Time Flies

I am sorry for the lack of content. It has been difficult to post without having a computer at home. In positive news, the journey of the past two years to becoming home owners is finally over. We are the proud owners of a 1969 Ranch style home. It is in desperate need of paint and flooring, and we are doing what we can there. The square footage of living space is double what we had, and even though I don't get my very own sewing room, I will have a dedicated space that can be safe guarded from the grabby hands of toddlers.

Now onto the tour:

Here is our pink wallpapered Bathroom. It is currently stripped halfway, because o_O who wants pink wallpaper!?!

This is the Front living room, this has a passthorugh to the Family room. We chose a Gold paint for this room, and the hallway.

Here is the Dining Room looking into the Kitchen. The teeny tiny Kitchen. Luckily the closet on the other side of the wall is expendable, and we will be expanding. The Table and Hutch came with the house! We also found the extension leafs for the table we will be able to have lots of people over for dinner!

This is the Family Room. The wierd Black and white thing is a bookcase that will be moved out. We chose a dark green for this room, and Husband wants to put the TV on the wall. We will need to have the Pellet stove inspected before we can use it, but woo hoo a pellet stove!

Here you can sort of see one of the closets that line the far wall of the dining room. There are four of them and with a little cleaning, and modification, they will turn into the sewing space. I'll have to get better pics.

Another view of the living room and the front door. Notice the crystal Chandelier. This picture does not do justice to the amount of dust and grime covering it. I think I will take it down and clean it up, but so many other things to do first.

Both the front yard and the back yard are good sized, and the neighbors have all dropped by to say hello. We haven't even been there a week, and I know more neighbors here than I ever met at any of the other places I've lived.

So that's my new house! We are still in heavy cleaning mode before we can move in, but the rewards are priceless. Now if only I could figure out how to raise money to replace the flooring. . . :)
