Our House

We first saw this house in the Fall of 2007. It didn’t met any of our criteria. We wanted at least a 3 bedroom/2 bath in a particular school zone in a certain price range and this was a 2 bedroom/2 bath, not in our price range or in our school zone but we thought we would take a look. We feel in love with it the minute we walked in. We watched it sit on the market as the economy started to plummet and soon the price was finally within negotiating territory. We purchased this 1947 home in June 2008.

We renovated our house in 2010. We remodeled two existing rooms and added two bedrooms – while continuing to live in our house. Like the many stories you hear, our experience was no different. It was a painful process with many obstacles to overcome. The project ran several months behind schedule (although we managed to remain within budget). The builders were working right up to the day Lily was born. Now we are in the process of furnishing and decorating our house and settling in to our new space – finally! We look forward to sharing updates as we continue to make progress!

Playroom Progress

This room is on hold as we decide if we are going to expand again or make this a nursery for Baby #3. In the meantime, this is our 4th bedroom that currently acts as a playroom. Click here to see more.

Our Kitchen


I have yet to take pictures of the entire kitchen. I’m not sure why. Maybe because it’s nothing too exciting. Just a galley kitchen with upgraded materials but not a lot of charm and personality. Maybe one day soon? However, I was pretty proud of our pantry makeover. Click here to see more of that reorganization effort.
