Are You a Fixer-Upper Freak?

A country shack spotted near downtown Round Top, Texas.

If you looked at this photo and immediately said, "Awww," like you'd seen a puppies face, and then you started mentally coming up with color schemes and moving walls around, you might be a fixer-upper freak.  When you see a place like this on This Old House, and your mate says, "No way!"  and you're saying, "They only have to take off the roof, add two more floors, a couple of baths and a basement," then you might be a fixer-upper freak.  You know who you are...and I want to hang out with you.

Note to Tall Husband:  You are great at house mechanics: electrical wiring, plumbing and etc., but please leave painting and the aesthetics to me.  The last time you got your hands on a caulking gun and brown caulking,  the place looked like Betty Crocker got pissed and frosted our house.


  1. LOL... I think there are many of us to hang out with then... my Ricky just shakes his head and laughs at me...

    I also often find myself dreaming of the life, lived and gone by, in the relics of the field...

    always a pleasure to read... blessings.

  2. I love it...this could be quite a place with a little imagination and a lot of money....

  3. Hmmm...I don't think I'm feeling the love here! Though I can see why SOMEONE ELSE might! I once fixed up a camp that looked a lot like this building. But that was a while ago and, though I am a fixer-upper, I think I'll pass. If someone actually did fix this up though, I'd love to see the results! What fun!
