I'm Home!!

Here is the new house!!

After I got here, I spoke with the previous owner and the house has not been lived in for 8 years!!

The previous owner advised me that some kids had come through and shot a bunch of the windows up with a BB gun.

There is an old part of the house and a new part.  This is in the old part and the electrical will definitely need to be updated!!

Everything is just nasty!!  I did not dare take pictures of the toilet!!  Yukko!!

This sky light could be very cool once I get it cleaned up and get item enclosed.  It is right over the kitchen sink!!

I am just glad someone has not been living in this house in the shape it is in!!  Stay tuned!!


  1. But someone is living in it now, in the shape it is in. And that person is you!! It has a lot of potential, Kris, and I am excited for you to make it happen. First things first--is the well up and running now?

  2. Boy oh boy do you have an adventure waiting for you. I can't wait to see how you transform this into your own.

  3. What an adventure. OK, you've got five years! Ready, set, GO!!!! HAPPY RENOING! Is that a word? It is--I looked it up. Hugs from me, too.

  4. Good luck on your new adventure in reno! Just remember to take a deep breath and visualize how you see the finished house when things are on your last nerve! It has great potential to be a beauty.

  5. Hi Kris, I've been reading along with Lavender Quilts and really have been enjoying the Saturday's smile! Now you're here as well! Thought I'd finally leave a comment!
    What's great about this place it that you don't have to worry about ripping out someone's renovations to make it your own! And you definately see what you get!
    Oregon! Have fun at the ocean!
    Looking forward to seeing how this rough rock turns into your own diamond!
    take care,

  6. Safe and sound in Oregon! Love the new site and the pictures of of your home. You could probably use a ride around lawn mower. Does Oregon have a lottery? :) You and your courageous will make this home your castle, I have no doubt. Kim

  7. Good luck with all the renovations. How handy are you? Sure you will make it into something beautiful.

  8. Oh, honey! There's potential there, but it's going to take a lot of elbow grease!

  9. That's quite a job you have ahead of yourself but when it is finished, it will be just the way you want it.
