Here it is, the master bedroom reveal! Better late than never, right? So this wasn’t the grand reveal I was hoping for, but I still love the new look. As you can see, I’ve been absent since Week 4 of the ORC and here is why…. You ready for it??
WE ARE MOVING!!!! 😆
In the middle of all the renovation chaos, we were like “I kind of think we should go look at this historic home”, and by we I mean my mother-in-law and me! (We are trouble when we are together) Next thing you know, we listed our house for sale and had a full price cash offer on the sixth day on the market. Can you believe that?!?! During the listing period I also took on renovating our master bathroom and half bathroom as well… Do you see now why I haven’t been posting on the blog? 😅😂
The flooring did not come in time, which ended up being a blessing in disguise. We were originally just going to replace the flooring one room at a time. If I had started that, I would’ve had to come up with $$$$ to finish it and then install it myself! The timing would not have worked out, so thank you shipping delays!! The beams didn’t show up till reveal day so I’m just going to take them to our new house and find a place for them there.
Why We Are Moving
We decided to move for several reasons. The first being that this property is just not suitable for our horses. I have nowhere to work them and they have no pasture. When we bought this house last year, I didn’t realize that the pasture was not safe for them (Rookie). Second, we don’t have the money to hire a crew to maintain a proper fire break around the house, so Josh has been doing this all by hand.
The land is too steep in most areas for our tractor to get to. I tried helping him this spring but I am severely allergic to poison oak and had a huge break out that required four weeks of steroids. As Ella gets older, she has become so attached to her “Nini” (grandma), and we want to be closer to her.
I will miss our incredible views on top of our little Madrone Mountain but I am VERY excited for our next adventure. Flipping this house in one year provided us with this opportunity to move into a gorgeous little farmhouse less than a mile from our beloved Nini and Pops.
Let my DIYs be a lesson to you all. Sometimes, when you put in a little (or a LOT) of elbow grease, it pays off in the end and opens bigger and better doors for you. You just have to jump in and do it!
