I'm NOT Moving but...

Well, I had a great listing that I wanted to show today but while working on this post
I discovered that all the photos are copyrighted and I'm not able to show them.
Then I started a search and found more information on this property
but still no photos to share.
I did find out that it sold three years ago for $35,000.00!!!
and they are currently asking $79,000.00 and the estimated value of the place is $88,000.00
on some searches
and as high as $121,000.00 other places.
It needs A LOT of WORK but as I've said before, 
I'm not moving, but....

It sits and 5.2 acres, obviously it's more about the land.
The owner is selling through a FSBO website and then it occurred to me that I could just post a link to it for your viewing! 
I know it's inconvenient to have to do this but I really think you need to see the photos to appreciate my IDEAS.
So, HERE it is!
and here are my ideas for the place.
(All links for these images can be found on my Pinterest board entitled FARMHOUSE.)

First I would redo the exterior in white siding and lots of windows for more light -

and a porch with grey floors in the front-

and an enclosed porch to the side or maybe something like this -

and a metal roof, but in a blue-grey color -

and then around back would be an enclosed porch with room for a pool-

Inside I would have exposed beams and skylights-

and have it kinda Modern but still Country -

and have things Simple, Natural and White-

and then a Big Barn in a Beautiful Turquoise color -

because I would need a barn for HORSES! -

and maybe some little lambs -

and then I'd need a truck, to haul around my family -
I mean, if I was moving, but I'm not.

I have to admit that I really didn't like that house, I'm not sure why though. Perhaps the strange angles between the walls?

Where would You put all Your dogs if You want a white home :-) :-) :-) There's nothing like naturally white if You have dogs :-) :-) :-)

Have a great day!

Christer, The dogs would have the kitchen and the 3 season porch when they weren't outside running around chasing the chickens.
Oh, wait.
Now I need a chicken coop too!

I'm glad you're not moving because I'm not seeing any charm in that house. I love your vision though. The modern country kitchen is pretty darn cool. Can't you just do that to your house?
