I thought I'd do a little #throwback to what the living room looked like when we first moved in and how it's turning out now, I love how all the colours go with each other now and I love the quirkiness of the shelves after the husband talked me into keeping the shelving unit there instead of boarding over it I think it's good to do this once in a while as it reminds you how far you've actually come
Homeownership isn’t easy, that’s for sure, but it’s something I jumped into on my own at the young age of 23! It was scary and stressful AF ago buy a home on my own, with no experience, and no one by my side! This was especially true since I ended up needing a 203k Rehab Loan on the house after a bad inspection! What a mess! But, I was beyond tired of throwing my money away on rent in an apartment that I hated, so I went all in! .
That being said, I am SO thankful that I’ve had this experience, and that my amazing family has helped me so much along the way. From my Uncle being the general contractor for the main construction in the beginning, to the million and one projects my dad has done here, it’s FINALLY a home that I now get the share (sometimes - LDR problems) with my amazing husband. We’ve done so much work together to finally make my first house our home, and I love what we’ve built here. .
One thing about homeownership though, is the projects are seemingly never ending. Tonight, in the middle of a snow storm, with Hubby working away in Brazil, I get to search for plumbers to fix a broken sewer pipe the previous owners never fixed properly! Nonetheless, I wouldn’t have it any other way, because beyond all the stress, this journey has been so damn rewarding! .
