We've Moved!

By PaisleyJade - Saturday, April 11, 2015

It's been just over a week since we've moved house!  There are still lots of boxes to unpack (thankfully we have an attic to put them in until we get around to it) and the whole house needs a makeover, but we are loving it!

We left behind our home of 8 years that we had renovated... it was a bit sad saying goodbye, especially to our massive section...

But we haven't looked back since moving into our new home - we love it.  It's a giant bungalow we are going to renovate and hopefully stay in for a very long time (think 5 bedrooms, 2 toilets and 3 lounges plus an attic).

Our romantic anniversary adventures...

We outgrew our last home, and thankful this new one has plenty of space and character (we love old character homes!).   We've already started drawing up kitchen designs and tearing off old wallpaper, and once some re-piling has been done we can get cracking with our plans.

One of my main concerns as a mum had been helping the kids settle in, which they have all done really well.  They have all exclaimed happily how much they love their new home and also the local area.  Boo the dog and Barney the cat are loving it as well.

I'm looking forward to renovating this place (it has some awesome stories that go with it and was the original homestead of the street) and will share before and after pictures as we go.

Until then, here are a few shots of some of my favourite places...

Be back soon!

  4. I love character homes too, looking forward to seeing you put your mark on the place. It's hard to tell from the pictures but I'm looking at it in Wellington terms and your section still looks fairly massive!

  5. Yes yes yes OMG! !! So loving the pics!!! Can't wait to see what you do with it and absolutely you will love the space!!! (We brought a 1919, 4 bedroom bungalow 2 years ago and we all just love the space!!! And character houses are my absolute favorite! )
