Home Sweet Home
Posted April 17, 2009on:
We live in the back half of a duplex we estimate is about 80 years old. It is a mixture of charming (built in shelves in the dining nook, a little office connect to the one big bedroom, beautiful and original hardwood floors throughout) and shabby (bathroom cabinet doors that won’t close and just enough draftiness to alert us to changes in the outside temperature) and is a quite fitting first home for the married-less-than-a-year couple, young-ish couple that we are. We are quite please the rent we do/don’t pay and are happy to have the half with the fenced in yard. The other day we realized we had a little friend that had come in to say hello.
I haven’t decided if this little guy and his location fall into the charming or shabby category, but I like him.
