Tour De Casa

First off, let me say that I am embarrassed by the quality of these photos. I wanted to take pictures of our home before the mess of boxes and disorganization took over! But darnit, I was too excited to get moved in so these pictures were taken in haste. I apologize. 

Anyways, enough with the pleasantries. Welcome to our home!
Front entry way. There is a storage closet immediately to the left. You can see the hallway past that which leads to the two guest bedrooms and guest bath.
Immediately to the right of the entry way is our kitchen.
 Oh, pantry, you have been greatly missed. 
The kitchen flows into the living room.
 French doors take you out to the back deck. The large brick fire place to the right is one of my favorite features!
 And then the ceilings...LOVE. THEM. We have the same exact wood, vaulted ceilings in our master bedroom.
To the far left of the living room is another hallway that leads to the master bedroom. Also in that hallway is our laundry room. I decided not to take photos of the bedrooms/bathrooms just yet because the lighting was so terrible. Soon though, my friends! 

And here is our three stall garage..aka Huckleberry's new dog house while I'm at work. It has 3 skylights and windows all along the back and sides. The upstairs is going to be converted into Steven's "man cave" in time. I think it makes sense that the dog and the hubby share a play room ;) {Men and dogs just have so much in common, you know?}
Our to-do list is already a mile long but we are so excited to start this new chapter in our lives! I simply cannot wait till we are married and living here together. {There are a lot of spiders crawling about that I need Steven around to kill.} 

Priorities, people. Priorities.

I'm hoping to house hunt in the next few years.. the market is great now.. Lets hope it holds for us buyers! CONGRATS!

Katie said...

Gorgeous home! I adore the vaulted ceilings and French doors. I can't wait until I can actually OWN a home. With all my potential moving around I have no idea when I will be settled. Enjoy every minute of it (minus the moving, which is always a pain). :)

Maggie said...

Beautiful home!!! Home-ownership will certainly cause you to respect priorities more than anything!

Enjoy it!!

Oh, nice! Your home really looks cozy and beautiful! I love how the exterior design integrated with the interior as well. Uhm, you don’t only have one, but three skylights, huh! That’s really great! Were you the one who installed it or was it already there when you bought the house?
