Adventures in Life: Selling Our House

Well, after nearly 7 years of adventures fixing up our little house, we are selling it. Actually, sold it! (After just two days on the market!) Just need to sign the papers at the closing in a few more weeks and it will be done. 

What's next, you ask? That's a very good question. And one that we have a general answer for but not a specific answer. 

General - we are planning on building a house. For a long time we have been wanting more land to use for raising a garden and some animals. 

Specific - we have not purchased the "just right" piece of property to build on yet. But we have our eye on something.

Daniel's parents have graciously opened their home to us and we will be living there until we get all of our ducks in a row. 

You can be sure we will be sharing this next big adventure here on the blog! If you are curious - here are a few before and after pictures of our house. 

Here is the front of the house before and after:

And here is a basement before (actually it's more during than before) and after

This is how the kitchen looked the day we first saw the house, and how it looks now...

And there was a tiny bedroom that we took the walls down and made it into a dining room area in the kitchen...

Our realtor had a professional photographer come and take pictures for the listing - if you are thinking of selling your house I totally recommend doing this! It makes a huge difference! Here are some more of the picture from our listing

It is hard saying good-bye to a place we have spend so much time and energy on, but we are excited to cash in our "sweat equity" and start on our new adventure. 

Stay tuned for updates on our Adventures in Building! 


  1. You all did a great job on your remodel. Looks so nice.

  2. Oh, my goodness, I so well remember following along when you all were doing the basement. The entire house is just lovely and I'm sure the new owners will be so happy there. Hope you all find the perfect spot for your next house.
