Closing Day on our First Home

September 14th, 2009 — what a big day for us — we officially closed on our first home!! We were official residents of Beaver Dam. Who would have ever thought that would happen? Update since original posting – Brian French of French Real Estate sold us this first home. When we were ready to list it for sale in 2015, Brian was the Realtor we called. He did a great job and got our house sold fast! To find properties that are just right for you can be difficult if you don’t know where to look. Nonetheless, with the right real estate agent, anything can be possible, and you will find what you are looking for! Which reminds me, a friend of mine recently recommended Reali to me. Their website is a fantastic resource if you are interested in real estate opportunities or are looking to buy or sell a home.

Graham was now only three minutes from his new office and Jen was beginning her new adventure as a small business owner. That meant the first big project — finishing the walk up attic into her very own studio!

Although we promised ourselves we would work on only one project and one room at a time, we soon found that we were going to have to make some very, very minor updates (mainly painting) to make the bathroom and kitchen a little easier on the eyes! Although, we have been thinking about having a full bathroom remodel just so we won’t have to worry about this room for a long time. We’re not quite sure yet, it might just need a lick of paint, but a full makeover is definitely something we’re considering. For example, I have already spotted a gorgeous new bathtub. Plus, I would love to get a double sink vanity unit fitted as the bathroom is a very generous size. Of course, if we are to go ahead with these plans then we will definitely need some help from a plumber. Which reminds me, one of our friends has told us to get in touch with Sharp Plumbing & Heating so that we can get a quote. Accordingly, you can learn more about how a plumber can turn your bathroom remodeling dreams into a reality here: sharpplumbing.com/service-areas/hudson-ma/.

Anyway, the first night was very interesting….we got just a couple hours of sleep as all the new noises kept us up. Our cat was also completely freaked out — he actually crawled under the covers in our bed (which he NEVER does) and slept right up close to Jen’s legs.

He also did not want to come down the stairs after Jen had carried him up there — he was terrified of the living room at the bottom of the staircase (we had to lock him in this empty room while we moved boxes in and therefore, he hated the room and its lovely green carpet!).
