Here Goes Nothing...

Well, we signed papers on our new house today, so I thought I'd go through with my idea of documenting this process via blog. In case you don't know me already in real life, my name is Tamara, and my husband Matt and I are buying a small, nondescript house on a gorgeous, flat piece of land (just under an acre) in Bayside, CA. The next couple of years of our life are going to be largely dominated by our attempts to makeover this diamond-in-the-rough, ideally in ways that are stylish, unique, and earth-friendly, but without breaking the bank. I'll post more soon, but in the meantime, here are a few 'before' pics. :-)

Front of house (living room windows on the left, dining room window on the right)

The yard - well, part of it at least.

The living room (not our furniture by the way!!!) :-)

The dining room and 'front door', which is actually on the side of the house, in a corridor between the house and garage - not ideal.

The kitchen - decently functional in the short-term at least, but seriously lacking in pizazz!

    Wow! I love your "yard"(uh...field).
    It's beautiful. It will be fun watching you guys transform the place.
