This is the house I wanted all my life. My best friend Lisa live across the street. I would sit on that sidewalk and just look at that house and say someday I am going to have that house. When my mother was alive she would say lets go up the street and look at the Chambers House(Our House) This house was not lived in for 30 to 40 years. The man who owned it was a Dr and he lived in Chicago he would come every so often just to make sure everything was working properly. 6 bedrooms, 5 baths, 4 fireplaces. I don't know maybe we are crazy but all I can say is that this house has been so full of love since we moved in. We have parties around our fire place outside. I will have to get a picture of that and show you. We have most of our family gatherings here. I get to see my grandson almost everyday because they live 2 blocks away.

 Mrs Chambers was such a mean lady she would yell at Lisa and I if we would walk on her side walk. She would run after us with a broom. She was mean.
But one Halloween we decided to got knock on her door, just because we where rebels, wanted to get a thrill. She answered the door and we were getting ready to dart but she was so nice she gave us each a quarter( and back then that was alot of money for a 8 year old) and asked if we wanted a ride in her Elevator ( Yes it does have an elevator, Awesome). Well we declined because we where not that brave.
But I knew some how then that this would be my house. I think it is the Law of Attraction. If you believe it. It will be.

We still have so much work to do. Luckily Steve my husband is a contractor. But sometime that is not so good because you know like the saying goes "The shoemakers children never have shoes" something like that.

We have the front of the house almost done but the rest is a work in progress. We ( I should say Steve) just put the roof on with new shingles made out of recycled baby diapers.

What a great story, and yes I believe in the Law of Attraction. I would love to walk inside of this house---they just don't build them like this anymore.

What a beautiful home! It's evident the love and care that you and your hubby have put into it. I like the way you painted the 3rd story the same color as the other two. Old homes can be a maintenance pain but they are soooo worth it. I'm so happy for you and your family!
