Our New Home

18th May 2015

For a long time, Joe and I thought this day would never come. And yet, here we are!

This house we decided to build was really the catalyst that prompted us to have the “marriage” discussion.

And now, a little over a year after we met with our builder for the first time, we’ve been married 8 weeks and are officially moved into our first home!

Planning a wedding and building a house at the same time is not something I would recommend doing. Yet, somehow, we managed to do both and still maintain some sort of sanity!

We decided to build in a historic neighborhood in Downtown Indianapolis called Cottage Home. It has a great mix of hundred year old homes and new builds like ours and we could not be happier with the community we are now a part of.

We have only been in the house for a little over 48 hours so there is still much decorating to be done but I figured it was time to share some pictures with all of you who have been asking about it. (Especially you, mom!)

Still deciding if we want to recover the chairs or buy new ones.DSC_0009 DSC_0011 DSC_0012Our future office space.DSC_0015The only guest bedroom we have furnished. At least my prints I bought in Paris years ago have finally found a home!DSC_0021The master bedroom.DSC_0017The master bath.DSC_0023If you look real close, you can see Lucas Oil Stadium from the balcony off our bedroom.

And for the most part, that’s it! All I can say is, it feels good to be home!
