It's Finally Ours

We closed on the house today. Our "new" 87- year- old- house. Here is a better picture. Yes, we will trim the bushes, though some are the neighbor's. This place has more natural wood inside than any house we looked at. Great mostly original living and dining room with decorative fireplace, built-in bookcases, buffet, plate rail and so on. Less exciting '70's kitchen. More pics by the end of the week and I'm getting all psyched on this Arts and Crafts stuff. Growing up in the Chicago area, we called these Queen Anne bungalows but I now know that refers more to earlier, more decorative Victorian hold-overs. Perhaps it is to differentiate them from the more common Chicago bungalows. Any thoughts?
