In our ongoing first-time home-buyer adventure, we have seen some crazy things in the houses we've toured. Tiny attic bathrooms, staircases behind bookshelves, ancient shag carpeting, basements with murder-scene potential, and miles and miles of wallpaper from what I assume was A Very Floral Decade. Recently, we toured an art deco home from the 1930s with awesome original fixtures (original colored tiles! a huge glass-block sunroom!) that we were pretty excited about, but the ceiling was leaking and even crumbling in some places (a serious quality-of-living bummer). The search continues.
So if you know anyone who wants to give me a little cabin (see below) with a wood-burning oven and a pine-scented porch, please tell that person that I accept.
