Way back in 2011, I painted the biggest room in our house navy blue and gold.
And then 6 months later we were moving to Portland.
So then, let’s see….3 houses later…summer of 2015 (yes that is almost one move every year!) I painted the biggest room in the house navy blue (Benjamin Moore Hale Navy).
And here we are. 6 months later. MOVING TO WASHINGTON STATE.
Now…I am the first person to say that correlation does not equal causation. But I think mayhaps next time I will let Evan paint his own room.
Right now I am in (and have been in) major house fixit mode trying to wrap up projects that I was in the middle of. I’m re-finishing our back deck – almost done! – and I have pretty much all the interior paint done. The outside of the house will be painted soon…we needed to do that regardless.
Evan will be tele-commuting with his new job until school is out in mid-june, so if we pull this off the way it looks in my head, our house will be fixed up and be listed for sale at the end of April, people will want to buy it right away, and then the kids will finish school and we will close the sale and move out shortly thereafter. After that, who knows. We have some temp housing available to us and will be shopping for a house somewhere in Snohomish County, Washington. It’s pretty similar to where we are now. A bit cooler temperature-wise. The mountains are bigger, and it’s closer to the ocean. And Canada.
So that is what we are up to now and will be working with for the next couple of months. I will try to update here as we find out more info!
