Interestingly enough she has a house very similar to me. Her house was dropped off at the railway station as the #1 Fir Special from the Hudson's Bay Company for a ridiculous sum by today's standards. Her house is 100 years old.
Our house is a newer version of the same house, built in the 30's and dropped off by the railway as well. There is one more like it also in the neighbourhood. My house is a wee bit bigger and this particularly shows up in the two hallways. Her floors are wider planks, her trim is wider and the interior doors are one recessed panel while mine have two.
She has hallway envy and I have front door envy!
She enters from her back porch. We have no back porch and our back door was closed off and the kitchen plumbing was brought up through it by the previous owners. (???) Hmm, we had a side door at the basement stairway. She doesn't.
Old houses are always needing something. So we learn together. We also have very different decorating preferences. But it is great to dream and talk and work and problem solve together.
