A fresh start

Meet our new, old house,  an East Coast Canada fixer-upper on one and a half acres complete with barn and a couple of small outbuildings. We hope this will be a labour of love but we are bracing ourselves for the unwelcome surprises and hidden costs that come with long-neglected centenarian houses. When the going gets tough we will look to the water and remind ourselves that our view stretches beyond this pretty Nova Scotia inlet to the times when we will welcome friends and visitors to our Blue House, Red Barn home.

You’re welcome to join us on this renovation journey. We promise to share all of the tribulations and triumphs, our best ideas and our god-awful ones, our inspiration and our frustration.
