Here's the main reason why we decided to make a second-storey addition on our house: a new addition to our family. Her name is Leah, but I usually call her "Bean".
Bean is pretty happy most of the time, because she doesn't have to worry about renovating a house, or work, and stuff like that.
Bean got off to a pretty rough start in her little life but we're super fortunate to have the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) here in Ottawa, and a world-class team of neonatal intensive care, cardiology and surgical specialists. Bonus that we live only 5 minutes away.
This picture is in the house while we wait for final permit drawings and approvals. Once they're done we'll have to move out to a rented apartment. Bean is doing just fine now.
