March 28th, 2013 Fredrik and I took a massive step, we bought our first home. Sure, it is not our dream home, but we decided to try to enter the market at an affordable level and not get in to debt up to our eyeballs. We wanted something we could renovate that was in a good area, with good transport in the town. The market is down right now, so it is a buyers market and we think we got quite a bargain and think it will pay off in time.

With Fredrik’s skills and connections we thought it could be a great project for us an opportunity to create something awesome and showcase our skills. We have a little renovation experience from renovating a boat in 2012, which we plan to have completely finished by the time we move in. We really like working together and think we are a good team, Fredrik can build just about anything and I am the one who is planning, budgeting and trying to keep things on track. Some might say I am the boss (or b*tch… it depend who you ask).

The structure of the house is in good shape, it is build in the 50’s and the layout is very closed and old fashioned, plus it is WAY too brown and the wood panels make me quiver. We have big plans… WATCH THIS SPACE.

We get the keys on June 31st, so our next few blog posts will be about our plans. Then once we get the keys, the real blogs will start, we hope to share the transformations, how to’s, ups and downs. There will be plenty of drama to share, everyone who knows me is expecting that!!
