Welcome!


Yep. This is my darling husband. Haha! This photo was taken on Sunday when our friend Danielle helped us move some items to the house. The movers came yesterday, which I was grateful for, as it was 15 degrees with the wind chill making it feel like the Arctic. We've both moved a lot, so this was our first time ever hiring someone to move our furniture and boxed items, and I have to admit I felt really odd just letting them work while I just puttered around.

So as I'm typing this staring at the half-finished refinished wood floor, it has all been worth it and will continue to be. So much more painting, cleaning and decorating to do, but it's allllll ours. *Big smile*

Do you have a home or flat you own? What is the most rewarding part of home ownership?

  1. Has the house move sent him over the edge?! It's supposed to be one of the most stressful things we can do, isn't it?
    Dying to see the house when you've got it the way you want it.
    I suppose mine has to be being featured in an interiors mag, hugely flattering to be asked considering the place was almost derelict when we moved in. xxx

    1. Haha! No, he's always been the nutter than I love ;) He even wore the jack-o-lantern head in car (I was driving). Your house is amazing and it reflects your loveliness, I'm not surprised it's been featured in interior magazines!!!

  2. We moved into our own house about 12 years ago - away from an apartment house with neighbours who kept on bullying us. So moving into our own house with our own garden made our life easier and more relaxing - especially for our children.
    Quality of life improved.
    You can do what you want inside your own walls and you do it for yourself - that's the best thing about it. Well, I just love it. :)
    So I hope you will enjoy your new life, too.

  3. I think it is exactly what you are doing - making it your own. We moved to Colorado in Aug. 2012 and bought the worlds ugliest home. 2 years later it has been gutted and remodeled to our tastes - it was stressful but so worth it.

  4. haha since I live in NYC, I'll never be able to afford to own my own place. The housing crisis here is unbelievable. Though I can dream and live vicariously though your posts.

    1. We have a guest room! ;) Buffalo would be too boring compared to the city, but it's incredibly affordable....for now, we're getting cool again. ;)

  5. Wait... did Derek have some work done? Maybe a nose job? ;)

    For me, the most rewarding part of homeownership is that it encourages me to be creative and to make things. It also prompted me to start a blog, which has been immensely rewarding in itself.

  6. Well, I live in a house that I will most likely eventually inherit (although my mother's not allowed to die, I've already told her that)… there's something to be said for being able to paint the front door an outlandish and untrendy color with no fear of irritating the landlord. That, and being able to try weird DIY projects…. paper floor, not so great (it's fading), bubble-wrap-on-the-windows-for-insulation, so far so good!

    1. Ha! I love it! I also told my parents and in-law's they are not allowed to die ;)

  7. Very quirky! I hope he answered the door to the builders like that!

    I am dying for my own place so I can have my own garden, vegetable patch and pets!

  8. I live in Sydney near the beach (Coogee) and the best part of owning my own house is having a place for my thousands of Barbie dolls. Sorry just kidding. Actually its been being able to set up a decent workshop to work on my old motorbikes. Also I love owning a dog and not having to find rentals that accept pets. The downside, maintenance. I'm painting window frames this Summer cutting out wood rot and its a pain. Good luck with your new home. I hope you have lovely neighbors.

  9. My husband can't relax unless he lives in a home he (we) own. He has a love/hate relationship with home improvement projects! Can't wait to see pics!
