Our next home....?

In March Matt and I visited this house, under the premise of research for Christchurch Modern. Nine months, endless heartache and some horrible negotiations later, we seem to have bought it.

It fits our criteria:
Matt's: 1960s, architecturally designed..
Lil's: a decent garden and enough room for Boo...

...but needs a fair amount of work as it has been more than neglected over the past 10 years.

Most sensible peeps have been telling us to stay away from it and and all the work that needs doing, but we love it too much and so we are going to give it a go. It's either going to be the best thing we ever did, or the biggest mistake we've ever made. Country living has been wonderful, but we both now feel too isolated and there is no way we can do another winter out here.

We shan't be moving for at least another 7-8 weeks, but have started packing like crazy. Bring.It. On.
