So, since no one looks at this blog anymore anyway, I figured it was a decent way to let y'all see pics of the house and i could explain it as we go :)
This is what you see as you come in the front door.
If you look to the left there is this room (this will be a music room/office)
This super cool fireplace is part of the original house and in the room. and yes, that's a cast iron front and some kind of funky green tile :)
This bathroom is in the same room. It's technically a half bath although in all fairness a cruise ship bathroom would seem like a master suite compared to this bathroom! The guy who was with us yesterday looking at things for us said you could wash your hands while you went to the bathroom and that would save time :)
This room is to the right when you walk in.
There is another original fireplace behind that super huge tv.
kitchen (it's also on the left after the music room/office)
This would be the dining room and is in the same space as the kitchen. You can see the corner of the kitchen counter in the corner of the picture. The doors open to the back is a room where the ceiling fell (we think its from a swing ro something like that hanging) I want to make this room a mud/laundry room. There's a door to the outside in this room.
Master bath. there's a tub/shower around that corner. and yes, it's orange!
The master is on the right across from the kitchen/dining area and if you keep going past all that you get to this room. It's a bar :) It would for the short-term be our kids room.
It has 2 rooms off of it one of which is this room and would be Cadence's space. The other room is just like this without a closet. It would probably be where we kept all the kids clothes until the upstairs was complete.
The stairs "L" up to the second floor and there is this landing at the top of the stairs. That door closes off the upstairs from the rest of the house. Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms and a bathroom.
This is one of the bedrooms
This is the 4th bedroom and is as big as the 1st 2. It would probably be the 3 boys room. and those walls are actually complete. we'd just have to figure out what to do with them to make them not look like wood. So, any ideas are welcome!
and then there's the outside. This is the porch on the front.
Side with the porch.
This is the outbuilding that right now looks like a wood working shop right now.
and this is up the front walk to the front door. The white on the left bottom side of the door is we think where one of their dogs messed up the door. so that will need to be fixed too.
So, there it is! There's much to be done (obviously) so we'll just have to see how the next month goes.
