Our House On The Corner
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.
1 of 8: How lucky can we get...we have the street sign, one way sign, speed hump sign, fire hydrant and my personal favorite- the cable box!
4 of 8: There was a beautiful sprawling maple tree that we lost to the ice storm. This one is about 7 years old and it was worth the added expense to plant the largest caliper we could find rather than a sapling.
