The garage in the back of the house, and the lawn that will eventually get real grass.

The "mutual drive" between our house and the neighbours'. We each use this driveway to reach our garages in our backyards.

The steps on the back porch. The inspector immediately identified them as dangerous, and indeed, shortly thereafter, Kat wiped out on them. :-p

The kitchen. We'll be repainting the cupboards and replacing the countertop.

Some larger cupboards. We don't know if they're staying or going. But we could certainly put more counter space there.

In the basement. The walls are drywalled, but not painted. The floor is just painted concrete. There's new wiring and 100 Amp service, though.

A place under the stairs with a drain, but no water pipes. (?!)

The main floor, other than the kitchen, is a combination living room / dining room. This is the view from the kitchen.

There was a bird here, but it's not staying. :-)

There's even a bit of stained glass in the living room. The fireplace isn't really one; it's just a mantle with nothing behind it. But we could put a gas fireplace there.

There used to be a wall between the living room and dining room. When it was taken out, the floors were patched up badly. We'll have to fix that.

The stairs to the top floor. There's likely hardwood under there; we'll check, and if so, refinish it along with the rest of the floors.

The back room upstairs. Upstairs consists of three bedrooms and a bathroom.

The bathroom. [In the basement, there's piping for another bathroom, and we'll probably put one in eventually.]

The shower has very poor water pressure, but the adjacent sink doesn't seem to. So perhaps replacing the faucet and/or showerhead will fix that.

There's a large closet in the hallway that's quite deep, but has got no shelving. Nothing a quick trip to a home store couldn't fix.

There's an aerial (assumedly completely nonfunctional) on the roof.

Luckily, right across the street, there's a flyer for TV antenna removal.

The paved part of the front yard is even legal parking.
