The past two weeks have been a whirlwind of activity. Last Monday night, we moved out of our one-bedroom apartment and into our first home. I never realized how much stuff we had accumulated in that small apartment until we had to pack it all up and unload it down the road.
The work was all worth it though–I’m in LOVE with our new home! It’s an old 1915 home in South Saint Paul with lots of natural lighting, built-ins and hardwood floors. I’ve heard the terms “Mission” and “Arts and Craft Style” thrown around by a lot of people seeing pictures of our home, but I guess I’m not positive yet. I’ll have to do some more research, so feel free to leave comments below on what you think the homestyle is. If you’ve ever watched HGTVs Rehab Addict, it’s the kind of old home Nicole Curtis would redo in St. Paul. We’ll have some of our own work to put into the house, but overall, it’s in great condition and has good bones!
I’m hoping to share some of the work and updates we make to the house overtime on the blog. I won’t bore you with too many more details now, but here are a few of my favorite pictures:
