Our New Home

Here are the pictures promised of our new home...

2,160 livable square feet and the lot size is  120x123.

The front outside isn't that attrative in my opinion, but the inside makes up for it. Yes, you are seeing correctly, two front entrances, no it's not a duplex.  One entrance goes into the family room (left door by garage), the other entrance goes into the living room.   The awnings have got to go!  I'm thinking maybe we can build some better looking ones.  I'm looking forward to landscaping this yard to make it more attractive!

Here is the family room looking towards the road.  The fireplace is not a keeper, I think it's ugly, and the inspector says that it is unusable anyway.  In th future we plan on abandoning this chimney and fireplace and putting in a gas fireplace in the living room.  This room looks like a great playroom, once we do something with that fireplace. 

Here is the dining area.  These pictures do not do this house justice.  It is much nicer in person.  The Kitchen and dining area are very spacious.  In the future maybe one can convince SuperDaddy that we need a patio door off the dining area. 

Here is the kitchen.  The house came with a dishwasher.  Yipee!!! Without the dishwasher being included SuperDaddy was thinking of not having a dishwasher.  I'm glad this Mom doesn't have to live without a dishwasher!  We must purchase the stove and fridge, you know what that means, it's time to watch craiglist

This is the Living room looking out towards the road again. 

This is the other side of the living room. There is the second entrance to the house. Behind that wall are the stairs to go upstairs

This is the main level full bathroom.  The only inconvenient thing of the house is that both bathrooms are fairly small.  But I'm glad to sacrifice that for the nice size living space.  And wait til you see the master bedroom....

Again, you see the pictures do not do justice.  This is only a 1/3 of the master bedroom.  It is actually quite huge!!  And after we get the keys next week, I will have to take more pictures, so you can get a better idea.

This is the upstairs full bathroom, yes it is small.  However, there is a full size bath behind the door.

This is the back yard.  I will have to upload more pictures of the yard as well.  The yard needs some work.  The grass needs a lime treatment and it all needs a little TLC with some nice landscaping.  However, the first thing that needs to be done is...raking, lots of raking!

There you have it! Our New Home!  Closing date is next week on the 21st.  Then it's off to Florida for 2 weeks, we willing be leaving friday the 23rd...God-willing.

Another adorable picture of peanut...
