Our Third House

Our 3rd house was purchased when we moved back to Montana for Luke to attend grad school.  Like our first two homes it needs a lot of work.

The living room felt isolated from the rest of the house.  The screen leading to the hallway was once a doorway.

Pee Room - Not named for the pea green walls.  We found out from the neighbors that the previous owners did not allow their dogs inside.  The kids were the ones who ruined on the carpet.

Disco room - This eventually became the master bath and a guest room.

 The main floor bathroom was wider than usual because of the 66" bathtub.

 After - We completely rebuilt the room.  It's a little smaller than the old room but no one is complaining.
  The cellar could only be accessed from outside so it was not included as square footage when we purchased the house. The cellar was only accessible through the exterior stairs to the right.

 After - Added stairs and built a family room.  With this space now being counted as part of the house and having corrected the upstairs measurements the house is now roughly 1800 sq ft.
 The cellar bathroom packs a whole lot of gross into a small space.
 After - The only original part of this room is the window location 
Before - The back corner of the basement was wasted space.
After - We converted the back corner of the basement into a laundry room
 The back yard has a 12'x20' covered patio that never gets used because there is no convenient access.  When we remodel the kitchen we will replace the window with patio doors and add a small deck leading to the patio.  For now we're using it for materials storage.
After - Poor construction and structural damage caused us to remove the roof and have an open patio instead.
  The garage had a flat roof that was in rough shape.  You could see daylight through the ceiling.  The neighbors were taking bets on when it would fall down.
 Garage Interior - The center beam lacked proper supports.  It had sagged by over 2".

I had hoped to stay in this house but Luke finished is master's degree and took a job 60 miles away.  After six months of commuting we sold the house and started on a new one.
