That is Charlie’s phrase. “Our brown home” is the apartment we lived in in Chicago; “our green home” is this little house that just yesterday became ours!
More photos — the “before” tour — can be found here. After we paint walls and buy furniture and install appliances and gut the backyard and…and…and, I’ll update it with the “afters.”
We’re pretty giddy about this house. It has a fascinating history and was extremely well built in the late 1950s. After weeks and months of obsessing about paint colors, I purchased two gallons of paint (the first of many) from the hardware store today! I imagine we’ll be spending a lot of time there. We’re excited to start working toward making this our home.
