I'm going to try to chronicle some of the house buying details here every once in a while. I'm going to start with some 'before' pictures.....
Let us enter through the side door. First you enter the porch.......
Then you go into the kitchen where we are going to do some math.
Dishwasher = good, black = bad (all other appliances are white)
Cabinets = paint. Faux brick linoleum floor = ewwww!
Painting cabinets + replacing floor = a lot of work. Looking forward to it though!
Next, lets take a step into the living room..... Much less work in here!
First floor bedroom. Paint required.
First floor den or small bedroom. Future home of bookcases and Link.
Bathroom. Workable as it is, but will need changing some day.
Let's climb the stairs to the second floor! I happen to like these stairs, but not the hideous poles on the right. They extend to the ceiling! Can we spell chainsaw??
I've got plans for the stair risers.....
Bad picture, but this is the future home of the craft room. It also has a lovely wooden floor. No more pins sticking out of carpet!
Here is a shot of the backyard. There is a little stream that you can't see!
Our definite pre-moving renovating plans are:
1.) Refinish all wood floors
2.) Paint cabinets white with an antiqe/distressed stain
3.) Paint kitchen, living room, bedroom walls and trim
1.) Replace faux brick linoleum floor
I accept any tips for a first time home buyer!
