In December 2015 Hubs and I bought a house. Not to live in, but to put a renter in.
There was a much larger plan that came crashing down and then changed yet again in the new year. During all of these up’s and down’s, not only did we survive, our marriage, and our finances, but the home that was an incredible bargain came through really well.
I never showcased our after photos of some pretty paint and new appliances. It’s a wonder what a sprinkle of tenderness can do. Tenderness and a barrier primer that eliminates resin from nicotine. Former owners, the original owners had smoked inside the home since 1961. You can imagine that layer of memories. Six months in and things are still getting updated a little at a time. I think the Country Cottage (as I am calling her) has had a pretty good start. At 4 bedrooms – she may be more than a cottage, but don’t let her know. She’s Chic !
