More Photos

January 7th, 2009 at 07:00 am

Okay, so some of our photos from when we were looking to buy this place didn't turn out. Big windows full of light mean everything else looks dark in the photos. So the first photo is from after painting with the curtains in. Since the curtains are shut, it gives you a good idea how long our windows are. For height, this particular one is only 40 or so inches, the one on the other side of this room is 67 inches tall. Oh, this photo only includes maybe a quarter of the room.



Second shot is better at showing the true color. Believe it or not, we are glad we did such a dark color. Without it, the room would not ever be referred to as cozy (too large and too bright).



Third photo is of us tearing out the self adhesive lineoleum tiles. That took hours upon hours. Goo be gone did a fantastic job of getting the goo up afterwards though.



Fourth is of the yard. One of the fruit trees is in the photo. This is about half the yard.



This is another architechural detail I love. The linen closet behind is very handy as well. And yes, all the walls were very dirty before we moved in.



Last but not least. See the pretty hardwood floor. See the ugly blue paint splashed on the self adhesive tile. *Sigh* This is a typical example of the type of things we had to fix (and are still fixing).



Enjoy!

    This house will be so pleased to have you give it love...it a house can "feel". What are you going to do with all that sand in your backyard?

    Love that doorway! It is such a cute house~! And I love the ornagey paint. Very nice!

    Yeah I know on the sand. I suspect we will have a lot of plants that like sandy soil. Landscaping will be our next big hurdle. We need to do lots of it, including tearing out a sprinkler system in the front yard that isn't connected to anything and regrading the front so that the water drains away instead of toward the house. I suspect we will begin on things starting this month.

    I like the color of the first room!

    Yeah the color is a chewy caramel and my microfiber couch that looks like suede matches it beautifully. Its hard to get the color accurate though in the photos because the amount of light dramatically alters its appearance.
