So here it is.
It’s made out of cinderblocks.
Yep, that’s right- I said cinderblocks.
Not the most “cottage-y” of exteriors, eh? My husband didn’t think so either. Fortunately, I was able to cloud his judgment with the repeated use of phrases like, “clad it with some kind of cottage-style siding”, and “paint it a warmer color”, and we made an offer on the place in September of 2007. Our offer was (surprisingly) accepted, and we closed on Halloween.
I figured I’d start our blog with a post about the exterior of our house, and then ease you into posts about the interior slowly.
Because I’m telling you, the place we moved into was scary.
