current home into boxes and bins. I spend all of my free time pinning, searching and jotting notes in a lengthy Google Doc, keeping track of our to-dos and must-buys.
On the list of priorities after Dec. 10:
- Install new (just purchased!) dining room chandelier and fire place sconces.
- Strip wallpaper downstairs. Repaint.
- Work on updates to J’s big boy room.
- Put a happy wreath on our new front door.
Looking forward to giving you the full tour once we’re in and settled!
