A New Home

On May 27, 2010, we closed on our first home! It's a great ranch with a raised family room & kids' bedrooms with a partial basement. It's about 2,000 sq. ft which is double what we are living in now. The Lord allowed us to get a great price and has obviously led us to this home. We'll be doing some renovations over the summer before we actually move in. Here's a tour of the new place in the BEFORE conditions!

First view from the front door into the living room

From the sliding glass door view. Right side has the front door & the door from the double garage. Coat closet straight ahead with a strange cubby too small for a fridge, but with an outlet in the back.

Breakfast bar & kitchen cabinets in the living room (will be relocated)

Cabinets from the living room will be moved to the left wall. Green sink, stove top, and oven will be removed. Paint the cabinets and new countertops is the plan.

Dining room Mucho paneling and rock stickers! Painted finished drywall has been found under this paneling!

Cool archways throughout. Entrance to the master "suite."

Master bedroom side

Master bathroom side - it's in the same room as the bedroom - no walls to separate. Yes that is an "outhouse" built around the toliet. The inside is also lined with paneling. A nice fake brick wall is the background.

Luxurious tub - no shower - only tub in the house

Great mirror tiles line the walls with a relaxing bench in the corner.

Strange place for a linen closet - it won't be there forever!

Family room

Family room looking down to the dining room & kitchen

Maleia's "Bubble" Room

Bright blue bathroom with shower - only shower in the house

Lincoln's room with shag carpet that isn't shaggy any longer

Hallway from family room to kids' bedrooms and basement door is ahead

Looking down the basement steps - yes that is carpet on the walls.

Nice electric stove - note the outlet & plug from the "brick" wall. :)

Laundry room

Backyard pics - about 3/4 acre
Pavilion is 18' by 24' - very nice. Just needs some paint & a roof soon

The center doorway is from the master bedroom. The paver patio is decent size.

Better look at the fireplace.
front porch

Maleia was supposed to be in this pic, but she's off the the side crying & ready for lunch.

2 car garage
