There is a serious topic being discussed in my house right now. That topic is moving. In five years I have moved three times, only one of those houses was a rental.
I’ve become a chronic mover. I don’t move to different cities just around the sameÂ county, sometimes moving right next door. Its an interesting afflictionÂ considering my parents have lived in the same house since 1977 and I don’t think they’ll ever move. But here’s the kicker, the entire time I livedÂ in my parent’s houseÂ it was constantly being remodeled.Â I’m addicted to remodeling and living in new spaces. Sometimes I try to picture my dream house and I end up with a house that looks like a NYC loft crossed with a sprawling lake cottage blended with a craftsman bungalow topped with a modern glass house for garnish. I’m not sure if I’ll ever be content.
I told the carpenters that are currently working on another remodel for me that I was thinking about moving againÂ and they all groan and laugh, they know how much I like to move. Which house, they ask. And then they smile because it might mean more work for them in a slumped economy. Sorry fellas, not this time.
Here’s what has caught my attention and made the wheels spin almost 24 hours a day.
I snapped a few photos before my camera battery died.
This house has a very English cottageÂ feel and its a great family house.
Interestingly enough Erika just wrote a post about Martha’s kitchen which included the detailing of the adjustable shelf system and low and behold whats in the china closet but the same adjustable shelving.
I really want to make this happen, what deals may come?
