About Tammy Thompson
We are a Mother & Daughter who together bought this home and have enjoyed living here ever since. We moved to Spokane from Eastern Oregon in 98 & decided it was too expensive to live alone so we bought this home together.
Both of us have been involved in our church, family & enjoy playing cards with friends. Between us we like to do crafts, read, music, sewing, quilting, enjoy family & the time outside BBQ ing & working in the yard & flower garden in the summer.
We love animals & only have an older cat currently, but did have many dogs, raised sheep, along with having chicken, ducks, horses, guard donkey, 1 pet calf, Calvin & probably others somewhere along the way, LOL!
Tammy Thompson purchased this house in 2000
Why Tammy Thompson chose Spokane
We chose this home & Spokane because of aging parents/grandparents & other family in the area. We lived here in the 80's & really liked it at the time.
This home was a HUD home and we have done a lot of work to it over the years & now enjoying more improvements w/more to come.
For some reason this home jumped out at us as we began looking. We felt that it was such a nice quiet neighborhood with a wonderful sense of peace & character that we could not pass it up. Our home is small, but is larger than it looks from the outside. The main part of house is large and open with lots of large windows to enjoy the outside country feel.
What makes this house unique
We were drawn to this home for many reasons. The openness inside, many large windows, the large lot with so many trees & in such a nice quiet neighborhood.
Inside the doorways are arched, which gives it character along with the little desk in the kitchen with the arched glass doors above with shelves.
Even the outside was very inviting to us. We came from an area with really no trees, so we looked for a place with trees, lots of trees! It is fun to sit outside & watch the quails & their babies going from one place to another & the squirrels all over going from one tree to another. Quite relaxing.
