Our House On The Corner

Rochester
7,704 (150)

We bought this house 11 years ago in "as is" condition. It was surrounded by half dead hedges, had a weed lawn, peeling ugly blue paint, a few shrubs worth saving and the inside was filthy from years of neglect. I can recall saying "only an idiot would buy this house". But the light inside was beautiful enough for us to look past the flaws. The yard was the first priority for me and I was mowing the weeds before the moving van had left the street. Now, when I come around the corner I am glad for the lapse in judgment that made this house our home.

"Inspiring. I've done the inside of my house, only been in it for a year. The outside needs lots of work. I barely made a dent in it the first summer and am starting now to form a plan for the spring."
