After weeks of waiting to make it blog official, I can finally tell you – we’re moving! It’s hard to make that statement exclamatory, because although we’re excited to be custom building a house, we haven’t been just dying to leave this one, either.
I know I’m going to be emotional when we hand over the keys in a few weeks. This was our first house. It’s the home that has seen our family grow from three to six – the only home my daughters have ever known, and the only one my son remembers.
Many memories reside within these walls – cherished moments we’ll never get back. I have loved living here, and still do, and yet I know it’s time to move along.
The kids are excited, too. They like the idea of making a house look just how we want it – and of having a little more space in their corner of the world.
The coming weeks will see us moving into a rental home, finalizing design decisions for the new home, and watching construction begin. It seems like one of those things that ought to feel surreal, but it doesn’t… yet. Right now it just feels real and right.Have you ever sold a house or built a new one? What advice can you share? We’re learning as we go!
