|The formal dining room. I am wondering if I like this wallpaper? I do ...sort of...will have to see what it looks like in person. The floor needs to be wood here. I hate carpeting in dining rooms. Thinking a white large china cabinet here?|
Here are a few pics below of the other house we are looking at on Sunday. Hard to find good pics as it is no longer on the market. I found these pics though. We have already seen this house a year ago. So, this is our 2nd look at it. It has an absolutely lovely yard and gardens. Will be hard to pick I think between these 2 houses. The first is on the river but the yard is a bit more manageable. This yard below would almost need a hired gardener. All you would be doing in the summer months it mow-mow-mow! Then again, what better thing to be doing in the summer. I actually like to mow...with a rider mower that is. Both house would be awesome with a large green house addition. My husband is set on building a large European style green house so we can putz in the dirt and smell dirt all year around! Living in Wisconsin we are sick of Winters. Thinking about buying a home somewhere in the warmer weather as well...but want to get the main house organized first. I am not interested in the usual retirement hot spots...does anyone have a spot that they would recommend that is warm and artsy and interesting...perhaps on the ocean?...A small beach house would be nice. Taxes are somewhat an issue...I dont want to buy a house and then pay an exorbitant amount of taxes to maintain. So, we'll see. First things first....our main home. Also, I need to set up my art gallery again and hire help. We are going to add a theater/stage this time and classrooms for an "art school" as well as a cafe..some food/coffee/micobrews and wine. So between decorating my new house and setting up the new gallery, I may be busy for a year or 2. I wont be able to leave my baby (the art gallery) until I can be sure it can run without me just fine for awhile. I miss my gallery every day....cant wait to start it again. But need to make sure I choose wisely for location of it. Needs to have better traffic than the last gallery but of course, this damn economy needs to pick up!!!
