Well, I finally got around to taking a few pictures of our house.
Its been a busy month and the house is far from finished… but we’ve made good head way… so here is a 1st glimpse for you all to see.
Also be sure to read our Journey to our Home HERE.
I’ll start in the basement.
That is our boys “toy room” but it also will second as a guestroom.
The toy room also is connected to a full bath and deck. Which will be nice for guest.
The sofa in the toy room is a sleeper sofa, so when guest come we will just pull that out.
I love being able to have a space to shove all the boys toys… it has really helped with night time clean up and not having to deal with “toys throughout” the home… one place for all that is so much better!
The room had built in shelves in a closet as well as on one wall, which was perfect!
This is the back deck that leads out from the toy room….
It has a ramp that leads down to stairs, that then takes you to the backyard.
Our backyard is almost an acre, maybe less? we aren’t 100% sure hah…
Behind the tree’s is a wonderful creek that our boys adore!
Ok, back inside, the toy room leads to this room…
Our packed full office/photo editing/sewing room.
Can you tell my husband loves books? We built that shelf out of plain pieces of wood and cement blocks.
When you go upstairs from the basement you will enter our living room space.
The painting on the mantel is from the very talented Melissa Payne Baker.
I just got it and I am in love with it. She is a friend/client of mine and painted it just for me.
It represents our old COR home’s view. Which we so miss!
The living room opens up into our very spacious and much loved kitchen.
The kitchen has a walk in pantry, which is awesome!
and as you can see, lots of great window light…
The dining room where we eat as a family is connected with a hall way, close by the kitchen.
Across the hall from the dining room is our school room.
It is still being organized… we have some book shelves in the works for it.
Also there is a HUGE hammond organ left from the previous owners.
We plan to sell it :) – since its big and a bit in the way.
The chalk board was also left by the previous owners ;-) its the real deal too!
Here is a glimpse back towards the dining room.
and…. for now, thats all I got :) – I will take some photos upstairs once that is “cleaner” LOL – its still a wreck!
