Making our house a HOME!

New House

If you have been keeping up with Mom Mart, then you know that we have recently sold our old townhouse and bought a new single family house. We scoured the internet and met with our real estate agent {hi Sandy!} to look at homes, and we found a house that was perfect for us.

We wanted a house that had room for our family to grow and that was located near relatives. Our new home is right around the corner from both my mother-in-law and my sister-in-law and her family – this is a good thing. The new house has more than enough space for our family and an unfinished basement to boot {hello nail gun and air compressor!}. I could not be happier.

While the house itself is perfect for our family, the style and décor of a majority of the rooms do not fit with our family’s personal style. For example, a pink ribbon stencil border in my baby boys’ room is not something that is going to be staying. I have been getting a lot of ideas on Pinterest and cannot wait to start putting them into action. It is amazing what a simple coat of paint can do to a room and I see a lot of painting in my future.

My husband has become a little spoiled when it comes to technology and some of the technology in the new home will be updated. He prefers a programmable thermostat and enjoys the convenience of Wi-Fi. He is the techno savvy guru in our home and I will be putting him to work changing some light fixtures very soon.

Since we are planning on {God willing} having more children in the future, we will need to finish the basement. We will put a guest bedroom and a bathroom in the basement as well as a play area for the kids. There are a lot of home renovations in the works and I look forward to sharing the process with you as we tackle one room at a time.

I will be sharing pictures of each project from beginning to end. For those of you who love those before- and-after pictures, don’t worry – there will be plenty! I will also be sharing with you what it is like to tackle these projects with two little children under foot. It should be entertaining to say the least!
