We've been busy!

There is a reason I haven't posted in over a month. Once all the family came and went, we finally buckled down and started on the never ending projects for this house.  Here they all are in no particular order.
Refinishing the dining table. Obviously I have to still redo the chairs too, but that will be another project to add to the list.

Repainting the coffee table that I found on craigslist for $15.

Staining the deck before the rain comes.
Side yard retaining wall before our neighbors reinstall their fence.

The big kahuna! This wall took up the majority of our time and resources, but it was so worth it. Scott did an amazing job and it is beautiful. I love it!

We also found this piano on craiglist for $90 and Easton started taking lessons a few weeks ago. He loves it!

The House

Now that we've lived in our home for two months, I figure that it is now presentable to the world.  Here is the front of the house, with dirt, dirt, and more dirt. If you are thinking about buying a new build, get ready for lots of projects!

Front entry room/living room/computer room

Behind the front room is closet space and a powder room.

Family room and dining room.


The stairway is right at the front door, and essentially splits the upstairs in half. At the top of the stairs, if you turn right, you'll find the laundry room (no more dragging baskets up and down)....

Ginny's room....,

and the boys' room (a.k.a. the lego den).

If you turn left, you find the extra bathroom,.....

the extra, and almost completely empty bedroom,....

and the master bedroom.  Here is the master bath/closet.

and our huge bedroom. This picture only shows about 2/3 of the length of this room.  I don't know how I am going to fill up all the space yet, but I'm sure I'll have fun figuring it out.
