Three bedroom house
- I'm Merilou Ziola, Dr. Odd's mom, and welcome to my crib. Our
house is in Westmont, Illinois and we moved here in 1973 when
the house was brand new.
is my kitchen. We had our kitchen remodeled in 2001 and I'm thrilled
with it now. We used to have dark stained cabinets, ala 1970's
Spanish style and now I have light maple cabinets and it lightens
up my kitchen considerably.
is my breakfast room. I am sitting at my kitchen bar area and
the breakfast room is behind me. I love my bay window which overlooks
the back yard; there is also a patio door going to a deck, and
this room faces south so there is always plenty of light.
is my living room. If I could change one thing it would be our
shelving unit which houses our TV. It is old fashioned with chrome
trim and I don't like it. Someday I will replace it. Please note
my darling cat Snickers on the coffee table.
is my dining room. Not too much to say about this room. We don't
use it too often so it stays pretty clean.
is our first floor office. I'm sitting at my computer where I
receive all of Z's e-mails daily and this is also where I check
his website. This is also my husband's office so we both spend
a LOT of time in this room as my husband works out of our home.
is my upstairs master bedroom. The furniture is my original bedroom
set from 1969 when I bought it. I also have a TV in here so I
like to lay here in the evenings watching HGTV on cable.
is one of our spare bedrooms. At one time, this was Z's bedroom.
Now it is a catchall room but I also have a desk and a typewriter
in this room. It is also a major storage area for my husband's
is my upstairs bathroom. Green is my favorite color so my fixtures
are a dusty green. They are the original fixtures from when the
house was built, but I still love the color and have no intentions
of changing them.
is my lower level rec room. We also have a TV down there and a
natural fireplace. I am standing next to my treadmill which unfortunately,
doesn't get too much use.
is my lower level laundry room. It is a big room with a nice window
so it gets good light. Also I have tons of storage in this room--and
it has a door going to the outside.
folks, thanks for touring our 1970's tri-level home. It is a great
home and fits our lifestyle just fine. Thanks for checking
out my crib, but I have dinner in the oven so get out of here!
