We are officially homeowners for the first time in our lives, and after almost ten years of marriage! We closed on our lovely little house in Port Orchard, Washington on 10/27, took possession the next day, and moved in Thursday.
Moving day! Here’s the moving truck pulled up to our rental house, ready to get us out of there!
Since the moving truck pulled away from our new home, we’ve been unpacking and trying to figure out where things go. We were renting a 1740 sq. ft. tri-level home in Kent, and our new home is 1258 sq. ft., so we’re squeezing things in. But we have a detached two-car garage with a huge workshop out back, so we’re putting a lot of things back there.
Dear readers (if there are any of you left), let me introduce you to my home. It was built in 1923 and sits on a quarter-acre corner lot. For the last ten years, it was inhabited by an artist and gardener who took loving care of this home. As a result, we now own this sweet, almost cottage-like home.
And now, for my favorite room in the house and 75% of the reason that I fell head over heels in love with this home – the kitchen.
Our internet was installed yesterday so I am now reconnected to the world. More pictures to come as the house morphs, changes, and is decorated with my antiques!
