The “New” Old House

on April 16, 2012

The other day I unveiled that we are getting a house and that I will be photographing the transformation from what it is now to….well I guess to what ever it turns out to be. All part of the journey and excitement! I have been saving to buy a farm. This house definitely isn’t a farm, but a sure stepping stone to getting there. I haven’t lived in one place for more than a year in the last 7 years. I am happy to know that even though this house is a stepping stone to my dream, it will be my home for at least 5 years. Somewhere to rest my head and heart.

This 1st photo is of the back patio. I have big plans for the back yard and patio. Vegetable garden, flowers, crafts, BBQ and picking around a fire (in the winter, of course…this is Arizona for goodness sake).

These next photos are of the interior of the house. It was built circa 1954. You will see the amount of work it will take to get this place cleaned out and cleaned up. I am so excited! Believe it or not, a lot of work has already been done. Once all the trash, canned food and furniture is cleared out it will be time to bug bomb the house. I don’t like using chemicals and unnatural products which is why I am having my friend Jim come take care of it. He only uses natural products in his weed and pest control business, which makes me feel better about bug bombing the house.
