You remember The Clash?
Listen to the video above while you read this post!
I was hell bent on leaving our home of nearly 18 years.
We have about 4100 square feet and a fairly large 500 square foot screened in porch. After looking around for an empty lot to build on or another newer “more functional” home, and finally turning down a generous offer on our house, we decided to stay and renovate. The thought of packing up with no lot and not even a potential house was a little scary so I decided we should stay. The renovations will involve our main living areas which are really the reasons I was ready for a move–functional space.
We are staying!
We will tear down the wall to the left(not pictured) which separates the current kitchen and the “big den” to make a large kitching/dining area with two separate rooms on either side–the big den and our TV room.
The wall separating the big den from the current dining room will also open up to increase circulation downstairs.
This will create what I was looking for in a new home.
There is more to the renovation–I’ll be posting more about the whole thing in coming days/weeks as we progress.
PLUS, a couple of guest posts from young college students figuring out apartment living and learning to cook!
They are trying new recipes and sharing.
