We're moving! Back in November we got word that my husband was being transferred to a new office in a new province and the opportunity was just too good to pass on. However, this move won't be easy. We've lived in Calgary for quite a long time now, our girls were born here, our house is now just getting to a point that we love and we've made some really good friends we'll miss dearly.
What will make this move even more challenging, is our new home needs a top to bottom renovation...oh, and did I mention I have never even seen the house!! My husband flew out to look at a home we thought we were going to buy and long story short, that house didn't work out, but by chance he happened upon this house and well...he bought it after seeing it for only 5 or 10 minutes. Crazy I know, but we needed a house.
The house was built around 1920, is not located on acreage, and isn't at all what we were looking for, but with all the negatives, there are some really great things about it. The home is really close to my Mom, Dad and Grandma, a wonderful school is just a short walk away and there is great renovation potential.
I'm just now getting excited by all the possible renovations we could do, especially since I feel I've really developed my home decor style to something I love and am thrilled to start creating a home from scratch.
So what's this mean for my blog. Well, for awhile my posts may be a little sporadic. The craziness of getting our current home ready for sale, packing, moving to a new city, renovating our new home, getting the girls settled in a new neighbourhood and starting a new school will all be a little overwhelming at times.
However, on the fun side of things we will be totally transforming this house so if you're interested in home renovation projects we are going to have a lot of fun posts for you! I'll try to keep my photo challenges going, but to be honest it will be hard, so if I'm not able to post a challenge I hope you will still pick up your camera that week and challenge yourself to take a photo of anything and everything!
We aren't set to move until June, but as soon as I have reno project pictures in the works I'll be sure to share. From what my husband has told me, the house hasn't seen a single renovation in at least 40 years. There is wallpaper to remove, a kitchen and baths to replace, floors to be refinished, a basement to demolish, and the list goes on from there, but transforming a home from the early 1920's is sure to be fun!
Well, I'm off to build my room-by-room inspiration boards for the new house! Wish us luck! :-)
Have a great weekend everyone!
