The form of the addition is evocative of a traditional Pennsylvania bank barn structure.A second floor deck, carved out of the copper 'forebay’, is covered with a glass skylight that empties via chain downspouts to river rock drainage beds below.Thank you for all of your kind words about our house. When I started this blog I was never going to show pictures of our house or tell you all exactly how we live, until recently when I have become obsessed with all of the remodeling blogs out there.
I have realized that we are not alone in our love for old homes and wanting to restore them.
Like I have said before, we live in only half of our house right now.
The other half has been stripped to the bare studs (saving that for another post) and is just sitting vacant.
So right now our house consists of two bedrooms, one bathroom, a hallway, and the kitchen.
Since our kitchen is the biggest room (about 18’X18′) that is where we spend all of our time.
Our kitchen is not just our kitchen, it also doubles as our living room, dining room, office, craft room, playroom and even a guest bedroom with Grammy dares to spend the night. Brace yourselves for the “then” pictures, they are REALLY BAD!
When looking back at them I still can’t believe we bought this old house.
I still laugh when I think about the realtor that showed us the house.
The whole time she was trying to talk us out of buying this place. Yup, the baby was sleeping and I was not going to wake her up. The white drawers are filled with all my fabric and craft supplies. If you look closely where the calender is hanging up , that is actually the doorway to go into the other side of our house.
