Our names are Adam & Joelle. We have two overly energetic boys (7 and 11) and we made aliya at the end of 2009 moving directly to Ma’ale Adumim.
Up until now we have been renting, but we have just signed a contract to purchase our new home. The home we are purchasing is about 30 years old and needs to be completely renovated – including the plumbing and electrics. We are expecting the contractors to be in the house for at least 6 months before we can move in.
The idea behind this blog is to invite you to participate in our goal of creating our own home in Israel and to encourage you to see how we (hopefully) avoid the many pitfalls associated with home purchase and construction in Israel. When we make both minor and major mishaps – you will have the ability, in our hindsight, to avoid making the same mistakes 🙂
We hope that you enjoy this blog and hope that you find it useful. Please feel free to share this with anyone that may be interested and also to make any comments that you wish.
Adam & Joelle Shenker.
