so things are finally happening on the home front…we stalled a little trying to decide what to do – do we build a new house or keep looking, then Christmas came, and went …and New Years too.
In the meantime, the Real Estate/Housing market is going gangbusters…
I mean its such a big decision (and an expensive one), and building is something we’ve never done before so making the right decision does take time.
..a few weeks ago we had a 3 hour meeting with the building company and both the hubs and I came out of it feeling comfortable, which is a relief.
Still, there is a lot to think about but I think we are finally onto the next stage which means signing up to get a new home built!
Do contemporary homes really lack character?
I hear that often on home shows and renovation shows, I think about it myself …a lot.
Our current home is 90 years old and has lots of lovely features…so yes, lots of ‘character’ but it also lacks a lot of things and requires a lot more maintenance than a new home ever would …can we even compare? Should we?
They are totally different!
Starting a Inspiration board over on Pinterest called
‘Future Home’, has helped me zone-in on an interior style.
I also have my folder of magazine clippings that I’ve been collecting (Hey! I’m old school!)
but its not just about beautiful interiors, more important for me are the practical ideas, using the space, having enough storage, creating the atmosphere…and coming together as a family,
in a family home…
Am i thinking about everything too much? ha-ha probably….
