Yep, we’re moving! We’ve bought a house and will soon be listing ours. Super excited! 🙂 About 1-2 months ago, we started talking about possibly moving or possibly doing renos. When it came down to it, there’s no way we could reno our existing home to include the things we’d like to have. The two deal breakers were 1) a nice master ensuite – right now we have a small ensuite with toilet, one sink and combo shower/tub. And 2) a yard large enough to have a good size outdoor living space. Right now, the pool takes up pretty much the whole yard.
So, house hunting began. We currently live in Mississauga and we were looking anywhere between Mississauga to Burlington. Since I take the train to work, I needed to be close enough to a station. Our wish list going into it was:
- Large, modern master ensuite with separate glass shower
- Large yard with enough space to create a nice outdoor living space
- Large master with enough closet space
- Modern kitchen with granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances
- Finished basement
- 4 bedrooms (master, office, 2 guest rooms)
- Wood floors
- Close to train
The house we bought is in Oakville and has all of the above (yay!) except it has carpet upstairs but we’ll be redoing the floors prior to moving in. We’re also already planning on building an awesome deck and outdoor space next spring (think pergola, gazebo, the works). 🙂
We’ve started with the cleaning/purging/packing and it feels good to get rid of so much stuff.
Stay tuned for our progress!
