When we bought this house, as I said, it had everything on my check list but I didn't think it was my dream home - now that we are in - I am absolutely in love with this house and SO SO thankful that God has once again blessed our family abundantly above what we could ever think or imagine!! I've had my friend and neighbor from our other house, Rachelle over. She is a horticulturist and has come up with an amazing plan for our back yard. We've had the contractor over to give us quotes on a covered deck for the front and some other small jobs we need done and I've had the decorator here to help me pick out some paint colors! I'm so excited to get started but we do have to pace ourselves - not to mention that this house is substantially larger than our last one so we dont' have nearly enough furniture - giggle. Our house is on the nicest street in Kindersley (IMHO). It is across the street from the river and walking path and we have green space across from us with a ball diamond and 2 playgrounds not far away!
Okay, here we go:
The front exterior: (don't love the exterior at all - there are french doors out to the front yard but no deck - (that's where the covered deck comes in).
This monstrosity is what you see as soon as you walk in the front door. It is a fire place with no chimney - someone had big plans at one time but it completely closes off the whole main floor so it will be coming out!
And with our table: If you have ever been to our home you know that we have a substantial sized table. It is heavy and solid and there was barely enough room to walk around it in our other house - you can see this room dwarfs the table - it looks so small now ;0) I love all the space!!
The master bedroom
Our ensuite - ya gotta love the burgandy and brass - hmmm, wonder what decade this house was built - LOL! With that being said - my burgandy tub is heavenly to have a bubble bath in. I absolutely adore it and also is phenomenal condition so again, hoping to disquise the '80s theme with some great paint colors.
On to the basement: This is our guest bath
not very exciting at all...
This is just outside the bathroom and there is a giant black board painted on the wall. This entire basement was a kids play area when the previous owners were here and we are now containing that space :0). This will be our new workout area with the treadmill and some weights.
This space is opporsite the chalk board wall and will be our new rec room where we'll watch movies with the kids and Andy will play video games here - Alot I'm sure - LOL!
The is the room above with the open door. Right now it is Isaiah's room but with him going away, it may be turned into a guest room - much to his chagrin. If anyone can think of an amazing way to decorate a guest room so that it also functions for a young adult male - PLEASE email me!!
