Our "new" home

Our next chapter...We've officially closed and received the keys to our soon to be "new" home.  I say "new" because it's actually pretty old, just new to us.  This house was one of the original 7 houses built in Sublimity in 1910.  We plan to put quite a bit of work into it prior to moving in, but we hope to still maintain a lot of it's original character.
