In case you are wondering why there is a flurry of activity at The Acreage its because we are thinking of putting the house on the market in the Spring of 2014 and so we get as much money as possible for this house, we have a few jobs to do to make the house more presentable/worth more money.
What with that and the wonderful weather we have been having it's an ideal time to do some decorating. So now the family room walls has had FIVE coats of paint, but it's now at a point I like it. I want to hold off showing you the after photos as we haven't finished yet and won't be for a couple of weeks as we have decided to invest in a carpet for the family room, as the hardwood floor is from 1974 and it shows!
So why are we thinking of moving.............
There are a few reasons. Health is the main one, both dh and I are suffering with various ailments that makes doing some jobs around here difficult. Going on vacation we realized how much we missed going away. Anyone who owns a house whether it be old or new, knows there is always something needed done on it. However with these old century houses, there is constant maintenance which in turn means constant money being spent. And between me and you, I am getting a tad fed up of having no money due to spending it on the house.
We have not made our mind up 100% yet, but have decided to get some jobs that needed doing done just in case. If we do move we are planning on going back into town. We are staying in the area as we love it up here, I just want dh to have some free time, as at the moment it's all work and no play. Which is no good for anyone.
One thing for sure, if we do move we will dearly miss the view we have:
