    Never mind; it is a nice, well-situated house with quirks, and you needed a hobby...
    so much a money pit. The basement walls are cracked, too, but not in ways that distrub DH or our inspector.

    I wont even mention the grove of dead trees and scrubby trees in the middle of our lot, I think $10,000 in takedowns but dH who used to bid that kind of work says not that much.

    i keep reminding DH that we will HIRE work done. I was so happy to hear him talk aboit hiring a landscaper to build retaining walls. He actually used the word “hire.” So very excellent.

    Thanks for sharing!!

    Love that painting and the arched entries.

    So many cool elements--I love the quirks. I also think you're smart to hire someone to give you ideas on bringing it all together. But what potential! It's adorable.

    I am so glad someone else loves that old tile. We had a 1939 house once with 1939 tile and it was great. The hall half bath was in burgundy and grey with art deco details.

    In England, the pipes are often in older houses just left exposed. They are painted to match the walls.

    Oh, I LOVE that pink tile! I recently stayed at a mid-century (1950s) motel in Ann Arbor (The University Inn) that still has the original tile like that in the bathrooms. My room had pale yellow tile.

    I Love the pink tile! I rented a house for several years that had a large bathroom, all done in the same tile, with teal tile accents. I did the whole house with southwest decor, had a gorgeous southwest design shower curtain that matched perfectly... oh, the memories!

    Love that wood floor with the inlay pattern.
    I also like that they obviously used old recycled when they built the stairs.
    That painting - sigh. Beautiful. You will keep it won't you?
    The tile - pink is my most disliked color and even I would keep that!

    yeah, well, sorry! But I may not keep the wall paintIngs, we shall see. I am smack in the middle of the road on that issue but am leaning toward keeping them.

    the village rumour is that the local historical society had interest at one time in taking them, so
    I would treat them respectfully if I decide to remove and find a way to preserve them. But yes, the painting are pretty cool, also are claustrophobic.

    Thank you. Is there a tutorial somewhere that shows an easy way to keep my images right side up?
