if you remember last week's post , you may be wondering what attracted us to buy our house in the first place….it needed tons of work and wasn't very attractive! 
the reason?
THE WATER!!! and the yard!!
when we bought this house 10+ years ago, it was around 1700 sq ft…..2 kids later, we were pretty cramped!
 time to add on!!!…we basically doubled the size of the house and now it's ideal. we vaulted every ceiling on the second floor so it no longer felt like a claustrophobic cape cod... and we maxed out the windows on the back to enjoy the river views.

not crazy about the table….but it was inherited from my parents after they
 downsized….works for now...
