For the majority of my life I’ve loved older homes … the main reason being all the charm that’s built into them. No two seem to be alike and I love that. I once lived in a brand new home in a new subdivision and many of my neighbors had the same floor plan as me. I quickly learned that I prefer old and charming over new and efficient. One thing that I love about older homes is they often come equipped with unique built-in cupboards. Of course, you’ll find amazing built-ins in a custom new home, too. I found some beauties over at Houzz!

It’s one of many things that attracted me to this house.
On a completely different note …
