Our First Home
March 2015 came on the tales of a particularly harsh winter. This is New England after all. So what better time to buy your first home then when the entire property is covered in three feet of snow (roof included!). The snow was so bad that winter, that we could not even get out onto the back porch to look around the property.
Naturally, my husband and I leapt at this purchase! It was a well maintained, yet extremely dated 1948 Cape and boy did we have big dreams for this property. Not to mention, naive hopes of starting projects immediately. Much to our surprise, we vastly underestimated the number of post-work nights and weekends we would spend on said projects.
Two years later, we have just started to make a dent in our list and I plan to use this blog as a place to share our building and design projects, as well as, every mistake, nightmare and battle scar! Because, what would home ownership be without those moments.
Here is a glimpse of what we got ourselves into:
The Sun Room
The Pink Closet Bathroom (It is hard to tell, but the toilet is pink, and the sink is pink as well!)
The Dining Room
The Master Bedroom
The Master Bathroom…AKA The Only Full Bathroom
The Living Room
The Other Bedrooms
One thing is for sure, these people loved wood paneling. Thankfully 50% was real strong wood, but the upstairs is entirely cheap, thin, and hideous wood paneling. This house continues to be a work in progress, and with every wall we open there is always a surprise. To hear more about these surprises, keep an eye out for upcoming blog posts documenting the never-ending home ownership chronicles of The Broadway House.
