Welcome to Ittybittybungalow and Thanks for joining me on Stucco House’s 3rd Annual Bungalow Blog Tour.
The Bungalow Blog Tour is a chain of linked blogs about old houses all over the net. At the base of my post you’ll find a link to take you to the next and previous homes on the tour (everyone’s links should be up and running by Saturday morning).
Ittybittybungalowis an 864 square foot home in Rochester, NY. My cat and I have been here for just over a month and have been making some pretty solid progress in updating the house and restoring some of the original charm. Here you can see a picture of the house as it looked when I bought it on March 24th, 2011.
Since then I have removed the windows in the porch, installed a new walkway and am currently working on the gardens.
On the inside I have been able to paint most of the rooms, repair some of the window weights and get settled in many of the spaces but both my kitchen and bathroom continue to be disaster areas. I hope that you will take a minute to view some of my previous posts as they really cover everything I just mentioned in more detail. As a new homeowner I really don’t know much about anything that I am doing and often use this blog as a platform to get better ideas and advice so please feel free to comment and subscribe I’d love to get input from those of you who have more experience.
Here is a picture of the house as it looks today:
As you can see I’ve made some progress but much more needs to be done. For one -The pink porch needs to go ASAP.
In my posts you can expect to hear about vintage items scored from thrift stores, estate sales, Craigslist and curbs all over the city in addition to updates about my progress both in and outside of the house. You’ll also notice that my blogroll links to all sorts of design blogs where I enjoy browsing for unique ideas for decorating with limited funds, and some where I can read about other people spending lots of money. One of my favorites Apartment Therapy, runs an annual Small But Cool contest each year; which is something I am gearing up to enter next spring.However I know I am going to need lots of help and encouragement on the way from readers like you!
Thanks for visiting,
