Our new house

We recently bought a 1910 Craftsman bungalow style house in downtown Colorado Springs. We got a good deal on it but it needs some work. Of course we’ll keep you posted on all that. Meanwhile, here are some pics!
It has a big front porch that we want to fill with comfy furniture, candles, and plants.
