House Hunting :: i heart interiors style

Most house hunting posts are full of pretty pictures, but if you've been here before you may have realized I do things a bit differently than most.  Now is your chance to click away so you're not disappointed!

First I should say that I'm fortunate to have found what is possibly the best realtor in the world.  I was a few minutes late to the house and he had gone in first {and later admitted to going in first so he can control his facial expressions if things are really bad} and sent me an email saying something to the extent of, "I went in the house and great news, there are newer windows!!"

Keep in mind he walked {or actually skated} by this sink to see the windows.  Don't worry, there won't be much actual water damage until the ice melts.  In the meantime there's some really fresh-smelling ice inside!

This is a very bad picture of the amazing doors in the house {if you double what you see, you can figure out what it looks like}, you may be asking what the stuff on the floor is.

Not to worry, it's just a skylight and who doesn't like those?!?

 The best part is, there is more than one!  {This one actually worries me as did the third floor ceiling that was bowed under the weight of the snow.}

Will I buy it?  Probably not, although I'm planning on obsessing about it a whole lot.  It has amazing stairs, secret wood floors, three porches, and a barn almost the size of the house.  But, as protection against an impulse buy, I didn't photograph anything that I loved about this place so you don't get to see any of that.

If only I actually knew Norm from This Old House and his crew of people who know how to make doing this stuff look fun!


  1. I was wondering if you were still house hunting. You had mentioned that you were interested in a fixer upper but this one looks pretty extreme. It would probably be easier to some extent to take on such a project since you're designer but it's still alot of work. My husband and I were just reminiscing about our house hunt the other day and couldn't believe how many years it took us to find our place. Just because of that I wouldn't want to move again.

  2. That door! I might consider that house just for the door. And just you wait, those 'skylights' will start trending in no time.

  3. You are a MUCH braver person than I am. I don't even know if I'd have the guts to walk into that house, knowing it might collapse on me at any moment


I heart comments!
