Tour My House

My House - 1987 Ranch
1700 sf :: 3 bedroom :: 2 bath

I would like to say up front that everything is still a work in progress.  Currently the progress is very slow, since I don't have the same disposable income as I did a year ago, but I'm working on it.

Living Room
note all of the white swatches?  what do you think?

Guest Room/Future Nursery
the green is not my favorite, it was existing.  i'm waiting for baby #2 to repaint it.

Hall Bath
it's an odd little bathroom in the center of the house so it has no windows

Master Bedroom

Master Bath
this bathroom has so many problems and the only way to fix it is to gut everything and start over.  one day my dream will come true.

Dining Room
when you walk into the kitchen from the living room this is to the right

I fell in love with this house mainly because of it's location.  It's in an older, quiet neighborhood in town.  Claire's future primary school is right around the corner (seriously, it's a 2 minute walk).  It backs up to a pond and on the other side is a wooded area that surrounds the school so no backyard neighbors.  We have an in-ground saltwater pool, which rocks.  But my favorite part is that it is a blank slate.  It has so much potential.  Since we plan on being here for a good while I can take my time and  make it just the way I want it.

  1. What a great home- you have done a great job! I love the stripes on the focal wall in the master. And I love the rug in the main living area! It is coming along beautifully. :)

  2. It's lovely and I'm excited to watch the progression I'm sure is coming. I can't get over how perfectly organized you are! I need you to come to my house and do that for me...

  3. Ok, so apparently it has been far too long since I've been in your home because everything looks so different! I love the pop of yellow in the living room from the blanket that is laying over the chair and I'm loving the flowers beside the computer area. I'm curious as to what you are going to do with the doors in the living room(as far as color)once you have the walls all white...can't wait to hear.

  4. love a house tour and yours is wonderful!

  5. SO fun to see it all! You've done great work!!

  6. Thanks for the tour! I love walking through houses, even if it's online ;-) I LOVE your dining room. I think it might be my favorite dining room of all my friend's dining rooms ;-)
