Finally - photos!!

I finally was able to get into the house and see the finished product! There are lots of things that I am going to have to change...almost immediately after purchasing...however, for the most part, I am pretty happy. The big room with the railing in the slide show is the studio. There are doors leading to storage under the eaves on both sides of the room (hence the little doors!) I think they must not have had any small baseboard heaters in stock since there are huge ones installed everywhere. I am going to have to take those out and put short ones under the windows or my furniture will never fit. There is a shot looking from the living room through the lower floor. In that you can barely see the kitchen chandelier which does not go with the decidedly modern blue pendant lights. I love the carpet. It is a couple of shades of beige/tan and is one of the new short shags. My sister had it installed in her family room about 2 years ago and really likes it. Thankfully, there are ceiling fans in all the rooms upstairs and in the kitchen. Since it doesn't have central air, I am going to try to locate air conditioners in windows that are not "obvious" - like the dining room window, the window in the studio and probably one in the little bedroom in the back of the house. I don't like to see units on the front of a house.





The appraisal will probably be at the end of the week. I hope he likes it!!

Thanks for the peek at your new nest. The kitchen cabinets are lovely, and I even like the blue pendants. Are you going to change them? They seem to coordinate with the stained glass over the door. Upstairs looks like a great sewing area - lucky you! Can't wait to see how you decorate.

Looks like a wonderful place. I love the pendant lights! It will be even better once you move in and make it your own!

Its really lovely. I love the white walls. I'm at a phase where I wish my walls were all white. Not sure why. But I love the clean look. The wood ceiling is darling. Congrats! Its very clean and fresh.

Suzan,

Congrats on the new house. I just came over from Meme's because I am a Realtor and I am always excited when someone buys a house. Yours looks really cute; love the cabinets and the wood ceiling...nice character. I think you need the large baseboard heaters though or at least have a HVAC guy look at them. I am assuming it is hot water baseboard heat and there are pipes behind the oh so decorative covers. At least in New England they usually span each outside wall. Just keep your furniture a couple of inches away and you will be fine.

Stop by and visit sometime.

Never mind...now I am reading the older post and find you have electric heat. When will I learn to read first and then comment??

This probably sounds crazy but I love the bi-fold closet doors. They aren't run of the mill doors. Also like the window over the front door.

Congrats on a lovely home! I can't wait to see what you do with it.
