One thing that is often top of mind when you are buying a new home, is that you will be selling your old one. So, what to do when your brand new home isn’t so “brand new” and requires a major reno? You may need a place to temporarily rest your head like we did when our house on Dryden sold so quickly we couldn’t believe it. Now, our “new” home on North isn’t close to being finished. Here’s what we are up to!
Our Dryden House
We’re currently displaced and living that loft life while we’re renovating our new home, the Boulevard Show House. And do you want to know the most unexpected part?…We don’t have doors on either of our two bedrooms! Yes, you read that right. We’re living in a loft with twin 5-year-old girls and don’t have any doors. Didn’t see that coming, did you!?
I bet you thought I’d share something totally random like my never-ending chair collection (hello, storage unit!) or a wild piece of art (don’t worry, there will be lots to share when our new home is completed!) but for now, we’re just living with half of our lives in boxes in a loft with no doors, counting down the days until we feel settled and at home in our new place.
It’s definitely a big change in our lifestyle but, fortunately, it won’t last forever. Michael and I truly appreciate and understand what many of our clients experience during the transition from one home to the next. A complicated build or renovation can often displace a family for months or even years, but knowing that we’re creating our forever home makes the whole thing so worth it!

Luckily, the anticipation and excitement of designing a new house keeps my mind preoccupied. So in the meantime, I’ll continue to keep myself busy working on more sneak peeks of the house to share with you. If you haven’t already seen them, be sure to check out the sneak peeks of the foyer & stairway, family room & playroom and of the pool cabana.
