We moved in to our current home in late December 2015, after living in an apartment for several months. Our new-to-us home – a 1960’s 2800 sq. ft. Colonial located in the Boston suburbs.
The previous owner was an elderly lady, and while she took excellent care of the house, it was extremely old-fashioned and dated! But we knew this house was diamond in the rough and that it had endless potential. It was the first and only house that we viewed that I instantly knew was “the one”.
Our new home has so many projects that are going to keep us busy for years to come. We’ve got big plans for it and you you’ll follow us on our journey!
Here’s what we’ve accomplished so far…
