Hi!! We’re so glad you stopped by small house, big city.
This is the story of Matt, Sarah, and Stella’s home-owning adventures: small house, big city.

One day, in the spring of 2012, Matt, Sarah, and Stella began looking at houses. Old houses, new houses, city houses, country houses, large houses, and small houses. One house stood out from all the others. It was not the biggest house, the prettiest house, the nicest house, nor the most expensive house, but it was THE house based upon gut-instinct and instant attachment.
So Matt, Sarah, and Stella, began driving by THE house on a daily basis and dreaming of all that it could be, all that it could do, and how it would become a part of their small family.
After deliberation combined with the frustration of buying a house, it was theirs.
And it needed WORK, lots of work, and love.
So this is the story of the small house’s progress, triumphs, failures, and everything in between.
