Inner thoughts

As we do these renovations to our house, awaiting baby #2 it is becoming apparent that this particular house, is going to get very small, very fast. It's not overly big to start with. But considering that almost every single inch of our house is filled with furniture or toys, it's starting to close in on us.

I'm constantly looking on our MLS website here in Canada. It's the major real estate website for the country. Looking for a diamond in the rough. I'd like to find a house at least 500 sq ft bigger than what we have, and I'd almost like it to be a fixer upper. Not neccessarily something that needs the major components(plumbing,electrical etc)replaced. Rather a place that needs a major cosmetic updating. I love doing flooring and trimwork, building custom shelving and even just changing light fixtures, makes a huge difference in the look of a place.

The other thing I'm looking for is a little bit of property. we currently have a 29ft by 98ft lot. So we're right on top of our neighbors. I'd like a little breathing space perhaps in the country or on a waterfront lot. We've got it pretty good here, because it's a five minute walk from our house down to lake Ontario. It would be nice though to be able to walk outside to a lake that you could go for swim in if you felt like it.

Bit of a rambling blog. It's been hectic around here for the past week. Just throwing out there, what's been going through my head.
