you might consider for flooring in kitchen that linoleum as Marmolite--very eco friendly-- is making a comeback--the original sheet type which needs installer who knows what he is doing or click-in planks that someone with some skill can install --

agree that the rounded edge on the counter is very retro and you might check out the new countertops that use recycled glass or even stainless steel itself if you are going for a more contemporary look...lots of homes in that era used tile but maintenance on tile is just not worth it IMO--but you could get funky tile backsplash

looks like most of the house is in good shape
does it have nice sized yard

don't you mind paying for living space and turning it back into garage--hope you got good enough price to do that w/o hurting yourself...
make sure you take that info to the tax appraisal right away---
or maybe they never were taxes on taking over the garage...

HEY! Speaking of the backsplash........ the glass tiles in all of the colors from that area might look really cool back there. The really small ones that can be a mix of different colors or just the light aqua greens or blues. Those are pretty cool looking and kind of retro mod in appearance.

Glass subway tiles are pretty cool too. I love cyber-decorating someone else's new home!

I think I did OK. I will definitely let the county know that that living space is no longer living space so they will cut the sq footage on the appraisal. The house's appraisal shows the garage space as living space, ie it has 2240 sq ft instead of the original footprint of 1820 sq ft.

The yard is a good size, hopefully not too large for me to manage on my own.

And I would never get a tile counter.
