And behind this door… another house.

With all the focus on the settlement, architect scheduling and general contractor discussion since closing, I hadn’t had a chance to write about this yet. When we first went to see the house, the MLS listing stated: This home features a separate in-law suite (with its own address) which is currently rented out. Intriguing, right? It was. Adorable, charming, cute, were other words to describe it. It was another house on the lot! She’s now been named “The Carriage House”. It’s a one bedroom, one bathroom roughly 550 sq. ft. home over the garage. The tenant is gone and the plan is to spruce it up with some paint, furniture and accessories and invite friends and family over for long weekends! Reservations accepted starting January 2011. Breakfast included.

“Legally imported from Sicily.” Those were the seller’s words at settlement.

    I finally had a chance to look at your blog. I am so happy for you two! Congratulations. How exciting. I can’t wait to see the transformation. I will definitely have to plan a trip out to Philadelphia next year.
