The ground floor is partially finished including a bedroom, laundry room, half bathroom, and entry into the garage. There is also a storm shelter located under the front porch. Fresh yellow paint on the garage door adds cheeriness to the north side of the house. There are many potential uses for the ground floor also with ample space to expand the finished area.
