Our Plan

I loved my old home, I still love that house.

Tile in the kitchen, the cabinets, the windows and thick base boards.

Stephen & I both love older homes. We tried to buy an older home, but wasn't able to find one that meet our requirements. Our "New" home was built in 1963. But was remodeled in the 80's.

So we came up with the plan to try and take the home back. Back to what it might have looked liked when it was built. Or just make it the way WE would have had it look in '63.

We HATE the look of "New" wood floors. Most of them aren't really wood at all. So why not pull the floors out of an old home and reuses them? The cabinets in our new home are thin and falling down. But the ones in our old home were thick and had been hanging for over 50 years. Even Ike couldn't take them down! Every time we bump a wall in our new home it dents or makes a hole. But not the old one.

That house was over 50 years old and was still standing after Ike hit.

As the old saying goes "They just don't make them like they use to"!

So our plan is to use Architectural Salvage to rebuild and remodel every part of this home.

It's cheaper! That price is just right for us. Between Ike and buying this place we don't have much money.

It's better for the Earth. That's a pretty cool plus.

And most of all, we can make our home "ours" with little touch that are all our own.

I just hope it works!
