We recently purchased a 1940 brick home about a mile away from our other home. In some ways, we were surprised that we bought another older house, especially after doing so much remodeling to our first one, a 1943 cottage. But, we loved the neighborhood and its close proximity to work and school. It’s a charming smaller home in need of some work, so I’ll be posting changes we make to it.
Here’s the exterior. We really like the brick, hipped roof, front stoop, and large windows. It looks a bit bland right now because of the trim color and minimal landscaping. This summer we’re looking forward to painting the foundation, trim, gables, and front door. We probably won’t do much with the landscaping this year as we focus on the house.
