Bob & Amy's New Old Home

Vancouver, BC, September 15, 2007
Scott and Judy invite me out for a ride in their boat. We have a nice breakfast together and head out. On the way, we stop off to see Scott's daughter, Amy. It's good to see that Scott and Judy are finally starting to act like mature adults. Amy and her husband Bob have just bought a home in Haney. The house itself is old and a bit rugged, but the lot is fantastic. They are in a neighborhood that is up and coming so they will do very well in the future when they decide to sell. Amy says they expect the house to be torn down by whoever buys it next. In the meantime, they are making it a cosy place to live in. You can see the uneven roof from the two additions that were added over the years. One of their first orders of business will be to seal the leaks in this roof.
Here's the view as you come in the front door. The home is small but it still has a spacious feel to it. Amy says they are going to put hardwood floors throughout the house to give it a cottage feel.The ceilings are low but I like the kitchen. It has lots of counter space and a large window looking out to the backyard. I find that all the rooms in their house seem to be big enough to be comfortable for day to day living. I also like the simplicity of the living room. It's simple and elegant. The window looks out to the front yard. I can see that they have their work cut out for them but when it's all done they're going to have a very nice living space. I wish you guys all the best. I know this house is going to turn out to be a very good investment for the future.
