After two years of travelling full-time, Paul and I craved a home of our own where we could display our favourite travel souvenirs and entertain. It took two years of saving, house hunting and compromise – but at the end of November 2018 we finally took possession of our first house!
The house is located in south Burlington, not far from the lake – so we can enjoy that same waterfront lifestyle we got accustom to in Barcelona and Sydney. With four bedrooms and a pool, it’s the perfect sized home to entertain. The house was built in 1971, and still features many of the original elements – which means we have a lot of work ahead of us.
If you’ve been following along on Insta Stories, you would have seen that we’ve already completed some of our initial renovations. Right before Christmas we were able to move into our house, but we still have plenty of work to do (including renovating the kitchen, bathroom and basement). I plan on sharing room reveals as we finish each part of the house, but today I wanted to share some of the before pictures with you! It’s pretty crazy how only three weeks of renovations has transformed this house so far, and I can’t wait to see what it looks like a year from now.
