Several years ago my husband and I bought an older home to restore it back to its older glory days. There was a lot of work to be done and we were in way over our heads. It was our first home and we didn't even know where to start. The first thing was to have all the right tools. Pneumatic tools are essential.
We have slowly started to get more done and it has surely been a process. Things started going faster once we had the proper tools and supplies that we needed.
Our house was built in 1924 and we have redone the kitchen and the bathroom and are going to work on the attic next. The attic was finished years ago but now has to be redone. Aside from all that, I love having a home with a lot of character.I love the original trim and all the original woodwork.
Although it is not a huge old mansion, I love my little cape cod. It is slowly becoming more attractive and I love tearing walls down and finding all the little treasures that the previous owners had used for insulation.
