Renovator's Delight : A home requiring love, time and energy to restore it to its former glory.
We have one of these beauties.
It's actually our second one.
House 1 we completed with minor repairs and a huge clean up & lived it in for 5 1/2 years. We then bought House 2 directly behind House 1! We did a few more minor repairs on House 1, subdivided a fair chunk of House 1's back yard onto House 2 and sold House 1.
Moving house was a lot easier that it could have been...we managed with short car trips through the block and generous friends to share the load.
Now, 4 1/2 years later, we have a beautifully partially completed home, a finished garden, lots of land in the middle of our town... and a strong desire to blinking well complete the job!!
It is a beautiful character cottage....we have the love.
With our two children now both school aged and willing & able to amuse themselves for longer periods...we have the time.
The energy? The effort?
Well, that seems to be the challenge :-)
It is our major goal for 2016.
Step by step, we'll complete our home and enjoy our beautiful space.
Did I say that already?
