That garage is coming off the house as soon as the ground in thawed in the spring. We are going to extend the driveway into the backyard and put a 2.5 car garage in the back (we have checked with the village zoning department and they are ok with this). Because the garage in it’s current state is awful.

Massive old oak tree. It is the largest tree in the neighbourhood. We are actually going to have to rake!

Dining room towards the kitchen. You can see the stairs to the basement. Right beside those stairs is the powder room. And the open door in the kitchen is to the sunroom.
