Our First Home

Hello all and welcome to our first home.

I choose to start a little blog about our handsome 1915 American Foursquare because after I found out that we were indeed going to own a home of this type - I furiously began searching out info and history of such homes... The most interesting and useful information came from other home owners sharing their trials and tribulations / loves and losses with their homes; most being first time home buyers...

So, as a matter of “giving back" I decided to log the adventures that me and my wife have in our lovely new nest. I make early apologies for my tardiness in posting, but I hope in the end this little slice in the megabyte pie of blogging finds itself to be slightly useful and a tad entertaining.

Accompanying this post are a few images of our new abode.


  1. Looks interesting. I can't wait to see more photos.

    It's nice that the original 1 car garage is still present - too often, they fall victim to the desire for more space, and the original garages match the proportions of the houses so well.

  2. Thanks for the FIRST comment...
    We will try to keep up on pictures and updates as time goes by... keep an eye out!

  3. Congratulations! Your new place looks to be a real beauty--all that fabulous woodwork. Can't wait to see how you make it your own. Best wishes!

  4. A late Congrats to you! You are absolutely right about finding the best info. on other's blogs. We will be moving into our foursquare(also our first house) in June and I'm hoping to start blogging about any improvements we make. Keep up the good work! Your house is beautiful!
