Let’s start with the neighborhood. What’s it like where you live? Our neighborhood is a nice little residential area not that far from town. Lots of nice old houses and peace and quiet.
What’s the most challenging about this space? How do you deal with the challenge? We have way too many books and music. Everything is still in boxes from when we moved in. We have a plan to turn one of the living room walls into a giant bookcase. I’m so excited about this. I want to get a library ladder.
As for all the music, I want to get a nifty card catalog-type thing to put everything in.
We also need to buy more furniture to fill up space in our living room.
What’s your favorite feature of your home? I love my kitchen. It’s my favorite room in the house. It’s our favorite place to hang out and the best restaurant in town.
When Alex and I were house hunting, having a big kitchen with lots of counter space and storage was very important to us. My kitchen has plenty of both.
What’s the most important lesson you’ve learned from this home? I’ve learned that it’s much more fun to cook at home when you have enough space for everyone to move around in.
What’s your grandest plan for the space? I want to get more furniture, come up with storage for all of our books and CD’s, put art on all the walls, and landscape the outside of the house.
The inside is pretty much done, but the outside still needs work. I want to rip out all of the shrubs and plant new things. No more giant rhododendron!
Any stuff or services you want to recommend? I’m a big fan of The Street of Shops in Lewisburg. That’s where we found our kitchen table. There are a few places to get nifty antiques relatively close to where we live.
