Finally a House Tour

Hello again everyone.  Happy New Year.  

I thought I would start off the new year with a long over due house tour.  We have already done so much to the new house, but everything is half done.  Hopefully, this year I will get a few rooms completely done to show you.

Our drive way is very long.  You can't see the house from the road it is on and as you can tell it is surrounded by trees on all sides.  So it is very private.  We have almost 5 acres.

The house is small but a tiny bit bigger than our previous house.

There is however a huge 3 and a half car garage.

From the garage, you enter directly into the utility/laundry room.

The laundry room was very dark and dirty.

The utility/laundry room connects to the 50's kitchen.  This is what the kitchen looks like right now.  We haven't done anything to it yet.  We are going to completely gut it at some point.  My haters probably love the way it looks now.  But I don't do brown so it is my least favorite room in the house. 

From the kitchen, you enter into the living room/dining room area.

The home has brand new hardwood floors throughout.  Guess what?  They are going to be painted white.  Gasp!  How dare I.  I hate wood so it has to go.

Off of the living room is the hallway that has the bedrooms and bathroom.  This is the one area that is 95 percent done.  I've already painted the floors in here and it is a huge improvement.

The first bedroom you come to is the largest of the two and we turned it into a dressing room/Walk in Closet.

In between the bedrooms is this unique 50's bathroom.  Plastic tiles galore.  This room will be completely gutted as well some day.  We may even add onto the house to expand the bathroom.  We will be getting quotes here soon.

When you walk into the bathroom the double vanity is directly in the middle of the room and you have to walk to the right to get to the toilet and the left to get to the shower.  A very unique floor plan.

The second bedroom is our bedroom.  It is almost done as well.  I have to make a couple changes and it will be finished.

One of the doors in the living room leads out to the back yard.

We added a temporary fence for our dogs.  This year, we will be building a deck where the temporary fence is now.

We have already done so much and there is a ton more to do.  But, we are excited to do every project in this house because it is our forever home.

If you were wondering what happened to our other house, we do have a renter.  She has expressed that she may want to purchase it at some point.  So we are perfectly happy with that.

I hope to be back soon with a few room reveals so stay tuned.
