This house search I was a little more picky
My house wish list went something like this
LARGE LIVING SPACE
ROOM TO GROW (I am tired of moving)
I didn’t care about much else, but these things were really really important to me.
I love the LOCATION. I learned from my other house, if you don’t love your location you will never love your house. It has been so nice to be close to family, my daughters love to see their cousins, grandparents, aunts and uncles!
We did take on quite the project with this house, but it fit everything on my wish list and it was within our budget. I knew I could fix the cosmetic things, I was willing to do that before I gave up my wish list!
Our first complete project was our master bath! (post here)
Just after we completed it we broke the shower, and yes a year later it is still broken! My favorite part of this bathroom is my vanity! It even has slow close drawers, I have never had that kind of luxury before!!
The previous owners added this kitchen on, when I walked in and saw all the space I was in love. Cosmetically it wasn’t necessarily what I wanted, but I didn’t have to tear down any walls!! HUGE PLUS
I love my oldest daughters room! It is a smaller room but lightening the walls and furniture helps to open up the room and make it feel bigger! Full Post here
When we first bought this house I thought I would love having the laundry room right off the garage. I don’t hate it however it is a hallway from the family room to the garage so I have to keep it clean. (I really am not good at staying up on Laundry) We created this built in storage to help keep it clean and useable! So far it has really helped keep it clean. Full post here
I love my dining area. It is nice to be able to have a larger table to accommodate visitors for meals and of course craft on. We seem to get a lot of those around dinner time, mainly brothers! Full Post here
I have enjoyed remodeling our house. Many people ask “would you remodel another house?” to that I would say YES!! However, I would NEVER EVER EVER do another yard like this! I don’t think we really understood what we were getting ourselves into. we have .25 of an acre and it was ALL covered in either gravel or flagstone. To haul it all out, and get all the plants out was A LOT of work!! I still have random things popping up! But I am super happy with the way it turned out! Full post here
This last week we started the basement!! Devin is claiming it was his man cave, we will see!
I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
