I knew I wanted to Get TXU in Houston but I had to wait until I actually moved to Texas — the good news is that I love it here and I was able to find an amazing little house right up the road from my work.

I think it’s a lot of fun to restore it back to its former glory and I know that one day soon this house is going to look just like I imagined. I’ve been doing a lot of research on the paint colors they used to use and things like that and I know that the city’s historical society will help me get the outside looking the way it’s supposed to.

I just can’t imagine why we don’t build houses like this anymore but there’s something to be said for chair rails and crown molding and making a place look different from every other house on the block. Why do we do such cookie cutter homes?
