In response to overwhelming popular demand one kind request, I am posting a handful of exterior photos of the star of Bungalow ‘23. Here you go, Leah– enjoy!

Front Door

This is the front of the house as seen from the front steps. Take note of the massively overgrown cluster of lilac stalks while you can– they are going to be severely pruned starting this winter.

Front Corner

Prominent in the front corner view is the sunroom. It is one of our favorite places in the house. Our beagle likes to keep an eye on the mailman from the couch on the other side of these windows.

Side View

The side view is partially blocked by the boulevard tree, but you can see the significant elevation of the lot and the length of the house. God help me when it’s time to replace those retaining walls.

Rear Corner with 2002 Addition

This rear corner view shows some of the landscaping along the street and a great view of the 2002 addition consisting of a pantry and utility room on the main level, an upper level bedroom, and a storage crawlspace off the garage below grade.I’m planning to add a permanent page to show some exterior and interior photos (as well as a photo of yours truly and family for friends who haven’t seen us in a while). Until then, I hope you enjoy the show.

Actually, Jocelyn, we have gotten a little water in the basement due to poorly placed downspouts, not topography. On the front of the house I directed a downspout away from the foundation and haven’t had any problems. In back there is a downspout that caused me trouble last winter because it deposits the water on a part of the yard that is perpetually shady. The water would freeze on the ground and create a huge patch of ice that, when melting, made the laundry room wet once or twice. I’ll have that one fixed before the snow flies.
