Today I thought I would tell you a bit more about the house we are moving to. I have been asked a lot about what it is like. I know I have previously posted photo’s of the outside, but today I want to share the inside and talk about how we imagine we will live there.
Like most older houses (it was built in the 1930’s or 40’s), it has lots of distinct rooms with doors rather than the nice flow from one area to another found in most newer houses. This will be quite a change for us as we have an open plan house, but this may well have it’s benefits if it limits the amount of space the kids have to spread their junk toys around.
The sunroom was originally the back verandah, and is absolutely beautiful to sit in during winter where it traps all the sun. It may be a little hot out here in summer though.
We are going to use the original lounge room as a study, come guest room. We really want people to feel comfortable about coming and visiting us, so we need to have a room that can easily put guests into. It has a beautiful open fire place, which hasn’t been used for years, and (I think) is blocked up.
It is a really lovely old house, in need of a bit of renovation, but come December, it’s our new home!
