WELCOME TO THE INSIDE - ENTRY / LIVING ROOM

OK, after my absence, I return to continue the tour!  Best place to start is just to walk in the front door and go from there...



This is what you see when you walk in the front door.  The wood straight ahead is what was under the old shiplap on this wall.  The top portion is still sheet rock (and was test painted with white primer).  I want to put a desk on this wall and make it sort of an entry/office area.  To the right is a window and to the left takes you into the living room....

This is the view from standing in the front entry way looking into the living room.  Small but cozy! The door on the back wall goes into the kitchen area, and the door on the right side goes into the master bedroom...


Another view of the living room.  You can see one of the two windows on the right side, they look out onto the front porch...

Looking back from the kitchen entrance toward the living room/entry. Note the original hardwood floors, they are solid and in great shape.  Love the sunlight streaming in, it's like that all over the house, it's so nice...



One last view, looking into the living room and a sneak peak into the master bedroom...






SO......that's the living room/entry.  Obviously we will repaint, we're currently looking through paint samples.  Already "window shopping" for furniture.  We're thinking of sealing up that opening into the entry area by the wood wall, so that we can create more wall space in the living room for bookcases.  But that's a month or so down the road.  Master bedroom in the next posting!

Looking good guys. The porch looks awesome, and I love the floors here. Very cool. I am so excited for you both. - Dman

Keep coming back for more pics! Yeah, the floors are in pretty good shape. They need a good buffing to bring back their luster, but they do look nice. It's a deep rich color.

It will be a fun process, and when it's all done, you'll have to come visit!
