We bought a house!

Yup, a real house.

Jeff and I have been sort of thinking about buying a house for a while now, but we really like our apartment so we didn't feel that much pressure to move. We spent the last year looking at viewpoint off and on, just to see what was out there. Our big dream was to live somewhere close enough to work so that we could continue to walk.

We found the little charmer you see above with the help of our awesome agent, James. We only saw two houses! It is in the North End, which we love, and it has a pretty decent size backyard (for the city), which is an added bonus. The house is super cute on the inside and it oozes with charm, which I am a total sucker for. Of course, it is 80 years old so it has a few quirks -- we already have a few projects lined up. All in good time, of course.

Moving day is just around the corner and aside from filling up our house with boxes, I haven't done very much yet. I can't wait to get into our new place and make it feel like our home.

I can't wait to share more pictures with you when we actually get in there.




  1. Noo way!! Since I moved to Halifax I have dropped by your blog now and then... but this post really got my attention! My husband and I have been lusting over this house since it went on the market. At least it found a lovely little family!!

    Gotta admit, I'm pretty jealous!


  2. It is pretty cute, huh. Sorry we snapped up "your house"! Did you see the one on Rector St? It is a little bigger than ours and has a nice big basement and a nicer yard. Neighbourhood BBQs? Do it!

    Welcome back to Halifax!


  3. Your house is simple but very appealing! Of course, who wouldn't wan to live in an accessible workplace? You have to thank James for doing his best in searching the house around that fit your needs. Good luck with the move and your projects too. Congratulations!

    1. Thanks Madalyn. We are really excited to move. James is an awesome agent and I highly recommend him if you need to buy or sell a house. Thanks for the note of encouragement!

  6. Is it just me, or does your house looks like a robot’s head? Wait, just to clear that up, I think it’s cool! Have you moved in yet? I can’t wait to see the inside of the house! Keep us posted, Emily!

  8. Artkin -- you want to see photos of inside? I can arrange that.
