We laughed with our realtor yesterday about the use of the term “house” versus “home.” There is a difference between the two words. One seems matter of fact and the other is personal. Since we began this house attack process, our living residence was a “house” in most of my frame work. I had a list of to-dos and I just kept at them. This week, the list of to-dos got less and less until we were done. Now that I am not in task mode and breathing (and able to sit once again), I am getting sad about leaving this place that we call home.
We changed this old 1952 house from Matt’s bachelor pad to a place where we started our marriage and our family. So many memories exist here. Although I am excited for this next phase of life, it will be sad to close a huge chapter here.
Yesterday, I showed you a quick DIY Initial I made to complete one of my staged shelves. Today, I want to give you the full tour of our house. Almost the way potential buyers see it…a full video walk thru. I will be updating our Home Tab at the top with more pictures soon, but I want to get them organized and edited properly first. Until then, please come see our house! Welcome in!
If you made it through the whole video, you saw we have two huge beds for these rascals.
I don’t talk much about our pups, but they are fun (and trouble) and nervous wrecks right now with all the moving and changes that have been going on. You also saw in the video I couldn’t take down all my boys’ art in their bedroom. I took down LOTS of pictures for staging, but I just couldn’t take down all their art. The video goes from our house to our apartment out back that I have mentioned we rent out to my brother and sister in law. Tony is the wood worker that I always refer to, hence the big pile of wood at the foot of their bed. The last thing you see is Matt’s office that Tony and our friend Zach helped create. Its one of my favorite places on this property.
Well, there you have it! That is our home! I will be back soon with lots of pictures and some DIY of items you saw featured.
How much fun to get a tour of your home! It is fun to see your handiwork throughout!
Thank you Heather!!!!

Thank you Debbie for checking it out!! I can’t believe we could be leaving this home soon!
