At 2.15pm today our old place became someone else’s. I’ve been sitting on the news of the sale for quite sometime for fear of “jinxing” the whole situation. We’ve been very lucky to have gone from on-the-market to settlement in less than 3 months.
While we are definitely celebrating, it is the first home we owned and finding a few old photos of our renovations left me just a tiny bit sentimental.
I’m so glad that we are going to build now. A new construction is very exciting, but there are a few things from the old place that we loved enough to repeat:
- wooden floors
- bifold doors
- stone bench tops
- a lemon tree
- a big grassy patch for kids
Our best wishes to the new owners.
