While staying here for more than a weekend a few changes have been made. See the big double green and white checked chair in the sun porch area. Well, it is the most uncomfortable chair to sit in so I moved it from where the brown rose chair is now out to the sun porch.
This grey day made it possible to take a picture of the shelf over the bank of windows in the great room. Most of the things sitting on the shelf were found in Mom's attic and she so enjoys seeing them out where she can actually get to look at them.
This little guest house is really pretty tiny. This is a shot from off the kitchen. On the left is one bedroom, down the hall to the right is the bathroom and to the back is the other bedroom. You can see how narrow the interior walls are. I think they are just sheets of bead board back-to-back with some studs in between.
This picture show the cottage style closets in the first bedroom.
Walking over to Mom's back door you can see some of the detail of the copper piping, the heavily textured brick and the slate shingle roofing. The house was built in the late '30s using beautiful, durable materials.
They have lived her for about 30 years now and have updated only once in all that time.
The kitchen was done 30 years ago but still functions pretty well. The big faux plants, wallpaper, curtains and bar stools really need to go. The agenda for this week though has been to replace the cookware. Sunday I made pancakes for everyone. That is after replacing the box of Bisquick that expired in 1997.............
This is the little den off the kitchen where Mom & Dad sit by the cozy fireplace that has never worked. Mom loves here TV table by her chair.......
Pretty herringbone pattern on the brick in the fireplace that has never worked.
A bit of British Colonial in the living room.
