Our Tiny Old House

About this house:
Built in 1911
897 square feet
2 Bedrooms
1 Bathroom

The Good:

  • This is an old house.
  • The bones of this house are solid. In fact, the inspector commented about its good shape.
  • There are 17 trees on this property.
The Bad:
  • The entire house is a glorious shade of white.
  • There are popcorn ceilings, which likely contain asbestos.
  • There are only two bedrooms.
  • There is no fenced yard.
  • The kitchen cabinets are small, very high, and very few in number.
  • The front porch is sagging, and the porch columns are rotting at the base.
  • The upper (white) siding is asbestos cement siding, and the lower (tan) siding is aluminum.
