catch the wind in donovan

As I mentioned last week, we recently put our house on the market. So much has happened in the last two weeks alone, but you will have to wait a few more days until I divulge what exactly that entails. Until then, here is the last home that we looked at. It was an acreage located in Donovan, SK. 

So why didn’t we buy this one? Well, it was 30 minutes from the city, almost half of which was on a poor highway. While it was classified as an acreage, it was actually less than 1 acre and was located in a small town. Everything in the house needed to be updated, and it was probably about $50,000 overpriced. It just wasn’t for us. However, there were two good outcomes with seeing this property. One was that we would never have discovered the auction that was happening in a small nearby town. The other was that it was our first time seriously considering living south of the city. This latter point relates directly to my future announcement. Stay tuned, friends!
