Lookey What I Found

The kids that grew up in our house stopped by a few weeks ago to see the place. It was so much fun showing them the house and then having them tell us how things used to be. Apparently, the last time they stopped by the place (I believe they said early 80's) the basement was covered in velour and when they first moved in the stairs were painted red, white and blue. How patriotic of the previous owners. We are not going to be doing that. Anyways, here are some pics they sent us from when they lived here (roughly 1960-1970)


Now (picture taken before we moved in):

I am definitely leaning towards opening up the porch again. We also really like the look of the house without the little tin overhang on the bay windows sooooo we are going to eventually do away with that as well. What do you guys think? Likes? Dislikes?

Open porches are charming. Definitely something to consider.

I do like the idea of opening up the porch and removing that overhang. However, I do like the red paint verses the white.
