Green with envy!

My friend Nicole just loaded some pictures on her website of her new home in Duluth, MN. K, her house? My dream house. I LOVE IT!! I don't think she realizes how close I am to packing my bags and moving in with her. It's so cool, I totally love the style of house that has lots of woodwork, exposed heaters, wood floors, great windows...just take a look, you'll see what I'm talking about.

How great is that yard?

Living Room....heaven

Dining Room - aren't the ceilings great?

Stairway - the stairs used to be covered in carpet. I think the wood looks fab!

Entryway

They did lots of work to this house to update it, it's incredible. I cannot say enough about this house (obviously), it's just such a beautiful home! Perhaps one day I will find a little gem like this.

Oh I love it!

I do not, however, love the weather in Minnesota in the winter. -15 degrees? yikes! But that house just might make it alllll worth it!!

Thanks for pointing these out. I have to go congratulate Nicole now!

Oh, thanks so much Jewels! It really took a long time to find it and we were truly blessed to be able to get it at such a good price. I think the -15 degree's as Kate said leads to an afordable housing market. We have done some serious work, and there is a ton more to do. Brent is redoing a bathroom, hall, guest bedroom (you can all come visit in the summer or winter if you dare), and we have the whole attic to remove carpet and wall paper in. The hallway stairs had multiple 2 inch cracks from floor to ceiling. I guess my point is...to get a cheap house you also get a TON of work. It does make it worth it though. As I said...we have plenty of space for visitors....any takers? :)

i love radiant heat with exposed radiators! i'm not sure why anyone would ever move on to forced-air heat-it's harsh and consumes way more energy. so odd.

hope they can heat the place in the winter! you never know how those old houses are going to work out. so fun yet soooo scarey. our little 1921 dive in SLC is already giving me ulcers! but nicole is right, the hard work is definitely worth it in the end when you have a beautiful house that you basically created and you sell it for the big bucks. at least that's what i keep telling myself!

This is a beautiful house! You'll have to go out and visit your friend to see it in person!
