The house wasn’t exactly what they’d wanted, but the location and price were right. It had charm, after all. It had obviously undergone some updates and renovations, but what house wouldn’t after standing for over 100 years? The one-inch oak planks on the floor, the wide cherry baseboards and trim, twelve foot ceilings, the beautiful pocket doors that led from the living room to the dining room; they all contributed to the structure’s personality. Ted had protested, claiming the home needed too many additional repairs, but Terry made the executive decision to buy the house. She hoped she wouldn’t regret it.
