Because I don't want to overwhelm this first post with an avalanche of photos, I'm going to show the entire house in a series of posts. Also, the layout of the house will make more sense once I get John to upload a blueprint of the house. And then later, I'll have him upload the blueprints for the planned renovations.
But first things first. Come on in...
Upon entering, you are greeted with this *warm and inviting* oasis of concrete. A view to your left,
and to your right.
At least there is some greenery down the side of the house... It goes without saying that there will definitely be some changes made to the front entry of the house.
Open the front door, and you are greeted with this monstrosity of a staircase.
***Spoiler alert: the spiral staircase is the first thing to go.
