We have been promising pictures and so we will now deliver! (Sorry it took so stinkin' long!)
So the picture order goes from Left to Right on each line.
This is the front door and then what you see when you walk in. So the first thing you see when you walk in is the stairs to the left which go upstairs to the four bedrooms and two bathrooms. Then you see the dining room and to the right of the dining room is what we are calling the "reading room" because library sounds too posh. As you can see we are going to need LOTS and LOTS of primer and paint to cover up that dark dark red!
Then you can go left out of the dining room through to the kitchen, living room, green room (which will be my craft room until we have kiddies) and slider to the outside. The kitchen is nice and big and where our inspector is standing is a huge island so that is nice. Off of the kitchen you also have our laundry room which in a perfect world would be upstairs but hey...the world isn't perfect so we will make do.
This is the slider to the outside. My plan for this ONE DAY...probably when all of our kids have moved out and are married with kids we will change this to be three sets of french doors. We want the whole wall to basically open up to the backyard. That is our vision for right now at least. That will probably change by the time we actually have any money to do it. Anyway when you go outside we have patio and grass and then it looks out to a golf course. We are right near the putting green so we shouldn't have to worry about any flying golf balls or "Flight of golf balls" is what it says in our loan documents, we thought that was funny. Then you can see the back of the house which is pretty plain. The balcony on the second floor which is called a "sunning deck" apparently goes to the master bedroom which for some reason I don't have pictures of. On the bottom floor you can see that there are two sliders. One leads into the kitchen dining area (not pictured) and the other leads, like you saw, to the living room. I don't have any pictures of the front of the house but it has this big turret which is basically like a tower looking thing which Brandon absolutely LOVES.
So that is our house, in a nut shell. We love it and we are excited about creating many happy memories there. It will look different in about two weeks when we paint the whole thing and then the next step is to change the carpet, paint the cupboards white, and MAYBE tile a bathroom. We are going to do everything ourselves so it will always be a work in progress. We can't wait!
