New Home, a set on Flickr.
Here’s the new house. (Click on the fine print link above to see all the pictures!) We’ve been here now three and a half months. The place is starting to feel like home and we feel so very blessed to have this place to call our own.
Still a lot to do (notice I completely avoided showing any of the basement) and we definitely have a long list of furniture we’d like to have and projects that need to be completed, but for the most part we have settled in quite nicely.
Next on the agenda is a new roof (thanks to the fires last summer and a new law passed that allows insurance companies to drop those of us with wood shake shingles). While I’ll be happy to see the current roof go we’d hoped to save that project for a couple years or get saved by a hail storm or something of the sort.
Then the back yard, or as much of it as we can afford to do this year. Having ancient wood and re-bar hanging about doesn’t make for a super safe play area for the kids now does it? And we need to address any lingering drainage issues since we are downhill.
Despite the never ending drama of being a homeowner, and now landlord, life is good and we have a lot to be thankful for!
