Hadley’s House

Hadley’s house was first bought by her parents, Clare and Frank Hines, right after their marriage. It started out as a single story and they worked to add on to it so they could start a family of their own. Today, Hadley and her two children live in it. Until today recently, the house has remained largely unchanged from the way her parents left it.

Inside, you’ll find a short hallway that leads to the kitchen, living room, and upstairs.

In the kitchen, there’s a larger table now. Four chairs is fine when it’s just Hadley, the kids, and Carter, but Alison is often over and has nowhere to sit for dinner. So a bigger table had to happen.

In the living room are lots of family photos and even one of Hadley’s paintings.

Through the living room is Nora’s room, which has gotten a little bigger but otherwise has remained unchanged since it was Joshua’s.

Downstairs in the new basement is a bathroom.

And a music-cum-exercise room. On the left is one of Hadley’s paintings.

Upstairs, the landing has changed quite a bit.

This bathroom got shifted over a little to make room next to the stairs.

Shirley’s old room now belongs to Joshua and I’ve finally gotten around to redecorating in something a little more masculine.

The master bedroom has also had a little redecorating, now in something a little less masculine.

The bathroom remains unchanged.

Below are floor plans for the first and second floors. The basement is only two rooms, so I left it off for now.
