    I don’t know what Restored (Brett Waterman) episode it was, maybe a Craftsman in Redlands, CA where they removed the paint from the ceiling beams in the living room. Made the room looks so much better! This is one of the first things I’d put on the to-do list, apart from removing the carpet. Bathrooms and kitchen redo would come later. 🙂

    The exterior would be given a warmer paint job.

    Agree with Kelly, this house needs some interior color, too. Why do people paint fireplaces? I’ve scraped and sanded mine to get it back to the original local brick. Love the china cabinet and bookcases in this house.

    To me, the charm of a Craftsman is the wood appointments and built-ins. After removing the carpet, I too would remove any paint that is on the wood trim, including the beams. Is it just me or did they paint the fireplace?

    Oh, wow! I’m the pending buyer of this house. I’m not a wealthy person by any means, so I am allowing myself one big project a year. I’ve also been looking at making furniture because I’ve lost my mind.

    Let’s see. Yes to the restoring the ceiling beams eventually.

    I have no plans to remove the carpet; it’s in great shape, and I have a big dog.

    The wallpaper – I can live with it until my buddy who is restoring her own bungalow comes out to help me steam that stuff off.

    I’m painting the exterior in the spring (we’re about to hit rain forever season), but I haven’t chosen colors. I’m not going with the beige palette, though. I’m going to remove the bushes on the front left and side and plant wisteria, because I’m not a fan of the cinderblock look. I’ll hide it for the time being. Pick some colors for me that go with wisteria. I’m going to paint the porch ceiling haint blue, and I’m looking forward to a having porch swing.

    The kitchen and bathrooms – ugh. Just ugh.

    The fireplace has been painted, and it looks like someone forgot the open the flue once or twice which is the main reason fireplaces get painted in the first place. 😉 I haven’t decided what to do with it besides have the chimney cleaned before winter. There’s another chimney to nowhere I need to seal off.

    The house has push button light switches. I can stand there forever playing with the things. Someone clearly loved this house.

    I’m so grateful to the sellers for offering a VA loan. I’m so grateful. This will be my first house, assuming we close, and I never thought I would live in a house. I never thought I’d own one. This is a crazy and amazing experience.

    Thanks! I took some pictures of the exterior today. I have a question about the U thingies (<– technical term) on the window frames. Maybe there were shutters hung? I'll see if I can upload photos to my profile.
