house pics

For those who don't know, we just moved into the Poet's old house. I finally can take pictures, so here's the living room and dining room. We don't have a table yet. I will get a nice one when my car sells.
Here's the view from the kitchen. Matthew removed some cabinets that hung over the counter blocking the view. I like it better without them. We will put them on the wall instead, so we're only losing a corner one.
I'll put a picture of the kids room later. The other room upstairs will be a play room/guest room. It's not finished yet. There are sinks outside the bathroom that we plan to remove, and put a small sink inside the bathroom. We hope to gradually make some other changes too, like new carpets, deck, and possibly a fireplace. But just as it is this house is beautiful and feels a little more like home every day!

Very spacious and beautiful! It sure helps to have a "handyman" around for all the remodeling jobs.

Very nice! It will be fun for you to make the changes you want over time.

I wrote out a bunch of comments last night, and then lost it all... Yes, all the changes you are doing are ones we wanted to do. We just didn't hang out long enough. Especially that upstairs bathroom thing. We always thought it was kind of dysfunctional! I can't believe we have been down here almost twice as long as we were there! Don always wanted to make a swimming pool under the house with that extra resevoir! (sp?) The hillside out front of the house I wanted to plant all kinds of flowers for an english garden type look. _Of course, that does take work!

I'm glad that you guys got in to the Poet's old house. That will be a nice place for you over the years to come :-)
