Suburban Migration

If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you’ll know that we are in the middle of a whole house renovation.  After 8 years of living in Chicago, we are getting ourselves prepared for the suburban migration.  We love our current neighborhood (Bucktown) so much but in the end, we decided to move for the great schools the suburbs have to offer.

We originally had our hearts set on building a house from the ground up but after almost a year of looking for land or a teardown house, we gave up on that dream.  We decided that it made more sense financially to just buy an older home and completely renovate the inside and update the exterior.  We closed on the home back in October and are knee deep in renovations at the moment.  

Here are some pics from Instagram on the house…
