Because who doesn’t love a good house tour? The hubs and I bought our very first home in October of 2013. Here is what we’re starting with – click on the layout photos for a bigger version. Updates to come as we get settled in and I start some projects!
Street view of our house. A raised rambler, this layout is pretty standard for our area.
Entryway looking into the upstairs living space, dining room (on left) and kitchen (doorway on right)
Upstairs living space
Dining Room (for now… muah-hah-ah-ah)
Kitchen – I promise, this looks way nicer than it is. The cabinets are weirdly high (they start at my eye level) and the layout leaves much to be desired.
Right side of the kitchen (door looks into our main hallway). The green paint is even worse in person.
Main floor bathroom. The tiling is crooked (and 90’s tan/beige) and you can see through spots of the blue paint that it was also painted beige before, but it’ll work for now.
Walk-in closet and half bath on the other side of the master bathroom (aaah, those 70’s vanities in the bedroom!)
Because who doesn’t love a sink and carpeting in their bedroom?
Main living area in the basement – we have a fireplace! And a [really crooked] mantel 🙂
Other side of the basement living room, with doors to the backyard. Note the blue paint. It’s almost neon in person. Like sky blue on acid.
Basement full bath, complete with grey-ish blue and red paint. Yikes. This one’s gonna need some primer to cover.
My home office 🙂 The former owners left me lots of uneven, unsanded spackle and some extra divots in the drywall, but I can’t wait to clean this space up!
The hubs’ office and “man-cave.” Really dark grey-blue again, and the wal just out of frame on the right is actually blood red. More primer!
The other side of the hubs’ man cave
Laundry/utility room. Not fully drywalled, so I’m not sure what we’ll do with this.
Other side of the laundry/utility room
We have an awesome backyard with a fire pit, but there are a few areas that need work, and I want to put in raised garden beds in the spring.
Our covered porch is unfortunately at the end of its life and will have to come down soon.
As least this winter we’ll be able to enjoy the lovely fake-grass carpet…
