Our House
On Park Road in Mount Pleasant....
It is the grayish white one with the copper gutters and the clay shingles....the old leaded glass and the tall tree in the small front yard. It is a wonderful house with a slight tilt to it, no more than the houses on either side, but enough of a tilt that you would not want to try and put a pool table in the living room without checking it with a level. Then again...these old row houses are so narrow that you would have to knock down a few walls to make the width great enough to get a good stroke with the pool stick, breaking would not be an issue....the houses are deep, but not wide. Three stories and a basement....a backyard and a garage....not a bad place to call home...not bad at all, yet, not unlike any and everything else in life it leaves us wanting more. For some reason nothing is ever enough, we are never satisfied. There could be a more economic use of space in our house...hopefully we will find it. Only a year and a half in this house that we now call home. We have settled in nicely, but there are still many steps to go to make it more desireable.
First the deck....
then the garage....
then the basement....
well....first a permit
