Our house is a cute little 2/1, with a front porch, and a side deck, and a non-working, cute little fireplace. It was built sometime in the early 1900's, although we don't actually know when. The owner claims that it was even a speakeasy at some point during the Prohibition Era! How crazy awesome is that?! And get ready to be shocked, because it's a very bright color. But it's just so ME, and I actually love it! I don't think I would ever choose to paint my house this color if I owned it, but I actually really like it the way it is right now, and can totally handle it for our rental house.
|It has two front doors, because it was originally built to be a duplex.|
And now for some photos of the inside. Keep in mind we took these the day we first went to go check it out, so it's basically completely empty, with the exception of the tools and supplies of the property manager, who was still doing some touch-up work on it...
|Living room, with "other" bedroom behind it. (This will be craft room/office/twins' room when they visit)|
|Other corner of the living room, with my car through the window :)|
|Through that doorway is "our" bedroom, and the doorway behind that leads to the closet & bathroom.|
|Our bedroom, closet/hallway thing, and bathroom in the back.|
|Other side of our bedroom.|
|Laundry room/mud room that is next to the bathroom, & behind the "other" bedroom.|
|View from the laundry room, through the "other" bedroom, to the living room.|
|This is (most likely) the original window hardware from the early 1900's!|
|Cute little (non-working) fireplace - can't wait to decorate this all cute for fall with pumpkins and stuff!|
|Panoramic of living room and half of kitchen. Oh, and I love those built-in bookcases!!|
Thanks to my Uncle Keith for letting us borrow his big ole' truck to bring everything in!
|There's no pantry, so Jeff put a back on one of my bookshelves, and we turned it into a pantry!|
|Hand-me-down table and chairs that we're going to fix up. Probably going to have multi-colored chairs!|
|Little bookshelf pantry :) We might eventually put curtains on the front to keep it neat.|
|Panoramic view of the kitchen.|
So glad we found this cute little place of ours!
