House #2- Grandview House

Thursday, January 24, 2013

We rented a little yellow bungalow that was by far the best location; blocks from the water, restaurants, shopping and parks. Another thing that drew me to this house was the character. I believe it was built in the 30s-40's, had arched doorways, original hardwood floors and interesting nooks and crannies. This was the first house I lived in where I really got into decorating and home projects.

(In our new little rental and I believe this was Jake's 28th birthday)

(The TART trail was right down the road from us and the perfect spot for dog walks and bike rides)

(Old claw foot tub in the upstairs bath)

(Our first Christmas tree as a married couple)

(See how I turned the guestroom walk-in closet into my little office HERE)

(Dining room in the Spring)

(Our fun gallery wall)

(Little sitting room)


(Upstairs family room)

(See how turned our 3rd small bedroom into a shared walk-in closet HERE)

(I still miss these views...sigh. Here's a post about our neighboring beach)

The house certainly had its downfalls. There was hardly any insulation, meaning it was always cold and our heat bills were insane for living in such a small house. The falling ice chunks could seriously have killed someone (Read that post HERE). And our landlord was caarazy. But we won't get into that. We were in that house for about 9 months and Jake got a promotion that required us to move between both of our jobs...On the road again.
