Look ceiling on the floor!!! Sgt tells me he bought his house because of the fire place. As you all know, I'm not much of a rustic, farmhouse kinda girl, but I happen to enjoy a good design challenge. Also, before you ask, I am planning on staying true to the character of the house and not planning on making it into something it's not. Goodbye mid-century modern dreams and hello vintage farmhouse charm with contemporary updates! Or maybe I'll create my own mix and do mid-century vintage farmhouse? Sounds good yes? But, what ever I do, there will be vintage involved so, before you ask, I will not be putting in granite counter tops "yuck" but would like to do a white farmhouse kitchen sink! I would also love to put in a big old vintage stove, but I don't think the Sgt would go for that since he loves to cook so much....I smell a viking stove in my future.
The damaged floor beam that started it all! There are some really good things about the house that I like and of course some things that I don't like. All in all, for being over 100 years old, the house has got some good bones and I'm looking forward to getting my hands dirty again with projects.
