I shared the news about our upcoming move in my last post. Now it's time to fill you in on the details of why we are leaving the only hometown we have ever known and are packing up to move to northern Kentucky.
Our daughter and son in law bought a home in Kentucky last year, so of course that played a big part in our decision to move.
We also both recently retired, so our jobs weren't holding us in Wisconsin. But the best reason for our move to Kentucky was finding out we are going to be grandparents this coming June! We are Kentucky bound!
As you probably know, the housing market is crazy and houses sell overnight it seems. We briefly entertained buying an existing home, but decided to build new instead. We decided on a ranch home, which is very different than the two story colonial we have lived in the last 20'years. Not having a staircase will be so nice as we get older. I'm hoping I can figure out how to decorate an open concept home.
This is a picture of the model we chose. It will not be built in this color scheme. I am going to keep the exterior choices a secret for awhile, lol. It is definitely going to be an unexpected color!
The build has been going fast and we are crossing our fingers for a July move in. As you can see, we currently have a roof and windows!
We have a pretty view in our eat in kitchen to look forward to. The patio door will lead to a covered outdoor living space.
In my next post, I think I'm going to share some of the home decor we decided not to take with us and sold at our moving sale.
Thanks for stopping by,
