come july's end, we will move from this drab little apartment complex to a house in the woods. we will be renting the new place from very kind folks that i've known for years and, fortuitously, it is available just when we need it. it's not really in the woods - it's actually in a regular, albeit wooded, neighborhood but doesn't it seem sort of cabin-like?
|the house is not even a quarter mile from where i lived between 4th and 12th grade.|
the house, built in 1981, has many charming qualities, but it also needs a little work to bring it up to date. it is currently unoccupied and so we're able to get in there and begin some of the more major undertakings prior to moving in. there is much fodder for blog entries!
the biggest project that we've already begun is transforming the kitchen from 1980s almond to a functional and stylish space. photos coming soon!
