I wanted to wait until the house was perfect before posting pictures, but since we live here now, it will never be perfect. Here it is, in all it's lived in glory. Still a few things missing from the walls, things out of place, mattresses on the floor. That said, the movers were only here(breaking our stuff) one week ago. This is the fastest we've ever unpacked and felt somewhat settled. I love this place.
::Right inside the front door. You can't see the giant window in this picture, but it's my favorite thing about the room. The leather chair in the corner: Sean's find at the thrift store, $8. Not sure how much we'll invest in it to fix the springs, but he is bound and determined to fix it himself. We shall see. The man hasn't failed me yet. :D
::Same room, different view. I can't WAIT for the first cold day. That woodstove is going to roar this winter. And by winter I mean anything colder than 60 degrees. This room is an add on to the original house. I can't imagine this house without it!
::The homeowner also added the cabinets and counter on the left side of the picture. That corner is my favorite thing about the kitchen. With all my glass jars in it, it makes me think of a country store. :)
::The last room to be finished, as usual. Our bedroom. We have a dream of finding the perfect bed for the perfect price. We almost broke down and got another IKEA bed, but I told Sean I preferred the floor to another ugly bed that the movers will surely break.
I didn't get pictures of the basement. Think low light, toys, work bench, washer/dryer, extra refrigerator, BOXES, cute little bathroom. Damp, dark wood paneling, typical basement.
I also didn't get pictures of the front of the house or the backyard.
Some things you'll just have to see in person. :)
It's a pretty small house, but so much bigger than it seems. It's simple and I love that. It has so much personality. For the rest of our existence, I will compare every house to this one. I plan to enjoy every bit of it.
