Many people prefer living in their own house to living in an apartment, even if it's small. One of the easiest ways to get such a home is to buy an abandoned or dilapidated building and then renovate it. For example, this couple, who has been together for 39 years, decided to move to the countryside.
A place to live in peace
The spouses had been well aware that they would have to make extensive repairs, and they got it done. As a result, they got a comfortable place to spend the rest of their lives. There is the kitchen, that is roomy enough to house a fairly large dog, and a variety of cookware and kitchen utensils.
Before the renovations started, the house didn't look too bad for a 200-year-old house. It is situated on a hill, not far from a grove and a large lake.
A very nice view of the neighborhood opens from the attic. The house has ground floor and the first floor, and has enough space for a couple to live in. The renovation lasted about three years.
The house after the renovation
After the renovation the house looks brand new and photogenic. Here is one of the rooms on the ground floor. Its walls are decorated with white panels and paintings depicting animals. The chairs go well with the table, on which there is a beautiful vase.
During the renovations, old bottles of different sizes were found on the site, so the owners decided to use them for the interior of one of the rooms.
In the next picture you can see the white staircase leading to the attic. This light colored room is decorated with paintings and a small table.
And here is the children's room. Two identical beds can be found under the low ceiling. A cute-looking decorative fly agaric blends well with the color of the blankets.
By the way, the elderly couple's housewarming party was attended by almost 20 people, their friends and relatives, who were hardly able to fit in one photo at the entrance.
Twenty people could hardly be accommodated for the night in this house, that's why some of them had to sleep in sleeping bags.
