Say Hello House

We are compiling this blog to keep family and friends updated with the progress of our house/lives. Here is the condensed soup version so far..

This chapter of our life began with possibly the longest and most challenging home search ever. 9 months from start to finish, two diffrent real estate agents, and so many houses we lost track. I'll spare you details. Truthfully, I would do it all ten times over to be able to be where we are today. Our home is a perfect 1030sqft bungalow with 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. We are completly in love with it. Everyday I am floored at how much pride and happiness fills my heart just living here. Completly worth every single dollar and minute of time spent on it.

Our house is not an immediate fixer upper. Not wrecked and ravaged through but instead a nice family lived, played, and took great care of the house. We really didn't want something that needed a bunch of work. We are first time home buyers and didn't want to get over our heads in renos..or did we? It didn't take long to start the process of demoing and I've been snapping a few pictures along the way. Thomas is amazing and very motivated to take on big projects. He's really not afraid of putting a little sweat labour into our house. Me? Well I'm the blogger. Nonononono. I am the design consultant/little helper. He says "Get me a screwdriver for this", then I get him the wrong one with the stary head intead of the squishy flat one.. etcetc.. Anyways. Stay tuned. One minute we have floors and the next.. well thats for another post.

Here are the listing pictures taken mid February 2010 :
