So, the moment you've been waiting for -
A walking tour of our house:
This is from the front door, looking thru the first living room into the sunken second. Hardwoods in the first and new carpet in the second. The second has a pellet stove and instead of brick the whole wall/chimney part is rock. I love the sunken part . . . very 1970's which is my favorite decade.
This is from the sunken LR looking into the dining room. Never had a dining room before . . . we'll have to get some chairs for our table. The sliding door leads to the back deck and 2 back yards . . . but we'll get to that in a minute.
From the dining room to the kitchen; dishwasher and stove and fridge come with; all new flooring and cabinets just put in for the guy to sell the house. Next to the slider there is a hallway that leads to the master bed and bath.
Master bedroom. Yes, that is cedar paneling painted what could only be called a faded version of mauve . . . who paints cedar!!??!?!?! . . .with wine carpet. Ghastly. But we'll get it changed out as the money becomes available. Huge room, tho. And that slider leads right onto the deck.
This is Maggie's yard, and we get to keep all that flagstone to use in the yard! At the very front of the fence, like right where Kev was standing to that the picture, is the gate into the other part of the yard where the deck is.
This is the other part of the yard, taken from the deck. Plenty of room for the sand box and swingset. And that back fence is actually about 4 feet from the actual back fence and conceals a huge planter box area that runs the width of the yard. Not sure why they put up the front fence to cover it but at least we can plant back there if we want.
The yard needs some work obviously but we'll get to that as we can. We're soooooo excited to finally be buying our own home after 8 long, long years of renting. And this place needs a little work but it's mostly cosmetic so we'll just have a running lists of projects to be working on.
And Kev forgot to take a picture of the front of the house so I'll post that later, after the next time we go by there.
Anyway, I told you it was gonna be a long post so hopefully you're still with me. I'll keep you posted as we get closer to closing and moving day - we're looking at moving our stuff in on July 4-5. Guess it's a good thing we didn't have plans for 4th of July weekend!
