New Townhouse - First Glimpse!

Tumultuous . . . I love the sound of that word as it just rolls off the tongue . . .

as in . .

tumultuous |t(y)oōˈməl ch oōəs; tə-|adjectivemaking a loud, confused noise; uproarious tumultuous applause.• excited, confused, or disorderly a tumultuous crowd figurative a tumultuous personal life.
That just about describes what life has been like for us this year . . .
For those of you who have been paying attention, we started last fall (Autumn 2011) with an attempt to sell our home and downsize to something smaller.  We wanted the ability to more easily visit our children and grandchildren who live in Raleigh NC, Columbus OH and Denver CO.  Less home, space and yard to maintain with just the two of us here (and one big black labradaor retriever), having children who are not able to visit on a frequent basis.
THEN - we decided to take the home off the real estate market and make some home improvements with the New Year (2012) and relist the home for sale in the Spring.  (See FLICKR slideshow for the whole process!)  And THAT is exactly what we did, and it sold and we built a new cute little townhouse for just the two of us and the big black labrador retriever, AND with just enough space that when everyone comes to visit - we can still be quite comfortable!  
And here . . .
is the first glimpse . . .
of the finished product . . .

And finally . . .
We are loving it . . .
But we sure miss the mowing, the yard trimming, the daily weeding, the raking of the leaves,
preparing the garden for winter . . .
NOT
:D
