    It's quite nice. I normally don't go for the country thing but this is understated and modernised.

    Hardly "radical" but I like the open space and light. And I want that dining table and chairs.

    see, the dining table, chairs, and chandelier would be the first thing out on the lawn with a "free" sign

    then i would chuck the lights in the kitchen, and the one in the bathroom and replace them with something less Home Depot.

    It's pretty, but not my style. I'm really not into the country look.

    I agree. I love the idea of a big long harvest table but I'd want something heavier, more rustic. And the uber-country chairs are not to my taste at all. I would change the lighting as well. LOVE the space though.

    I might add some color(a little too much white for me) and change some of the decor, but overall, the house interior and exterior are VERY nice. I love that open ceiling woodwork above the living room. I would also do alot more with the bathroom..nice as it is, but I would need 'more' than that..too minimalist for me.

    Great house overall!!!


    *and on a darker note..if you ever got really depressed, with those lovely wooden rafters in that lovely dining/living room, you could stage a very elegant hanging!
    Don't slap me, cause I'm not in the mood!

    I would kill for that bathroom and the backyard. Other than that, it just seems too white.
