Greetings from The 256 Project! After several years of living in New York City and much contemplation about our future, we decided to make the big decision to buy our first home. And to move to the suburbs. After just two house hunting days and one open house, we put an offer on and got this tiny little cottage in a New Jersey suburb of NYC.
This is a photo of us on our closing day, two days before Christmas 2014. In the weeks following, we have spent many an hour fixing faucet leaks, patching holes, tearing down and taking apart things we don’t like, painting and unpacking. And there is so much more to go.
As first time homebuyers with minimal DIY know-how, this should make for a very interesting process.
