You probably have been wondering where i have been.... well to be honest i have been busy organising the purchase of our new home. Yes that is right another house. It was totally unexpected so i am still a little shocked but very very happy with our decision. For quite sometime we have been looking for something a little smaller with not as much land. As the girls have become older and now one has moved out of home, we realise that we dont need the room we used to; our property is ideal for a family with children, animals, maybe even a pony. So we are moving into a different faze of our life and yes, another chapter will begin. And it will give me more excuses to post all our ideas and changes during the renovations . These are some sneak photos i took the other day for you to see. The bones are beautiful; built in 1840 with all original cedar doors, mantles etc. There are lots we need to do to put our stamp on it ....painting decorating and a few structural changes but all in all its very solid and livable. The photo above is looking from one upstairs bedroom into the other, displaying the beautiful early cedar doors and architraves.
And this wraps all around the entire room......love love love. I think its my favourite room in the house....girls can you possibly guess why.
Looking from the front lounge into the kitchen, dining area. As you can see it needs a few changes but all really structurally sound.
The exterior is beautiful but we will change the colours and the garden slightly but such a great aspect facing east.
Another photo of front elevation. I am currently trying to find out a little on its history....so stay tuned. The sad part about all this is that we will be putting our property on the market in spring. So busy times ahead and our trip has been put on hold till May. Oh well another chapter in our lives and more for me to post about. I will be showing you the progression of our renovations when we take possession. Take care everyone and i wont leave it so long next time between posts. Let me know what you think.....x
