A little follow-up from Matt cleaning/demo in the basement.. Here's a little peek of what it looks like... Brick arches at the base of the center chimney. There are two brick arches side by side which support the massive center house chimney. One of the aspects of the house which is often unseen but we love.

Can't get enough demo!! This time working on the basement. I'm not sure why, it seems pretty clean down there 😜
The brick work is pretty cool down there and it's weird to imagine that it's where the kitchen was originally located way back in the day.

FourSquare Friday.....The American FourSquare is a post-Victorian house type that emerged during the early 1900's. It was an architectural reaction against the ornateness & complexity of Victorian homes. Typical FourSquare characteristics include a square plan, hip roof, wide eaves, central attic dormer & front porch. Downers Grove has approximately 130 of these homes still standing.🏑 This is one of the many FourSquare homes in DG. This one in not yet landmarked. #vintagehome #vintagehomes

The throw blanket on the table with pumpkins didn’t last long #kidsspillallthethings! I guess the table is on strike until it can be adorned with greenery and all things Christmas!!! The clock in the corner will be going on a field trip somewhere else for the holidays to make room for a tree!!! #icanNOTwait 🌲 In other news, if you are brave, and we have a judgement free zone kinda friendship, check out my stories!!! πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ You can see the before of the upstairs bathroom that we’re finally working on! πŸ™ˆ We’re hoping to have it all wrapped up tomorrow! The bathroom wasn’t on our home tour, AND it’s got NOTHING on the bonus room that we’ll do next! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆπŸ™ˆ

When my dad and I first installed the brick above the fireplace I wanted to paint it white. He and @iamdavemccann talked me down and I'm SO glad they did. The warmth the natural look adds is πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ. #thisoldhome #themccannmantle

One of my fave parts in our home is the dining room. I feel like it's a collection of my style. Yeah it's not super fancy or expensive but neither am I lol.

If these walls could talk...it’s probably why I love old homes so much. They have a story to tell. And boy, do I love a good story!
