Our Home

In June 2011 Chris and I decided to do something very unique: we bought a house with my parents.

At the time we had been looking at real estate and as we struggled to find a house we loved, or one that came even remotely within budget, my Mom and Dad decided to put my childhood home on the market. It sold very quickly and when we started assisting my parents in the search for a new house we came upon a beautiful home in a great neighbourhood that would accommodate all of us.

With two completely separate living spaces, Chris, Eloise and I have our home and garden on the main level and my parents have the top two levels. Once our family grows we will swap living spaces with my parents, creating a home that will serve all of us in the years to come. Our choice to buy a home together means that my parents will never miss a milestone, my children will grow up with their grandparents and we will all be here to take care of each other no matter what life sends our way.

I often blog about projects around the house because our home is forever a work in progress. Chris and I did a complete overhaul of our space before moving in, renovating the kitchen, updating the bathroom and painting every surface. You must check out some of the dramatic before images below, it was a cacophony of bold colours and 'unique' decorating.
