This is our our 97' Elkton in the winter:
Very cozy, but prettier in the spring!
My favorite things about this particular house are the kitchen windows at the sink. I have no dishwasher so 2 windows, one up the driveway, the other at the sideyard are very nice while washing, especially since I've never had a sink window before. In a few years I'd like to put those garden/greenhousy windows in there, because this seems to be the place to start my seeds. It's also the spot where I put my bread to rise.
Also we have very vaulted ceilings. They help to keep it cooler in the heat by alot, though it is admittedly harder to keep it warm in the winter. The previous owner had been a smoking trucker & he left his own plusses & minuses. Plus #1- a 3 ton air handler, industrial grade. It keeps the house cool (were we to use it) & very warm, could we afford it. But it kept the house at a very steady 62 all winter. Plus #2, he also installed a mega hot water heater in which you can have 2 showers going at once along w/ a load of whites & the supper dishes after company is over. That only happened once, but we were suitably impressed. The minuses are all cosmetic & not worth mentioning again, I think they're in a previous post.
We're also on well & septic, so electricity is our only house bill. Though I'm somewhat envious of Candy's laundry room I love our house! What's your favorite thing about yours?
