We have been in the new place now for about three months, and have done a lot in that amount of time. The house was nice when we moved in, but we have definately added our own touch to it, and it feels like OUR home now.
We didn't do much to the front yet (maybe in the spring), but we put in some sod on a patch, and planted some flowers. Eventually we would like to take care of that pine tree, and plant some nicer trees.
The backyard was nice, but had lots of pine trees and TONS of rock. We knew we wanted to take out the pine trees because they were killing the existing grass, and we took out some flower beds. I would rather mow then weed. This is after we took out 4 big pine trees, and the flower beds, but before the sod.
The after shot with the new sod in place. There is still a lot that we would like to do, but for now we are loving the new grass and no pine tree back yard.
The front room with new paint and carpet. This room feels lighter with the new color. As much as I try to keep this room toy free, it's one of the kids favorite rooms to play.
Finn's room was the only room we left the brown color. It seemed like a good color for a boys room. I may still paint it, but for now it will stay. Finn loves having a place he can go without Meg in his business.The master is smaller then our condo, especially with our huge bed, but it has it's own bathroom and that pretty much makes up for that.
The girls room
Our basement has taken a lot of work too with ripping out nasty carpet, and sealing the concrete, but it's nice to have all the extra space. This is the storage/laundry room (notice all those lovely peaches). It's still not really organized, but it will come a long as I get to it.
The undecorated bathroom in the basement
The family room in the basement is still unfinished. That will be a big project that we will have to get around to in the years to come, but we sure do love our little place. We've put a lot of work into making it our own and appreciate all of my family who have helped with all of our projects. We couldn't have done it without you!
