the house that is under contract .. yes that one.


so this is it ... who knows what you all our thinking but i am thinking its a GEM! so my plans for this poppy in the rough on sumac street in provo utah ... well definatetly a new saufet and faccia color! a new front door, some serious bushal removal and shapping and some water to the lovely lawn.


a peak at the best part of this house .. the SHAG carpet throughout almost the entire 3000 sq feet! there are multiple shades of it of course, some red ....ish, green ...ish, blue ...ish, brown, and of course orange! isnt orange like the national shag color? not a spot untouched! in fact in many of places the carpet is pulled up the wall and doubles as baseboard! soon to be gone from this place (with the exception of one small square of each for keepsake purposes!)



a peak into the potties. arent they glamorous. this house showcases a design technique i have never seen in my life .... wall paper on the bathroom ceiling ... yep folks! i am serious. in fact there is not even one room in the house that lacks wallpaper but most have normal ceilings. of course potty rooms will receive a 100% overall very soon! anyone want a pink, orange, or blue toilet with matching sinks??




there are a few vintage details that i heart ... like some lighting and bathroom hardware. of course it needs my touch but nothing more.


one more thing i heart ... the vintage mint condition double wall oven!

I hate it when people come to our new house because I know in their heads they're thinking, "what were they THINKING?!" but you can come over anytime, my friend, because its obvious you can see potential! And I definitely see the potential in your new place. You and I could trade some pretty awesome carpet swatches... (ours is orange and brown PLAID!)

I think this house is charming.

I know I might sound crazy, but I agree with you that it's a dream home. You can't change location, layout (easily) etc, but redoing surfaces inside is easy and fun and you get to pick exactly what you want without feeling bad about getting rid of perfectly good things simply because they don't suit your style. I can't wait to see what you guys do with it!

I like that house... part of me longs for a humble rambler with a big yard. I can't wait to see how it looks when your work on it is done.

Those toilets might be worth something if they're old; they don't make them like they used to. Now they have to make them more water-efficient, which just doesn't work so well.
