I have to confess. I just love this house. It has some beautiful architectural detail and even though the floor plan is 120 years old, it has great 'bones' for modern day living. I've been spending a LOT of time with my favorite CAD program, trying to finalize the layout and there are many options (but more about that in another blog post). But here's a look at what we're starting with:
The front entry way. Look at that newel post!!! At last, real architectural detail that's original to the house.
Here's the view to the Living Room.
Looking toward the front of the house.
The Kitchen. Love that beam....although it can't be original. The saw marks don't jive with 1892. But it adds so much character to the space.
The back room. The previous owners said they didn't really use this room. It was way too drafty and cold in the winter (more about that later). And there are some structural issues we have to deal with - not to mention a staircase that's seriously out of code. But it's a great space and we can't wait to figure out how best to utilize it.
The current master bedroom is a nice sized space with a big closet.
The second bedroom is flooded with light, thanks to these skylights.
This is the future master bedroom. This space has so much potential!!! We're envisioning a tall ceiling, larger window and skylights. It's a good sized space - almost 14x17. We can't wait to see this come together.
This is the only bathroom in the house. It's a big space - almost 10x12. Almost too big, actually, considering the other room sizes. But we love how bright it is, thanks to the giant skylight.
