as if we needed a reason to work longer hours - or as rod is fond of saying - working smarter -
today we bought a house .. it's a fixer upper .. brick colonial .. built in 1932 .. duplex .. 2 bedrooms 1 bath upstairs and 2 bedroom 1 bath downstairs .. each unit has a sweet little dining room and darling little kitchen .. the upstairs unit has a stairway down the back of the kitchen .. both units have nice old fireplace surrounds for gas heaters .. huge lot .. 93 ft by 200 ft .. big old trees .. an older part of town .. an old 3 car garage with a 1 bedroom garage apartment above ..
i am thinking .. french colonial farmhouse ...
the first thing is to get in and clean and paint .. and remove all the Christmas lights, wires and the satellite dish ..
more pics to come ..
view from the street ..
view from the back of the lot.. near the garage apartment .. looking to the street ..
view from an upstairs window looking across the street to a stately old home ..
well, there is no big front porch .. but there is lots of land for gorgeous landscaping ..
