Old Houses: Love ‘em or hate ‘em?

Do you love old houses? The charm, the history, the stories hidden in their walls?

The musty smells,  tiny bathrooms and draftiness?

I confess, its more of the latter half that comes to mind when I think of old houses. You see, I grew up in an old house. Actually, first it was not a regular house- it was a one room school house back in the day.  Yep, as in all the kids where in the same room, that’s how old it was. I actually recall as a kid, a very, very old neighbor  telling me he went to school in our house.

The old house that I grew up in

The old house I grew up in

As you can imagine, back when they did one room schoolhouses, modern conveniences like indoor plumbing and insulation were not around. So when my parents bought it in 1975, it had at some point been retrofitted with such things. The main source of heat was a potbellied wood stove. On really cold nights we were allowed to sleep on the floor near the stove, since our bedrooms were a tad bit chilly…..

And we did have a bathroom! Granted, it was only one bathroom, and I had 9 siblings, but hey, at least we didn’t have to use an outhouse! And the claw foot bathtub was great. It wasn’t till I got older and we built an addition that had another bathroom with this amazing thing called a shower, that I realized how incredible such luxuries were. It was awesome that we had a washing machine too- who cares if it was in the bathroom?  Did I mention that this bathroom had a curtain instead of a door? Really.

The kitchen was great- we had the essentials, aluminum shelves to put our stuff on, a sink, and a cooktop. On occasion when it was working, an oven too! My parents always said that they had 10 dishwashers- why should they purchase one when they had so many for free? (That would be us, the kids!, Yeah, we weren’t exactly free.)

Well, after growing up in an old house, can you guess what I live in now? Built in 2005, warm, energy efficient, mouse free and with  multiple bathrooms!

New Homes

The New Home I love to live in now.
