Today we’ve been back in Ottawa for exactly one month. We’ve wasted no time. First, Leon started university. Then I went back to work and we moved the kids back into the house. Last weekend I had the ceiling repaired in the dining room and the upstairs hall painted to get this house ready for sale. All the while, we’ve been looking at houses in this area. After 2 weeks of negotiations, an inspection and more negotiation, we’ve finally got the house we want! Not too big, but certainly roomier with a double garage and a large kitchen/family room facing west. We think it will suit our family just perfectly.
Here are some pictures we took during the inspection earlier this week. You might note that the place is rather messy. You’d think that people would clean up a bit when their house is under inspection. Oh well, it’s not quite mine yet…
Catherine and Leon, It looks lovely. Hope you are very happy here. Sent us a photo of the outside one day too! I will miss Duplante Ave though!
Thanks Donna! We’ll get some more photos up when we can see the house beyond the snow banks. Duplante is a lovely little house, but not for 4 adults. You’ll have to come visit us and use our guest suite in the new house. One thing I am hoping for is to attract some birds to the yard. I miss the magpies. 😦
