It took us a year to purchase our first home. Trying to find “the perfect one” we found was impossible. We still admire that sweet house on Union Street (mostly for nostalgic reasons) and when we sold and moved to Denver, we decided to rent from then on. We always talked about the day when we can build a house with character, a house that has a story to tell. Here, join me for weekly (preferably with wine in hand) updates on our housing project, how we are mostly doing it ourselves, and how we (fingers crossed!) survived.
