Let me take you on a tour.

Come right on in ... oh wait ...first I have to check the mail ...


Okay ... let's walk on up the driveway to the house. I hope you really enjoy the house. We've worked really hard to get the house, and a lot of people have worked really hard to build it with us, for us.


Come on in ... The storm door, was something I'll never forget being put together! It took a WHOLE day! It's made by Pella. You'd think storm doors that are that expensive would be a little less complicated!


First, we come to the kitchen. I can't believe I have so many cabinets and drawers! Where I am now, I have ONE drawer and ONE cabinet!!!
No longer will we have to 'store' our skillets on the stove when not in use.
Across from the kitchen, is the living room. We had the choice of an 8 foot wall at the door, but it was just for decoration and to devide the room. I liked the openess of the space ... I think it makes the house look bigger. The carpet, is called Adobe.

Living Room

Oh, and while professionals lay the carpet, my husband and son laid the kitchen and hallway lenolium. I think he did a beautiful job!
Let's go down the hallway to the rest of the house. First, take a look at the lighting fixtures ...
hallway lights


The bathroom is there at the end of the hallway, no pictures though. Not sure why. Maybe at the key ceremony.

Take a left here, and you see my utility room and side door. They call it a 'mudroom' and 'mudroom door'. It's one of my favorite features about the house!!
My laundry area has been IN my kitchen for the last 17 years, the 5 years before that, it was in a laundromat! UGH!!! I can't wait to have it out of the kitchen.
The door to the left, is the hot water heater and the doors to the right is the utility closet.

Back to the main hallway and to the bedrooms,
Samuel's Bedroom

This one is Samuel's, but they all are similar, the master is a bit bigger and has a ceiling fan.
Let's take our coffee to the porch and we can enjoy the view oh, and you can see the pretty flowers that they planted for us.
My flower beds, Pink Knockout Roses

These are the pink Knockout Roses.

I do hope you enjoyed the tour. Come again!
