Come on in, Ya'll! Welcome to our Spiffer Upper!
So, here we are. Right in the middle, not in the city and not in the country, but in... the suburbs.
Gulp. How did we end up in No Man's Land?
When we got back from Copenhagen we needed a place to land and to register our kids for school. The first thing we did was choose their schools. We searched for the highest rated schools we could find and rented an apartment there. We took another four months to re- familiarize ourselves with the area (we are from Atlanta!), get the kids started in school, and house hunt.
The kids fell in LOVE with their schools, their new activities, and their friends. So, our first priority became keeping them in their school district.
When we chose our spiffer-upper the main criteria we hoped to satisfy was: open and spacious rooms, budget for personalization, abundant light, and a backyard for soccer playing and gardening. Would we have loved old hardwood floors and craftsmen style details?
Yes, but we can add character. And we can't wait to show you how!
With our closing date coming in less than two weeks (if everything goes without a hitch!) we will be making over this lovely spiffer upper which is currently owned by a lovely elderly couple who has quite an eye for asian art and luxurious antiques...
