Downsizing Our Home - A Big Change



Well, we've gone from this...


                                               to this.


That section on the left end with short windows is all garage, not living space.  Like they say, "location, location, location".  The new house is all about location.


This is a peek at the inside "before" condition.  These photos were on the real estate listing.   Keep in mind these photos have been heavily edited for marketing purposes.  The house was built in 1955.


The living room.


The den



Every room has since been painted, except for the bathrooms which are still stuck in 1955, pink tile and all. I'll share some new photos soon.

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. We did this. Huge house and lot in the country to 50s Ranch on the water with 2 pink bathrooms�� after mant years we are selling the now big 50s ranch on the water ! We ended up keeping one of the pink bathrooms and it came out really cute. If you'd like to see how we worked with it I can email you a picture. Pamela

  3. We're looking to downsize in the next few years, too, but the housing market has bottomed out in our area on larger homes. Just waiting, and hoping it picks up so we can sell! Looking forward to following along on your journey as you add your special touch to this beautiful home! It's already quite charming! ~Rhonda
