As promised...pic's of my home






































Here are some pics! We recently bought this home and have been doing changes on the inside. I'll be adding the inside pics soon! we have some mature trees on the property which need some attention, as you can see the ones off the street got a good trimming from the township! This home was built in 61' and still maintains some of it's original character. The original treats that it holds are the original kitchen cabinets, pink counter tops (with chrome trim) and its first back splash! The bathrooms three out of the 3.5 all have the original everything!!! one of them was updated in the seventies!!! At this point I plan on leaving the bathrooms in tact as they are in impeccable condition. I do like the idea of keeping the homes originality as much as possible. CHEERS Michele

Love, love, love this house! It reminds me so much of the houses in the Midwest when I went to high school. We've been in Texas for 27 years not, and wouldn't live anywhere else. But boy do I miss those emerald green "barefoot" lawns! Kathy

You have a beautiful home. Your flowers and tree are beautiful. It sounds like your home has good bones. It will be fun to fix up the inside the way you want it to be. It's always nice to see a flag hanging on a house :>)
