We Bought a House!

CortneyApril 6, 2020

Drumroll please…. WE BOUGHT A HOUSE! Isn’t it exciting? We found the most perfect house for our family and we are so excited to turn it into a home. Best part? We’re taking you along every step of the way.

Pin Now. Read Later. 

Were you surprised with our big announcement? If you follow along on Instagram, you’ve maybe seen some of our house renovations already but with the launch of the new CortneyWheeler.com, I wanted to officially share the news and kick off this fun home series. What a better place to start the journey than by spilling the beans that we bought a house and by sharing a peek inside this pre-renovation beauty?

I’ve included a tour of our future home with all the listing photos and as you’re reading this, our house no longer looks anything like this! Right after we bought our house, we started working on making it our home. A place for us to grow and love, make new memories and spend holidays together, a place to call our very own!

So, now that you know that we bought a house – what else do you want to know? Starting a home series on here was one reason I was so excited to launch our CortneyWheeler.com makeover. I can’t wait to share our renovation plans, inspiration, fixtures and details, furniture, how we decorate and so much more. The possibilities are endless and I love having you along for the ride. I want to know what you guys are most interested in seeing? Leave your ideas, requests and questions in the comments below so I can add it to my list.

Thanks for popping by today, check out a little mini tour of our new house below! I have a new post coming next week with all our reno plans and inspiration, you can subscribe to our weekly newsletter here and never miss a beat! You can also make sure you’re following along on Pinterest as I share even more home content there!

    I absolutely love your new house! It is perfect for you and your family! My son and his family lived,in Chattanooga for a couple of years and still have family there. Did you find this place in the Chattanooga area? My sons work sent him to Georgia so they moved to Cumming, Georgia.
    I loved Tennessee though. I haven’t been to their home in Georgia yet. Best of luck to you and please keep sharing.
    I love to live vicariously though you. But seriously you have done a great job for yourself! Much love!

    So excited for you and your sweet family! The home is beautiful and I can see why you were drawn to it. I too have been following your instagram remodel posts and enjoy seeing the progress and decision making, I think that is the funnest part! My favorite part of a home is the kitchen, pantry & garden! I love entertaining and cooking and I love that it brings everyone together, so I can’t wait to see what you do with those areas! I’m also excited to see the library/reading room you spoke of. Enjoy the process! Stay healthy!

    Cortney, I’ve been watching you for some time now. I’ve bought shoes, a clothes from Jane & Kate’s, and lots of Lange Products and tools. I want to purchase makeup about can’t find out how to order. I don’t know how to pick a foundation color for the stick foundation and have never found a order book on selections or been able to find products you’ve used. Is there a catalogue for the younique items? I am 71 yrs. old and I find it very difficult to order from online or pictures on line (if I find them). I will even join if it means I would get books, tools or whatever you need to sell Younique. I want to purchase make up and tools but find it very difficult. Will you help me please!

    1. Cortney

      April 17, 2020 at 10:02 am

      Hi Paua! I’m sorry you’re having issues ordering makeup! If you will send me a message on Facebook, I’d love to help you find the perfect products. 🙂 Here’s a link to my page: https://www.facebook.com/cortneybwheeler/
