Five months after buying the house, it’s now time to get this knockdown show on the road. How freaking exciting!!!
We were lucky to have found a tenant who only wanted a short term lease. He moved in straight after settlement and moved out last Friday – a week before the demolition contractor starts work.
So, after the school run on Friday afternoon, I made a quick dash to the real estate agent to pick up the keys. With three excited girls in tow, we finally had a good proper walkthrough around the house. I wanted a record of the old house before it makes way for the new dream home. I can’t wait for the transformation to begin. Playing the waiting game has been agonising especially during this last bit of admin.
As I mentioned in this post, we have an abundance of fruit trees in the garden. We took home a basket full of oranges and I made a couple of batches of orange and poppy seed muffins and freshly squeezed orange juice. Yum!!!
We also took a stroll around the neighbourhood and met the neighbours as we had to give them notice at least 7 days before demolition starts. We have wonderful and friendly neighbours and we fell in love with our street even more. It really felt like home!!!
