I thought I would share a few pictures of the inside of our house from the day we closed. Again, keep in mind, this is what I enjoy to do so yes, I actually did pick this house. My husband was talked into this by my explaining that we would be doubling our square footage, would have closets for everyone, an acre of yard and the big sell... he would no longer hit his head on fixtures or ceiling fans. He's around 6'4 so our 8' ceilings in our old house were miserable for him. Not to mention - this house was a STEAL!
This is our living room on the day we closed.
You can see some of the great features that drew me to this house. The downstairs has all of the original woodwork still in place and it is beautiful, or will be someday.
The original front door from over a hundred years ago is still there.
Tons of windows and tons of natural light. That also comes with tons of windows that need restoring but that's okay. Or at least that's what I tell my husband.
The living room opens up to the dining room. That filthy carpet was thrown away before we ever moved in. But that woodwork is amazing.
This is the other side of the dining room. It has a huge picture window. It is ridiculously large. I believe it is 8 feet tall and 8 feet wide. I don't remember for sure... I just know it took me a million yards of fabric to make the curtains to cover it. Notice the bushes outside the window. The house was so neglected that the bushes were overgrown up to the second story. The pile of junk is the tile and fixtures that I came armed with on day one.
I came with tile and fixtures because of this...
Not only the world's ugliest bathroom... but most disgusting on top of it!
Hard to believe that this is what I asked for isn't it?
Don't worry, the bathroom isn't there anymore. I had it walls and all in a dump trailer by the end of the first weekend.
