After living in our place for almost three years, we decided earlier this year, that we want this to be our permanent home. Until now, we really debated moving to the suburbs versus staying downtown. There are some things that we know would be easier in the suburbs (think schools), but overall, we are committed to living and raising our family downtown.
With this new level of commitment, we decided that we needed to make a few changes to make this space work for us long term. Obviously, we can't add square footage to our condo unit, but we can increase storage, better utilize our space, etc. In deciding this, we started and finished decorating the kids' room. Next, we started looking at ways to reduce our energy bills, so we started with insulated curtains. In doing this, we decided that we needed to update the master bedroom. Join us over the next couple of months as we finish the master bedroom. We have big plans and ideas, but we will need to save up some money before completing the project, so we'll document step-by-step our projects until the end.
