Default My Intro

I recently (2 weeks ago) moved into my 1886 1600sq/ft two story farm house. Since I haven't been there long, I have no idea what kind of energy useage I'm looking at yet. However, I already have a slew of ideas that I'm trying to figure out and prioritize so I can start doing stuff. The previous owners had a year round average of a $280 utility bill, but they had 6-8 people living in the house. Right now its just me and my wife. But, in a few months though, I will be having my cousin and his family move in (wife and three small kids) so there will be 7 of us there.

Pictures to come soon. I get internet at home today, yay!

The house looks great and the garage looks awesome. Plenty of room for a shop.

Default More pictures

Here are some more pics I took recently. I'll try to explain what is what. I also drew up a floor plan so you can know what the layout is like.




The main entrance off the porch by the garage.



Straight into the downstairs bathroom.



Take a left at the entrance into the kitchen (by the oven is the entrance).




The living room.



The sunroom.



Immediately to the right are the stairs.



Master bedroom (all the bedrooms are on the small side).



Across from that is another bedroom.



Next to that is another bedroom.



And across another bedroom.



Ok, ran out of bedrooms, now here is the upstairs bath.




Here are some pics of the yard. I'm kinda standing behind the house and rotate counter-clockwise.


They left us the huge trampoline.




And finally aerial shots courtesy of maps.live.com. This shot is looking westward.


This shot is looking eastward.

Looks like a great piece of property you have there Daox. The inside of the house looks like it's had a lot of renovating recently, did the previous owners update everything, or did you? How much acreage do you have out there? I love the look of the house as well. Defiantly looks very relaxed. The patio looks like the perfect place to hang out on a summer evening and enjoy a cup of iced tea while the kids are playing in the yard
