over the past month my hubby and I have been on the hunt for our second home and it has been exhausting! we sold our home in the university area over the summer and have been temporarily living in a condo on selwyn. while we LOVE the convenience of everything that is nearby including both of our offices, I feel unsettled and am ready to find our dream home.
house hunting has not been as fun as they make it out to be on HGTV that's for sure.. we have looked at 44 homes in the past month and a half.... 44!!!! our realtor says that we are his new record. you would think by now we would have found something that we can both agree on... but being an interior designer, I immediately notice even the smallest details a normal person would not.. like the fireplace hearth being too high, the awkward little nook in a dining room, odd placement of windows, and then on top of those little things we both have our wants for the house... he wants land, full brick, I want a big kitchen, formal dining room, real hardwoods, etc... we don't want to build because he wants to be in an established neighborhood, oh the list goes on!
over the weekend we looked at 13 more homes and have hopefully found one we can agree on! the offer is in and now we just wait...
I can't wait to get in a home and start decorating it with fresh furnishings and fabrics!!
until then..... fingers crossed that we get it!!!!!
design is a way of life.
