I brought a house this week! A little blue house by the sea.
It’s on a new development and, as the houses on it are being released slowly and selling quickly, I’ve been missing out on chances to secure one of the houses for months. I grabbed my chance this week.
The house itself is still being built and will be ready around May/June next year. It’ll look a lot like this:
For now, though, it looks like this:
There’s a large part of me that’s nervous. The thought of being “tied down” has always worried me but, that said, I’ve noticed a shift in my attitude this past year or so.
I’ve never appreciated my home town as much and have really begun to realise just how much of a treasure long term friendships/experiences are. It feels like it’s the right time for me to put down roots.
The excitement of being a future home owner has brought my creative side out of hiding, too. I’ve been browsing life style blogs, buying magazines, and planning on hand making a few bits and bobs. I’m happy that I’ll get to have some input in the build process and to have my home looking exactly as I wish it to.
I can’t wait to watch as my little blue house rises from the rubble.
