So I bought a house.
Why, you may ask? Why would I move from a SAFE 2nd floor walk-up apartment that I LOVE, that only costs me $800 a month in rent, that is in the PERFECT location in the best neighborhood in all of South Minneapolis?
Because I went to my mom's over Christmas break, watched a million back-to-back episodes of Property Brothers and Tiny House Nation and Rehab Addict that's why. That's why on a whim the very day that I got home I bought a 684 square foot fixer-upper.
This week I'm just going to post photos of my house project. I haven't been writing much lately because if I'm not in Mexico or at my full-time job or caring for those who have cancer (my mom), I'm over at this house trying to be as helpful as a 5'2" woman with no experience in such things and a car-accident back can be.
The back of the house:
Bathroom (please note the 4' clawfoot bathtub that had to be cut into the tile in the wall because the bathroom is only 3'9" wide):
From the living room through the dining room and into the kitchen:
From the dining room into the front bedroom and the bathroom:
Anyway, the house is great and could have been moved into as-is, but I decided that the roof was too saggy and needed to be replaced (see photo 1) and the layout of the house is inefficient and that I wanted to add an adorable 2nd floor loft and I had been watching all those shows, so here we are.
Thank you for posting the photo's. Love the claw-foot bathtub, I've always wanted one.
Kady, well done..that's a good house!
Kady, dear, do you have a private slimline white telephone? I'll give you a ring and I hope you'll be wearing something sensible for the telephone call. Yes, it always makes me very nervous to think I might be talking to a miniskirt. Congratulations, you're a Lady of the House, again.
If there's one thing I can't stand, it's snobbery and one-upmanship. People who try to pretend they're superior. Makes it so much harder for those of us who really are.
