Making a house a home



We are just starting our fifth year in our little house. Ken and I have no plans to move on to something bigger or to a fancier neighborhood. Every year we are able to complete another renovation project and add a few more "permanent" furniture items. We like living close to downtown. Ken is able to walk to work and I am mere moments away from the shops that I prefer for my Interior Design business. Our house was built nearly 100 years ago but it is very solid and should last many more. A small home at 1100 sq feet, it feels good to buck the environmentally disastrous trend of over scaled houses and suburban acreages. Our neighborhood is vibrant with hundreds of young families and a wonderful mix of people and cultures. We love our house. Together Ken and I are making it a home.
