‘Mac’s’ Possession Appearance

December 1st, the day that our second house, officially became ours!

We are so thankful to the Lord for opening up this opportunity for us and those who supported us getting here πŸ’•πŸšπŸ› βœ”οΈ

Before ‘Mac’ was ours, we actually helped the previous owner get rid of some things, after I got to go through and pick out things I’d like left, if he was no longer interested in owning them πŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸ»

Mike took multiple truck boxes and half cabs, full of throw away items to the dump, before I went over and helped fill up another.

Three loads later and the living room and guest room were emptier than before no doubt, but still no where near being emptyπŸ˜¬πŸ™ˆ

So, now I will show you what you may have been seeing peeks of on my and my husbands Instagrams…the full β€˜Before’ tour 😁

The previous owner of the house, had lived there his whole life, along with his wife, until she became sick and passed away.
Thus leaving him by himself and everything just majorly got away from him.
He has already told us he hopes to see the house once we are done with it, because he believes we will do some big things.
I sure hope so πŸ˜‰πŸ‘πŸ»

– Viewer digression is advised if states of unsanitary living cause distress –

The view from the street. It’s a short walk away from our house.

The back and main entry.

The door you come in currently enters straight into the kitchen.

An upside is the kitchen has a lot of natural light…once nature can get in from behind all the things in its way πŸ€ͺ

From the kitchen you see the opening into the living room. We hope to remove the whole wall that the fridge and stove areΒ on.

The living room…

The hallway leading to the two bedrooms and one bathroom.

The bathroom. He hadn’t had hot water for the last couple years, mainly because he didn’t feel like paying to get it fixed.


The master bedroom.

The ‘guest room’. So if Mike is inviting folks out to see us, I may think twice if I were you 😜

At one point, he had three cats living inside, which he never allowed to go out. Their main domain seemed to have been the basement.

So, there you have it!

I would say more about it all, but I believe this is truly one of those situations where, ‘the pictures speak for themselves and they say a lot…

We have been in it multiple times, sorted and thrown out SO much, seen it all repeatedly and yet STILL we are nearly everyday in awe of the condition the whole house was in.

Wish us luck 😬

Hello humans 😊 This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life 😊

    1. Haha, sorry for the uncomfortable read πŸ˜‚ I feel like I’m going to have wrinkles by the time it’s cleaned out, just from the face of disgust/cringing at everything πŸ€ͺ😬 Thanks for the belief and luck πŸ˜‰
