A little piece of history

Well, it's official! We can finally announce our big news.

Matt and I just made the biggest purchase of our lives (thus far), and we are happy to say we bought a little piece of history.

We have been wanting to buy a place for a while now, but things just didn't seem to be working out for us. Also, Matt and I have completely different tastes when it comes to properties. He likes unique ... I like new.

So we thought we'd compromise.

It was brought to our attention that the historic Town Hall in Conestogo was going up for sale, so Matt jumped on it.

I'll be honest, I never thought it would go through. But for whatever reason, everything continued to line up and we are now the proud owners of the Conestogo Town Hall.

We have a lot of work ahead of us, as we are renovating it for us to live in, but when all is said an done, it is going to be an awesome spot. Unique for Matt and new for me, as we will be completely gutting the place and working nonstop to get it finished and updated for a modern feel.

The township has given the hall a "Heritage Designation", therefore we won't be changing too much on the outside, but we get full reign on the inside.

Words cannot describe how excited we are to move to Conestogo!

We'll be posting pics along the way.

Check out the press release the Township of Woolwich wrote about the purchase:

Wish us luck!
