The front entrance feels a little tight when you first walk in. Coat closet door on the right needs to go…

 

Keep an eye on that skinny oak plank flooring. There are all KINDS of things you can do with this stuff. My neighbor ended up giving me all of his oak planks as well after he saw what I did with ours.

Very unexciting double garage which was too small for our cars anyway. Didn’t people drive vans and SUVs in 1997?

 

Back to the kitchen. Through the door is the formal dining room which opens into the living room at the front of the house.
