Sometimes, a small thing can bring so much happiness.
Like, a set of keys.
We bought a new (old) house today.
We’ve been in the process of purchasing the house for several months now. We discovered that purchasing a house in the state of New York takes longer than in many other parts of the country. It’s not unusual for the date of the first closing to come and go, with no set of keys in sight for the anxious would-be home owners, but finally today’s the day.
After moving from Colorado, and living in a small apartment for months during the transition, we are excited to get settled in and make this home. I’ll be sharing pictures of the transformation as we move in.
The house is over 100 years old and has character. It has been totally re-done inside and we love it! We are still adjusting to how different it is from our Colorado house.
Come on inside for a tour!
Our new home in New York:
Living Room (front of house)
I love the stained glass window and original front door.
Bedroom #1 (is off Dining Room)
Hallway — Upstairs has 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom
The kitchen is definitely what sold us on this house. I love the remodel and all the bright, beautiful space. Brent, who I’m talking to in this photo, is one of the men who remodeled the house.
The downstairs bathroom is off the kitchen.
Stairs leading to basement and backyard.
Bedroom #4 (Master Bedroom)
Backyard, Garage, and Shed
The slats that make up the garage storage area floor are old sled runners.
We live about a 10 minute walk away from the Canal. The kids went trick or treating by the river this year.
