We have seriously outgrown our old house. With four people, my business, and one bathroom, it's been too tight for a long time but we have finally selected a new place to live. One of the things that has held us back was not knowing where Claire would be going to school next year. Now that she has passed the entrance exams and has been accepted into the Classen School of Advanced Studies we feel like we need to stay in the inner city. Last week we took a walk through Heritage Hills and found this house for sale. It is two stories plus a basement. The best part is the large garage with the work space above it.
This will be the future home of Ashton Publications. I can finally get the shipping out of my living room! This garage is deep and can hold four cars. The up stairs has two rooms and it's own climate control. We met the son of the elderly man who owns the house and he said the room is very well insulated and it can freeze you out with the air conditioning on. The entire place needs paint inside and out, but other than that is structurally sound. I took a few pictures through the window of the inside of the house.
This is the living room as seen through the window from the back looking towards the front. The double doors on the side open onto a covered porch on the East side of the house. The next picture is looking through the living room into the formal dining room. It has a textured ceiling that looks like stamped tin. The doorway to the left will be where I have my computer and bookkeeping.
