A new neighborhood


Over the weekend we moved into our new house. Goodbye dingy apartment that is dark like a bat cave. Hello old house with charming brick and tons of windows. The house is 86 years old and is therefore quite small and in need of some serious upgrades. So it's not 100% charming now, but it has lots of potential and will be 100% cool when we're done. I hope. At least the neighbors and the Frank The Mailman are all friendly so they won't make fun of us to our faces. I am excited about the project, but also wish we could move in without spending a couple of months living out of boxes. Oh well, I'll just have to pray for patience and hope that Denver works as fast as he say's he does.

My favorite parts about our new place? My very own washer and dryer. A peaceful and quiet neighborhood. The big tall trees lining the street. A room in the basement that is dedicated to the storage of gear. And bright sunshiny rooms.

The carriage house which is slated to become a studio apartment.


  1. It's ADORABLE! If this whole OC thing doesn't work out, Adam and I might come camp in your Carriage house. :)

  2. Wow! It looks really neat in the pictures.

  3. Very Nice! The details are sweet and it looks a lot cleaner than your old apartment! Mom and I can't wait to stay in the remodeled "granny flat". In the meantime, we are waiting for more than 3 pictures...
