The big news is that we're moving! There's a buzz all around town (it doesn't take much to amuse us small town Wyoming folk!) and we're starting to pack boxes to move at the end of the month.
We've been looking for over a year for a bigger place to rent. In this town, and in this economy, there's not much to choose from and every time something became available, it just didn't meet our needs. Either it wasn't enough of an increase in size to make it worth the effort, or it was in an undesireable location, or it was bigger but not as nice on the inside as our current house.
The house we're moving into was built in 1895 and in the early 1900's it was called the Stoner Mansion. It's WAY too much house for us, but since we've been looking for so long, we didn't know when another house would come available and we have just reached our limit (in space and in patience) with our 800 sqft house.
So we're going from one of the smallest houses in town
to one of the biggest houses in town
It's a beautiful Victorian with 4 bedrooms, an office, a sunroom (SUPER excited about this one), a real dining room and plenty of room to have guests. There is lots of original woodwork, a dishwasher (BONUS!), even a second set of "servants" stairs leading from the basement to the kitchen.
To me, we might as well be moving to Downton Abbey.
