I promised you more pictures of the house this week so here is the best picture I have of each room and I’ll try to explain how it flows along the way.
Climb the front steps, walk across the porch and through the front door to the living room.
The living room comes with a fancy fire machine, a pocket door to the right leads to the first bedroom, and wide arched doorway leads to the dining room.
In the dining room, we turn to the right to see the doorway leading to the second bedroom, and the door to the kitchen can now be seen to the left.
The doorway from which we entered the kitchen is just to the left of the furthest cabinet on the left of this picture. The stove works and the oven only works on broil, which probably explains the pots and pans they left behind. There is also some cereal in the pantry which is on the wall to our right. To the left of the pantry is the fridge and then the door to the laundry room. Behind us is the weird little hallway nook.
This is a picture of the backyard, taken from the sidewalk beside the house. It has a driveway leading to it and as you can see, it’s big enough for a couple cars OR to be used as a yard.
Ok. So that’s the whole left side of the house. I’m going to take you back to the front of the house to show you the right side.
This is the first bedroom. The wall cut beside the left closet leads to a doorway to the second bedroom. The pocket door from the living room is behind us.
The second bedroom is about the same size as the first. Behind us is the door going back to the first bedroom, to our left is a door to the dining room, and where you can see the flooring change is a door to what I’m calling the weird hallway nook. To the left of the nook is the kitchen, to the right is the hall bathroom, and straight ahead but slightly to the left so you can’t see it is the third (primary) bedroom. I know, I’ll need to work on the bedroom names.
This is the hall bathroom. The toilet is to the left and a small sink and vanity is to the right. Love the fake stained glass.
This is the primary bathroom. Nothing special but it gets the job done with the tub/shower to the right and the toilet to the left.
So that’s the grand tour.
My initial work is going to focus on replacing missing siding, fascia board, soffits, and crawlspace covers. I also need to fix the porch decking and broken windows. And likely build some beefier pillars for the porch. I’ve also been debating painting the exterior because it’s ugly AF but can’t decide what colors I want.
On the interior I need to paint the ceilings, get the ducts cleaned, and replace some missing vent covers. And likely replace the squishy flooring in the primary bathroom. And buy some appliances.
And then furniture…
