Welcome to Our First House

This was our first home as a couple and the first home we had ever purchased. We spent 6 years of marriage here, shared it with lots of family, and brought home 2 babies. The home was a 1980’s duplex that was in need of a good cleaning and some tender love and care. This is where we were first bit by the “DIY Home Reno” bug!

We replaced the “existing” basement suite {which was more or less a utility sink, a broken old fridge and stove} and lived there for 2 years until we had our first son, at which point we moved upstairs. Over time we replaced the floors, doors, windows, reno’d the bathrooms, and eventually gutted the kitchen!

The day we listed it for sale we got 5 offers and sold it on the first day. It felt like a miracle!
