I've probably talked before about how we ended up building a home so I'll keep it short, but it was actually my husband's idea. I grew up in an older, character home and although it was always in a state of renovation, I liked the idea of buying a do-up and turning it into my dream home, while still retaining the original features. Dean on the other hand wanted a new home. Warm and dry, low-maintenance and designed for the how we like to live, over time this idea started to rub off on me. Once I jumped on board, there was no looking back and I couldn't be happier. Now we fantasise about winning Lotto and building a holiday home. Just last night I was telling Dean about my dreams to build a minimalist Nordic barn-inspired home by the sea! Aren't dreams fun?
I do still love older homes, and if I was in the market to buy one, this listing on Swedish Real Estate site Alvhem Mäkleri would definitely be on the must-see open home list! Freshly painted with new finishes it has a fun, quirky Scandi style that Alvhem is renowned for. I can also imagine that most of our furniture and homewares would fit right in!
