First of all … HAPPY CANADA DAY! I am very proud to be Canadian and can’t wait to celebrate with my little family today!
On this beautiful July morning, I think it’s time I introduce you to our biggest project yet … Project Cameron Street! A few months ago, we got the keys to a soon-to-be-gorgeous home. Being a Realtor and having a better-half that LOVES renos, it was hard for us to not jump on the opportunity of flipping this 4000 sq-ft duplex standing in front of the beautiful Victoria Park. Our plan: to make it into one big beautiful home for our family. But there’s major work to be done, lots of people to talk to and… we also sold our old home so … (insert suspense music) … we are also living in this big beautiful project (this is me trying to be super positive!!) Here’s a picture of the before … like my optimistic partner likes to say: “You need to be able to see the potential”!
That being said, we are loving the experience! I mean, it’s not always easy sleeping in the same room with two little boys who think this is JUST AWESOME and that bed jumping has become their national sport … no matter what time of day (or night) it is. And, the fact that I am pregnant with our third child, I can’t help as much as I would like to (but I do lots of shopping hihihi). But, things are moving along, walls are starting to go up and soon enough, the boys will have their room (and us too!)
I can’t wait to show you pictures and talk about this project more! It is our biggest flip yet, but it is also a great bonding moment for our family and an experience we will talk about for a long time.
For now, I am just going to step outside with my coffee on this beautiful Canada Day and enjoy the amazing view!
