The Perry House Returns

I’ve been thinking a lot about the house on Perry Street while here in sunny Florida. Mostly because we have to come back to our realtor with our final decision. Go for the house or no?

I still very much want the house. But what should we do? I’ve been praying about it without getting a clear direction. Scott thinks this is the best time to invest in a business. We still aren’t sure what to do.

So, I thought I would show you pictures of the upstairs. It is hideous, to say the least. It needs some paint and new floor coverings. There is four bedrooms in the upstairs and a full bathroom. I will save the bathroom for another post.

Here they are-


This is the landing as you come up the stairs.

Bedroom #1



Bedroom #2



Bedroom #3





Lots of work, right?

But I can’t imagine having all of that space!

What changes would you make? I was thinking of painting all the paneling. Do you agree? Carpet or try to do hardwood?

Four bedrooms with four closets. That just boggles my mind. Plus there is a bedroom on the main floor.  That kind of space would be fantastic.

I will keep you updated as things happen. When a decision is made- you will hear about it.

Thanks for looking!


  1. What color are you thinking of painting the paneling? Do you know what's under it? Or how long it would take/how hard it would be to remove?

  2. We will be priming and painting the paneling with white. I'm not sure what would be under the paneling. But I'm okay with leaving it and just painting it.
