If you would like to get a feel for what my house looked like before and after, go to my blog archive down the right side. Click on the date 08(19) entries. You will be surprised at what we started with.
Keep in mind this looks like a small house but there are 6 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 kitchens. 2 bedrooms are upstairs, 2 on the main floor, one of which we have turned into a small dining room as I like space in my kitchen, and 2 in the basement. The basement is fairly light and bright and also has a small 2 piece, ancient bathroom and a really sad kitchen. We eventually want to take the little bathroom out and the small kitchen and turn them into a very large Bathroom with a very large bath tub or jacuzzi......but thats another day.......
If you have the time and the money and want to retire, SMOOTH ROCK FALLS, Ontario Canada is the place to come...We bought this house for 25,000.00 in 2007 and there are lots of nice houses here, that don't require the work ours does for under 40,000.00. You can even buy houses here for under 10,000.00! Seriously!

TODAY IS THE DAY! Finally hubby is starting my new deck. This is the long Civic Holiday weekend August 1st, 2009 This is the mess we have right now. As you can see, they built this deck/porch years and years ago, probably in the 50's and it was all made out of concrete. Over the years they have painted it, added outdoor carpet, whatever they could to make it look better. This is a picture of the horrible mess of carpet outside that has started to grow moss from the dampness and is very slippery when wet. One day I stepped out the door and went right down on my butt
