The Visitor House

Here’s my spring project.  We recently purchased it because it connects to our property.  It’s more than 100 years old, which means that it has a lot of character(aka some no so level spots)  The left side is added on and fairly new. There are two bedrooms, a loft bedroom, kitchen, living room, two bathrooms, utility room and a terrific screened in porch. The owners were collectors.  It’s full of interesting stuff.  Just look:

We bought it all.  Right now we aren’t sure what we are going to do with all this stuff, we just know that much of it has to go. After a little cleaning and scrubbing it can be a guest house for our children or other family and friends who need a place to stay overnight or even to get away!  My grandson has named it The Visitor House.  Anyone want to have a tea party on my porch?  I have plenty of dishes that we can use!

This is awesome. I love the way you wrote about it and showed us the pictures. What a great idea - to have a visitor house. Filled with so many treasures! I bet your grandkids will love staying there once you have figured out how to sort through it all. Very cute post.

That looks like a home that will make lots of memories. It also looks a little like an antique store. You have hours of work ahead of you, I hope it's work that is rewarding and fun. I'm jealous of your grandchildren!

I love it....and all of the things within it...the porch. It will make a great place for friends and families for visits. The Visitor House is the perfect name. Jackie
