The Eugene House

I was looking back through pictures on Picasa this morning and came across the pictures used to advertise the house we sold in Eugene, Oregon when we moved to Tooele. This was somewhat bittersweet for me. I poured a lot of my soul into that house. It was in terrible condition when we purchased it and we essentially redid it inside and out. It was very different from all the other houses we've ever owned. It was a big, cedar, modern-style home set on a 1/3 acre of old growth forest. The yard had no grass but was beautiful with all the natural vegetation. When we sold the house (finally after months of waiting), a large tree fell on the house the day of closing, as if to stop us from going. It think it appreciated the fact the somebody had loved it enough to make it a beautiful place to live. Well, it only succeeded in stalling the closing for a week while repairs were completed. I hope the new owners appreciate all the blood, sweat and tears that went into making it a beautiful abode. I've placed a slideshow with pictures of the house on my blogspot...

Cool! It was fun to see pics of your house in Eugene after hearing so much about it. I would LOVE to have a backyard that was basically a forest. So beautiful.

Oh, and thanks for the shout out on your blog sidebar! I feel very privileged! (Though I suspect you put it up as an excuse to post my bunny picture...ha, ha.)
