Our House is named
THIS house was built in 1880, after the house originally built upon the property in 1830,
burnt to the ground.
I think it is pretty amazing that in all those years, we are only the second owners!
At the end of the day…I LOVE my Old House..it is where it ALL happens.
Here is a tour of our house…

THE DINING ROOM

Interestingly, most people whom have seen the newly painted dining room initially do not notice that it is a new color. Expection a PINK rook, they have been happily surprised to instead find a warm, soothing background color which complement s almost every other color without domination the the room or appearing too GIRLS though you know I have NO problem with GIRLY!
