The New House

Backyard
That up there is the view from our first house's dining room!

Sometime around the post on our last apartment going up, we bought a house! No more moving! (Except, perhaps, in 5 years, depending on how things play out).

The House.

It is a time capsule from the late 1940s, with a healthy amount of wallpaper. Some is metallic wallpaper, which means it's so old it's coming back into style. Although, it's also so old that it's cracked, peeling, and desperately faded.

The house has tons of space (2000+ sq ft) and the most amazing view from the backyard. It also happens to be biking distance from my workplace. Which means that, aside from being a ton of work, it's absolutely fantastic.

Plenty of sunlight and space for a garden (which is now overgrown), and even well-established peonies in the front yard! The first time J mowed, it took 4.5 hours to trim the whole acre...

Oh my gosh it's beautiful! Those vintage bathrooms! I'd be tempted to leave them exactly as they are. Was that baby blue tile I saw in one photo? Anyway, congratulations you two. This is very, very exciting (says the woman who has been renting since 2005).

Oh my gosh, I am swooning over those stairs. And the phone spot at the bottom. And the wardrobe in the closet. It's gorgeous! I can't wait to see what you do with this place.
