Oooooh, I have been bursting with our exciting news, but I wanted to wait until the home inspection was over. We're buying a house! We get possession at the end of March. It's huge! Much bigger than anything I would have ever dreamed of owning, so it is a good thing there is a suite in the basement to rent out. I think I am most excited about the big backyard, because that means that I am going to get chickens. A dream come true! Also, I am very excited about all the painting and renovating and decorating that will make this place our own. There are a lot of weird paint jobs in this house, and the kitchen countertops are almost puke-worthy, but I have discovered a great paint product that can cover them up. I have a feeling there are going to be a lot of before and after shot posts on this blog in the future!
For now, here is a picture of the outside of the house (I know, it's pretty ugly) and some drawings of the different colours I am picturing for the outside. Vote on your favourite. I think I like green, but the neighbours have green, too.
