CV home. We bought our house seven years ago from the family who built it 80 years ago. I doesn't show but it was a house well taken care of. But not at all a house for a family with two (three to be) small children. Only one bedroom, one small bathroom, a kitchen not renovated since the 60's. Situated by a pretty busy road. The first thing we did was fence the garden for the safety of our kids. After that we built another bedroom and installed a tile stove. Since then we've continued working on the house and today it's perfect for us. Inside and outside. We actually want to live in a more quiet place and are planning a move to the countryside but it will be hard leaving this house behind. We have worked so hard making it our home.


  1. Raised beds and lilac! Yes, it will be hard to leave, but the next place you will make your own again, and again so lovingly.

    Congratulations #3! xo

  2. it is looking an absolute stunner. i love the outside colour too. couldn't you just take it with you's?? i wonder.

  3. The house that grew with your family will always be part of you, no matter where you live.
