Homebody's at it again.

I was playing around on the rmls and found this gem. I want to pluck it up, right out of town, and plop it on 10+ acres nestled amongst some big ol' oak trees. I can't say that it's necessarily my dream house but for the moment I will carry on as if it is...
(There's a WINDOW SEAT under that big front window!)

Don't we just LOVE this little room!? The potential is spewing. (Oh, did I mention that along with the magical house moving skills and 10+ acres I need bunches and bunches of dinero for the renovation?)
Now, it would break my heart to tear up that fantastically-retro floor, but my heart would heal quickly as the original wood flooring (I'm assuming they're there, and they're wanting to come out) came back to life. mmmmm... Let's put a big basin sink and butcher-block counters under those gorgeous windows...

While I clean up my drool I should let you know that as much as I carry on over other homes, there is but one home for me and that's right where I cam. I cam? Too late for backspace...

My
OH-
SO
talented big bro, who is not a "poo-poo head" (remember that post?), has helped us in our latest projects. And I just so happen to have some pics!
........
............
................ready?


My lovely kitchen.
Cabinets- painted. Hardware- blackened. Counters- reshaped. Tilework- welcomed.
And our beautiful living room built-ins! Bye-bye awkward tv cabinet!!

More home project pics to come 'cause (to my hubby's dismay) the projects never end!

Well that was fun, wasn't it? Now I want to hear all about your dream home!
........or just ditto the zookeeper.

I love that house! I love the idea of a fixer but not the work involved. Your reno work in your home is super cute!

I love that house! All those cute little nooks and crannies. I differ in that I only want maybe 5 acres (that's enough for my goats, pig and chicken coop, couplea more dogs and big garden..right?) The only thing lacking is that front porch should totally wrap all the way around. DROOL! I can so totally see the possibilities!

Only two things I need for my own house to be my dream house. The wraparound porch and a walk-in closet in the master bedroom. I'll never get either, so will be content with what I have.
