History comes forth
So far we have found out that our new house has a style ~ it's known as Tudor Revival or Storybook. It was cool to find out that info as I had always referred to it as the Swiss Chalet house. We also found out that it was originally built for the Sisters of St. Catherines Convent to be used as a parochial school. It only operated as such for about four years, was then sold and converted into apartments. It has been used as an apartment building since the 1930's. It is interesting how many people that Robert has spoken to have said they or someone they have known once lived there. In any case, we are planning to turn it into a single family dwelling. It has lots of room/rooms for the kids but it is going to take awhile to get it to where we imagine it can be. Wish us luck.
