|I bought a house.|
A little bit about the place: it was built in 1902 and is on the National Historic Registry (which says it was built in 1898). With it being on the National Registry, there are certain things that I can and can not do to the exterior. Their motto is "Repair before Replace" and I am all for that - except when replacing would make the home more energy efficient or is less costly. But I won't get into that now, I knew what I was getting into before I signed
My style leans towards modern, but I'll be embracing the history of this home (by not painting the trim white) but also keeping my decorating on more of the modern side (I bought magenta curtains for the living room).
I close on August 29th and will begin the rehabbing process almost immediately. I'll be updating the blog with my progress and I hope you'll follow along! I'm sure my "My Opinion Monday"posts are about to get a little more interesting.
