I keep thinking that I’ll start posting something about this house. We have mostly unpacked ourselves and spend a lot of time dreaming and planning about what will happen later this summer. I FINALLY got some of our before pictures together…but not in a way I’d upload to the blog yet.
This morning we woke and switched two of our main 1st floor rooms to see if the set up feels and works better. I think it might. Meanwhile, it is all still wood paneling and doesn’t have the furniture we need and so it all still feels temporary. This summer we’re hoping to renovate the kitchen, laundry/mudroom, dining room, and den/family room. That makes it really hard to settle in a way that feels like home. But deciding what each space is used for will help us in determining which openings are created and which openings are closed when we start the real work.
In an effort to share something, here is an exterior shot. That will all change this summer, too. In addition to structural work on the front and side porch, we’ll be painting the whole thing. Any color ideas for a tudor home? We’re open to suggestions and ideas. Between the old linoleum floors, panelled walls, yellow brick exterior, etc….we’re leaning away from anything brown or yellow these days. 😉
