Fixer-Upper

Posted on June 15, 2008 @ 8:03 am

My husband and I had been renting a nice little townhouse since we got married. We recently found out that the area in which we lived has been rezoned and will be turned into industrial office space. We decided that this was the time to look into buying a house, though it made me sad to leave the first home we had together.

We found a house fairly quickly. It was a bit of a fixer-upper, but my husband and I have always been up to a good challenge.

We started with the flooring, removing all of the carpet and laying down hardwoods throughout the house. We had all of the old windows replaced with sash windows and then we gave everything a fresh coat of paint.

It came together very nicely and we are looking forward to making new memories in our new home. We still miss the old one, but this is where our future is at.
