We have just entered into an agreement to buy a huge 117 year old house in the City that needs MAJOR renovation.
When I say MAJOR I am not exaggerating!
Here are some pics I took today with my phone-
|Window in the bathroom. Other bathroom pics were too blurry to use due to my holding a screaming toddler who would likely have went straight for the giant hole in the floor where the tub was once|
|This will be the kids room. It is HUGE and adjoins our room. Yes, that is a fire escape you see through the window. At one time this gem was a boarding house!|
|Another view of the kid's room|
|One of the lovely arched windows at the front of the house. This will likely be my sewing/craft room (yeah!!)|
|Same room as above. Isn't that door sweet? (just look past the junk, it's there!|
|Kinda scary steps to the attic rooms|
|Some of the lovely woodwork! Lots of elbow grease and this will be gorgeous!|
|Living room fireplace. Most of the tiles are there and will be replaced.|
|Dining room, looking into the sunroom|
|Kitchen. Hmm, something is missing... Oh yes, a kitchen|
|Fireplace in the Master BR. I am all about this! (that's the door that separates our room from the little kid's room)|
They are astoundingly fantastic and I am forever grateful to them for everything they are doing for us! (I think it helps that we are going to be next-door-neighbors to my brother, Nick!)
We will have all the junk gone, it will be safe for the little ones and we will have at least a basically functioning bathroom and kitchen
As scary as it looks right now, I know in my heart there is a wonderful house just waiting to come out!
I can't wait to start this new chapter!
