Before we moved anything into the house, I took a few pictures. Again, these are all with my phone. I really need to break out my camera soon. But I wanted to share these, as we have been living here for almost 3 months already.
This is the view from the entry way. To the left is the Blue Room, and the right is the upstairs. The wall straight back to the left is the pantry, and behind that - the kitchen.
One side of the Blue Room. Now you know where it gets the name - blue carpet.
The other side of the Blue Room... those windows! (If you can look past the curtains)
Remember how we moved in December- and look at how green the grass was!
The kitchen. This window has the same view as you see above. through the wall on the left is the Blue Room, and on the right you can see the cabinets that came down.
The eat in kitchen area.
The view from the kitchen area to the downstairs.
Standing in the same place as the above photo, looking back at the front door.
After you go down about 4 steps, this is the living room.
This is the basement. It is below front door and the blue room. That door goes out to stairs that take you into the garage... the only place that you can get from the garage to the inside. I love that even in the basement there is a huge window.
The other side of the basement.
One of my favorite features of the house... the workshop.
This is the guest room- which is bigger than all three bedrooms in our old house put together. This is on the same level as the living room.
At the top of the stairs is Henry's room.
And the master, with our own private deck!! And more ugly curtains.
The view from the deck...
The small, but perfectly fine master bath.
I love the big closest in the master... with built in shoe racks.
Zoey's room. She had taken a bag of toys over to see the new house. And already made a mess. This was actually the first demo that we did.... that built in desk was cute, but was leaning off the wall... hanging on by a nail. I didnt want anyone to get hurt, so off it went.
This is the kids bathroom. Lovely blue... They kids love that they get to go potty in a blue toilet :)
This tub is actually amazing... wide and deep. Will likely not replace it, and get it refinished instead.
So that is the house before we moved it, and started to make it our own. There is years of work here... but we are so excited about it. And when it gets too overwhelming, we just look at the view, and remind ourselves that this is our forever home, and we can take our time making it perfect!
