Urban Or Suburban Part 3: Which House Did We Choose And Where?

I'm super excited to announce that we have chosen the mid-century house in Lafayette to be our new home in California.   Take a mini tour of our yard here  and keep posted for more photos and updates on our pending move.

Moving Mode: Backyard Mulch, Black Label and Preparing For Goodbyes.

Moving mode was in full swing this past weekend after making the decision to list our house a week earlier than anticipated.  Both Saturday and Sunday were spent mulching, receiving impromptu guests, toasting the upcoming move, and preparing to say goodbye to the house we love so much.

Late Sunday evening while still moving mulch around, I took a moment to look back at the house and this is what I saw:  a beautiful house that has given us, our families and friends much enjoyment.  Wish us luck, the house will be officially on the market tomorrow!

Moving Mode: Before And After Exterior Painting

Moving mode is in full swing.  Getting the house ready for sale has prompted a new coat of exterior paint, interior touch-ups, closet clean outs and a fresh layer of garden mulch.  Honestly, all of that would have been done regardless of our move to the west coast.  So, for the next few months that we are still here,  the house will look its best and we will thoroughly enjoy it.  Take a look at the before and after photos of the exterior:
