The 2017 Project



Happy new year!!! Wow I can't believe we're already halfway through January. Most of our holidays guests have left and I'm already back at work - it really feel likes Christmas and new year are a distant memory. If things continue like this then 2017 will fly by.

I have a super strong feeling that this year is going to be a great one for the house, with loads of projects on the cards. The main one is the desolate backyard, which has irked me for years. It hasn't been worth doing anything on it because it was going to be carved up during the subdivision process, so a drain could run the length of it and the neighbour's yard. The awesome thing is, this was completed late last year and so now this blank canvas is ready! So excited!



The backyard design was done long ago and while I still love it, it may need to be revised for budget and time constraints.  You see, the other big news is that we 'may' be selling the house. Yes, *sniff*, we may put the house on the market later this year.  This is actually not big news to us, as it was always in the plan. My son was just 11 when we bought the house and we bought it mainly because it was in a developing area and close to his school. It was always the long term plan that we would develop the block and stay until he finished high school. Well, he graduated late last year and the time has come.

The loose plan is to finish the backyard and put the house on the market when the time feels right. There's no hard deadline, however going forward we are looking for the next development, whether it's building a new house or renovating an older one, it's not really one we can plan for until we find the right project.

So there you have it, 2017 plans in a nutshell. Let's revisit this in December and see how accurate it was!

 Happy 2017 everyone!! xx
