Old homes are charming, and ours is full of the good stuff, complete with crooked floors, creaking doors, and water in the basement. I guess I’m just a sucker for that kind of charm. We moved in a few weeks ago and have been busy getting this place together. Some days I still feel very much out of sorts, but maybe that’s just part of the adjustment. Most days, though, I just love it here. It’s kind of my dream starter home, and my sweet family makes this house so warm that I catch myself wanting to have a hundred babies and wake up every day at 5am to bake bread and milk the cows.
Right now, even though we’re still living with empty rooms, blank walls, and tons of projects added to our to-do list each day, it feels like we’re home, finally. I almost don’t want to post pictures yet, because I see everything as it will be, eventually. I’ve got plans that include replacing floors and countertops, tearing down walls, moving the driveway, and building porches. My husband keeps reminding me that we need to replace the roof first, but a girl can dream, right?
Until then, though, it’s still our place to call home, so here’s some of the touches I love most.
kitchen with a peaceful view of our yard & deck
the living room sold this house for me – a big wood burning stove and lots of light
family room & our bedroom. my man’s gonna build me a reading nook with window seat this winter!
first purchase for the house was a hammock. feels like we have a billion trees.
ps please forgive the pool quality of these photos. i’m posting from my back deck, enjoying the sunshine, and using pictures I had on my phone. thanks!
