Our humble abode

Blogfriends, meet our house! I hope you like it as much as we do.

The stats:
  • 4 bedrooms
  • 2 bathrooms
  • 1,465 square feet
  • Built in 1964
Things I love about our new home...

  • FOUR bedrooms
  • Big kitchen with room to add an island
  • Big dining room
  • New carpet and paint
  • Clean
  • Priced at our ideal budget
  • Located just two blocks from the river
Did I mention four bedrooms? We needed three, but this gives us room to grow into for many, many years! There is plenty of work to be done on the house, but the great thing is that none of it is urgent. The current condition of the house is completely liveable so we weren't forced to tackle any major projects before we moved in.

The landscaping needs plenty of help, and we'd like to replace many of the outdated floors and countertops, among lots of other little things (which I'll tell you all about soon enough)!

The appraiser provided us with this floorplan sketch, cool right?! The blue lines are my additions, and I can't tell you how much dorky fun I had doing that.

House tours aplenty are coming your way :)
