Right now we’re going to talk about the one part of a new home that the experts say – you should not change right away. In fact they say leave it alone for at least the first year. And that is? The yard.
Specifically, we’re talking about moving into older homes with established landscaping and gardens. When you buy a house like that, chances are the previous owners previously planted a whole variety of flowers, shrubs and trees all over the property. If it’s a really old house some of that gardening activity could date back a hundred years.
But when you move in, you can’t see everything that’s been planted. Instead you just see how the house looks now and what it looked like in the month or two since you first saw, it when you went house hunting.

We’d like to leave you with a few thoughts about a certain room in the house. A room that not many people talk about any more. A room that may be falling out of style, as time passes. That soon may be as rare as the parlor, or the butler’s pantry. I hope not, though, because there’s just something wonderful about – the den.
Fact is, some of our younger listeners might have – never seen – a den. So for them, here’s what they are.
The den is a small room. Maybe 12 by 12 or smaller, usually located on the main floor of the house. You’ll usually find a comfy sofa and maybe an easy chair in the den…perhaps a TV or a bookcase, and nice soft lighting. Now, because of its size, you’ll only find two or three people in the den at any given time. It’s just too small for a big crowd.
