Wow...first and foremost, I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your previous house (and possessions). While it is true that there should be joy in the fact that no one was hurt, the loss of possessions, many of which carry a great deal of emotional and nostalgic significance, is a truly horrible thing, and I can't begin to imagine the emotional toll that would wreak. Again, I'm so sorry.
But, looking at what bright side there is to be had from such an awful situation, you did come away with an absolutely gorgeous Arts and Crafts bungalow! PLEASE post pictures of the inside!
