So we have been trying to sell our Duplex for a while now. We were hoping that we could keep it when we moved up north, but it was hard to manage from so far away. So we decided to sell it. We had to put a TON of work and money into it before we could put it on the market. And by we, I mean Rob. He put so many hours and so much hard work into this place!
When everything finally aligned and we had a closing date (after lots of delays and setbacks) I started to feel a little bit sad. This was our first home. We lived here for about six years. We moved in just a few weeks before Sadie was born and we moved out when Emery was 15 months or so. Now Sadie is seven and a half! Lots of memories at this house. So we decided to come visit the duplex on Memorial day, the day before we were going to close on it. It was good to say goodbye and take a few pictures before it was not ours anymore.
This is the mailbox Rob built when the mailman told us that we weren't allowed to use the mailbox on our house anymore. It is still standing...pretty impressive. Rob is such a handyman!
Here the kids are in the backyard. This was such a great backyard. Great for exploring and adventures. We found lots of sticks, had lots of gardens, and found lots of snakes in this backyard.
Our front room. I wish it had looked like this when we lived here! ha ha
Riley liked the new carpet.
The kitchen that we made lots of cookies in, and hand washed a lot of dishes in, and ate many a family dinner in. I LOVE the new flooring in here. Wish I could have enjoyed that while we lived there.
The kids loved sliding down the railings on the stairs.
THe view from the kitchen to the backyard. Something that I am going to miss is the amazing shed that Rob built with his dad. I just think it is so cool that they started with nothing and ended up with this awesome shed.
This is the new electrical box that we had to pay for. I hope it works well for the new owners.
One last family picture before we head out. Good bye duplex! (Thanks to that mailbox Rob built so many years ago, we were able to balance the camera on it and set the timer. Pretty amazing that we are all looking and smiling.)
While I make it sound like we are going to miss this place a lot, the last few months have mostly made us feel like Rob's face is in the picture above. So many setback and repairs that we needed to do and lots of money put into this place. What a headache! While we will miss this place a little bit...we mostly feel like this about getting it sold:
