The 1878: Our New (OLD) Home TOUR

Hi friends! There’s been a lot going on over the past couple of weeks —If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed — that we purchased a new (OLD) home!!! This home is an 1878 Mansard style home which will definitely be a labor of love, needing lots and lots of TLC, however we are most certainly up for the challenge!  We have officially been in this house for 2 weeks now and have spent this time demoing and removing layers upon layers of wallpaper.  We are super excited and optimistic about the future of this 1878 fixer-upper.  These pictures are of the first floor from our first viewing of the home, check out the video below for a full tour . . .

Let’s take a tour, shall we?

Like most Victorian homes, the curved staircase, 10ft ceilings, hardwood floors, and adorable little side porch is what drew us in.

This home is chock full of character!  -Front stairway-

So, what do you think?  Trust me guys, it looks much scarier than it actually is–or maybe I can so easily see past the scary stuff, ha-ha!  I can’t wait to share this journey with you all! Stay tuned!

Spread the love
