You know that mental image you have, of your dream house? The one you'd like to live in forever?
My image was that of a little old, white shingled farmhouse. With old fashioned flowers in the garden.
Of course it would have a front porch.
This house was white, at least the remaining paint on it was white when I first saw it. (this article reversed the picture of our house, in publication. Our house is pictured, and described as the "real thing, Queen Anne, although not in mint condition".)
Next, it was a pale green, with darker green trim and red windows.
After four years of putting our mark on it....this is my dream house.
With lots of ongoing projects.
