We have already bought several items for the house. They range from a Pedestal tub to a Fireplace insert. We like the idea of building a house out of used items. This weekend we went antiquing and picked up three more items for the house. We bought a pair of wooded French doors. They have several scratches but I’m not sure if we are going to refinish them or just touch them up. What sold me was the pull down chain that allows you to unlock the stationary door. We also found a vintage light for the Kitchen nook. All I can say is it’s not something you will find at home depot. We also found a old rotary phone for the kitchen. I have this vision of when you walk into our home, you will feel like you just stepped into the 40’s.

Last week we pulled the building permit. It went better than I thought it would. We only had one hiccup and it was very minor. Hopefully, this week we will finish up the house plans. By the end of this month, we might be digging a foundation!
