Camper is Complete


It turns out that I don’t like camping. Well, I wouldn’t say that I don’t like it, since we only did it once. And since it was at our local pool club, where we were 1/4 mile from home, and had electric/bathrooms/kitchen/pool/firepit right there, I’m not sure it really even counts.

We actually had a really great time, we just weren’t using it. So after paying for storage, moving around our driveway, lawn etc. for three years, we finally sold it. I was sad, but I’m happy that she now has a new owner who will enjoy her. BEFORE pics are here. I hope you like the finished product…

A-Frame Family Fun

FullSizeRenderHere’s our new (second) home! Investment, really. But we’ll have some fun in the meantime! Jameson keeps telling me not to get too attached because it’s an investment (he’s been married to me long enough to know that I was attached before we even made an offer!). We have been looking for a small lakehouse near skiing for a very long time. We looked around CT, in NY, in MA, RI, VT, NJ, everywhere! Thank goodness for patient children who don’t mind crazy last minute car ride adventures out of state!

After multiple offers (and multiple heartbreaks, for me) we are the proud new owners of an A-Frame lakehouse in Antrim, New Hampshire! I guess all things happen (or don’t happen) for a reason. We are about 20 minutes past Keene, NH, and about 30 minutes from Concord. We were originally looking in the Sunapee Lakes Region, but on a 2nd trip to that area, Jameson came across this little A-frame house that he wanted to see on the way up. Thankfully the listing agent let us in with just a few hours notice. I bet she didn’t think we’d be the one to buy her listing! We’re still about 30 minutes from Mt. Sunapee, and we’ve had a blast checking out the restaurants and the three nearby ski mountains over the last month!
