Photo Tour

Things are not moving forward as fast as we hoped with our new house. All the paperwork is signed, but we still don't have the keys. Isn't that how it always goes? Anyway, we got our realtor to let us in for a little while this morning so we could measure the windows for blinds. As luck would have it...I remembered my camera! So while I'm sitting here amidst mess and boxes, eagerly awaiting house keys, I thought I'd share some photos.

The House

This is in our front yard, too. It needs a little TLC, but it has potential.

Living Room
Living Room from the other angle...I don't know what we're going to do with that little cut-out under the stairs. I have a few ideas.

This is not a great shot, but it gives you perspective...you can see where the stairs are in relation to the kitchen, dining room and downstairs bathroom.

Dining Room

Kitchen

Our fantastic realtor brought us a welcome bucket.


Pantry...isn't it great?
Back Yard

It's hard to get a feel for the size of things...but the yard on this side of the house alone is 20 ft wide.

Master Bath

The Master Closet...notice it turns a corner at the end.

I took picture of the bedrooms and other bathrooms and a few other things, but without furniture, they all look the same. You'll get pictures one day.

I can't take it!!!!! I want your house!!! AMAZING. I am so in love!!!!! (if you couldn't tell by the numerous exclamations!!) Everything is beautiful. Everything. Great yard, amazing pantry, tiled kitchen floor (yeah, maybe a basic, but I don't have tile and want tile), huge closet, great kitchen storage. And a welcome basket? That realtor knows how to get her customers to make referrals!!! SO awesome. I'm so happy for you guys! The front is also beautiful, by the way.

Beautiful house and yard! Great choice. I love all the storage it seems to have in the closets and pantry. The whole moving process always takes a LONG time! I bet you cant wait to move in.

It looks beautiful!! I love homes, especially ones with nice backyards. That is one thing I miss about the south. They know what a yard is!!

Your house looks fabulous! I love all the storage space (huge pantry, giant bedroom closet!) I am truly envious. I'm sure you will have it decorated in true Katie fashion in no time. We will definately need to see pictures again once you moved in and settled. Hey let us know when you are going to be in town so we can try and get together, okay?
Again, congrats on the house it looks awesome!

Wow Katie, GREAT house! I have to say my favorite thing is that pantry!! Ours is about half that size, and I probably RE-organize it every couple of months! Looks like the yard is great sized for three boys too!

Kelly said...

Looks like a great house! Love the size of the yard! Wish we could get something like that in So Cal!

And that's funny that you mentioned you have pictures of us canoeing in Young Women's. I totally don't remember! Does that mean I'm getting old?

Valarie said...

Oh my! That is a beautiful house! The pantry is to DIE for! Food storage, here you come!! :) The yard looks amazing and the grass is so pretty!! The grass is Florida SUCKS! Kids don't play outside in it because it rips big gashes in your feet. :(
