Okay, here are a couple pics of the new place. It's old, built in 1957, and it's not big, only 1246sqft, but I guess come August 5th, it'll be mine.
The back living room
Looks very cabinish. Very cozy. Nice!
Very woodsy. And it looks to have shelves and cabinets everywhere. Awesome!
That's so exciting, moving to a new place. There's all that arranging, etc
If you lived closer I'd offer to hook you up with some granite. Paco'd probably trade for a motorcycle. heh
look at all that paneling
i grew up in a house smaller than that.. course i was smaller then
When I start to get settled I'll try and post some more pics and get your ideas about colors etc.
First order of business is new carpet in the master bedroom and living room and Pergo in the kitchen and dining. I'm going to stain the concrete in the remaining rooms.
Oh and has anyone ever painted over wall paper? Can you do that or do I need to remove it?
I think my house is something like 900 sq feet. With four people. heh.
I've heard that you can paint over wallpaper, but I don't know the particulars...preparation, etc.
Congrats on the new digs- i dig what you bought!
i love the look of that house.
i recall papa xc used to paint over wallpaper after coating it with primer, as long the wallpaper was in good shape.
Good luck & happy house living!
Yay! I like it!
Lotsa counter space and many shade trees= very good
Does the move shorten your work commute any?
And yes you can paint over wallpaper but not if you ever plan on removing it in the future. Ever.
Thats IS NOT OLD!!!
Im Older than that !!!!
Every place Ive lived in except my parents house was put up before 1920...
this one WAY before...
I said Duh!
My house was built in 1948 and considering what I have seen from some more recent construction around here all I can say is "they don't make 'em like the used to!" .
I love my high ceilings, crown moulding and thick walls (almost enough for me to overlook the miniature bathroom! ). Gives it character.
Nice! Beautiful trees! Love the kitchen! Congratulations!
Where are my manners !
Good luck with your new place!!!
It looks great !!!
Very nice looking place! I am sure you'll enjoy that house. Looks cozy. And I'd suggest you'd take of the wallpapers before doing the paint-job. It will probebly be more work, but in the long run, it will look much better.

Best to remove the wallpaper first, when the house is still empty of stuff. You REALLY REALLY don't want to be removing it later in the day when you are living there and wanted to redecorate.
We've just moved up north and bought somewhere as well, so I feel your pain! I spent the weekend stripping the bathroom, which had wood panelling fitted over two layers of tiles. Hard work, but it's added about an inch all round to the room, which is important in our tiny bathroom!

I'm sorry Brucy, you aren't that old
and lila, remember how my apartment was right behind my office? Well this house is just on the other side of the interstate. I can almost see my house from my office window. I'm going from a 1 hour each way commute, to 5 mins!
Thanks for the good links Heitie I've bookmarked them.
Congrats to PJ on not only her graduation, but home ownership and love! Here's to you!
And yeah, I think it may come down before I paint.
