Home sweet home

Welcome to the grand tour of our new residence.  This is our living room/kitchen.  I'm not especially fond of the fact that anybody who comes to the door can see my messy kitchen, but oh well. 

New flooring and granite counter tops in the kitchen.  The teal wallpaper at the top doesn't really go, but oh well.  Kitchen window still needs some work.

View from kitchen.  We have just about every color of wood that there is in our kitchen and living room.  Once again, oh well.

view from the front door. New carpet.

Included in this picture is the digital piano that Steve got for a graduation present.  Kiera can already play twinkle twinkle.

New sink  toilet and granite countertops in our puke green bathroom

Kiera and Lydia's room.  Someday we'll buy a bed for Kiera...

Playroom downstairs. and a an attached small dark bedroom.  New carpet to come later.

Master bedroom.  Love our new fans in every bedroom

the stairs down to the playroom.  Considering painting the panneling to lighten it up.

Forgot to take a picutre of the front of the house.  Our landlord recently pulled up our sidewalk and pulled out a huge row of bushes so we've got some gravel for a path to our door and we've got big holes where bushes were.  Oh, and we have ZERO trees (like our last house).  All of the other houses on our street have HUGE trees.  I'm so jelous!
Overall, a very good house and a great place to  live.  Steve did a great job finding it.

It's so cute! I'm happy for you guys. I totally recommend painting the wood paneling, I'm so happy we did in our house!!

It is nice! Good finding Job Stevo! I am glad you are not living in the ghetto of most of those rentals! I would recommend getting the landlords permision before painting the paneling, or you may not get your deposit back no matter how clean it is.

Actually, I was thinking that the kitchen cupboards went great with your table and spice rack...and I have seen picts of the parade of homes shows, and multiwood colors in one room is "in"
