Welcome Home

138It’s hard to believe how time flies by. It’s amazing that we’ve been living in our house for over eight years now. A lot has changed since 2003. Our oldest child, Ellie, was born only two weeks after we moved in to our house. That was a mad scramble getting the nursery ready. Thank goodness for family. And since then Brandon and Tyler have come along, filling our house with noise (the good kind). We have a lot of great memories in our house.

We’ve done our share improvement projects on the house. From multiple landscaping projects, building a huge 24’ x 14’ deck, adding a workshop and storage off the garage, and finishing the basement – we’ve worked hard and had a lot of fun. And we’ve met so many tremendous people here too. We’ve been blessed with terrific neighbors, many which have become our friends over the years.

Which takes me to the purpose of this post; we have decided to move this year. In late summer/fall last year we decided to build a new house. It’s been a fun process. Part of the process (maybe not as fun) is selling our current house. So yes, this is a shameless plug. We thought we would start with our friends and family. If you, or anyone you know is looking to move, we are proud to share some pictures with you. Please pass along the pictures, and contact us with any interest.

We live in the beautiful Ada Moorings neighborhood, right behind Ada Park. Ada Moorings features a neighborhood playground (5 doors down), and walking/biking trails to the Grand River and Ada Park. A convenient walk to downtown Ada Village. This is in the Forest Hills Central School District.


Living room, with French doors, so could be more private and used as an office, or music room.
