Inside our Home
Last Monday I gave you a look at the outside of our home. This week I thought I would give you a look at the inside. Kind of strange maybe, but I thought that you might find it interesting.
This house was built in the 30's by a man named Rossi. Well, he probably didn't do the work, but had it done. I really don't know. I believe his first name was Joe. The house itself has had very little updates and has weathered the years very well.
When you come up the brick steps and enter through the front door this is what you see. When we moved in we redid these wood floors.
Yes, we have a hammock in the dining room. Great place to read and watch the sunsets.
The kitchen was updated by a caretaker during the late 70's. I would like to resurface the counter tops, but can't decide what would be 30's era appropriate. The laminate floors were done by Mark's parents sometime in the 80's.
This is the breakfast nook. The french doors go out onto a deck.
This is the laundry room and behind the little door is our pantry. There is an amazing big sky light over this room. Even on the darkest day in winter you don't need a light in here during the day.
I love this bathroom and its bold color. The toilet and the shower each have their own little room with cool glass and metal doors. They are along the wall to the left. We recently had to redo the shower pan, but otherwise all of the fixtures are original and still working.
From the bathroom (there are no halls in this house) you step into the vanity room. I originally thought this room was a bit odd, but I love it and use it everyday.
From the vanity you enter both bedrooms. This is the guest bedroom, although because it has a propane heater, Mark and I tend to make it our winter room.
There is no door from the vanity into the master bedroom. While we hope to someday fashion one for the arched entry, at this time I have a curtain. We also refinished these floors. We love the old wood floors.
From our room you reenter the living room and are back at the front door. The house is basically a square with the washroom in the middle. A bit odd perhaps but we love it. It has lots of light and terrific views. Thank you for visiting. Come again.
