Our House....is a very very very fine house...

Well this post took me over an hour. Romney is at work and I have no idea how to down load pictures onto the computer. But, I did it. I wasnt willing to wait for him until tomorrow morning. Literally it took me an hour to figure out this downloading the chip thing. However here are new house pictures that were requested ( mostly by my sister and sisters in law ). Last night Romney patched up all the holes in the wall. He replaced a toilet seat cover and worked on ripping the cubboard out. Im working on cleaning the upstairs right now. Lucky me.

Stairs. I just love the three tone paint on the wall. Check out all the colors of paint on each section. Now the chandlier is the prize. But upstairs to the right is the master bedroom and to the left is the linen cubboards and bathroom and 3 additional bedrooms.



Kitchen. She is coming along. The cubboards that are hanging right in front of this picture are coming out- to open up the area.



Family room. This is the room where the leak WAS (no more leak) coming down on. This was taken from the eating nook/kitchen. We can not wait to fix up the fireplace and put up a mantel



Living room. The doggydoor is on the right side of the wall.



Dinning room. This is connected to the living room and to the right is the kitchen. Notice the awesome lighting. And get close to see our amazing backyard....yes its an above ground pool and tree house and shed all klumped together. (pool is going, shed and tree house are staying)




Here is our doggy door. I wasnt kidding...




Yes it is crazy. But all an easy fix. WE love it. We cannot wait for all the changes to happen. It is wierd to be a homeowner. Doesnt feel real at all. But it is ours and I cant wait to move in...someday and call it home!

It will feel real when you make that first payment (smile). I think you guys scored a great house. I love hearing all your fun ideas to fix it and make it yours. It’s great that Romney is so handy. We want to come over and see it.

Erin, congratulations on your new house! Now comes the fun part of being a homeowner....all the repairs! You'll love it though when they are all done and it feels like your own.

I can't wait to come to your first party there so we can all see it in person! It looks like it's coming along-I bet you can't wait till it's all finished. P.S. I almost picked your template background and then had to change it when I saw yours! I guess great minds think alike.

Cool house you have here. A very cool house indeed. Do you really have to get rid of the doggy door?

How exciting Erin!!! That is so much fun. I bet you are having a blast thinking of how you want to make it yours!! I realized looking at the pictures that it is the same model as the Stubb's home :)

Good job on learning how to "do it yourself" with the photo uploading (I'm impressed!:) and with the remodeling. That house is HUGE! What a fun time in your life to use your creativity on where you and Romney will live...there's no place like home! Good idea on removing the pool & especially the cupboards to open the place up a bit.

I think it is going to be so nice when you guys are all done. It looks like a great floor plan. Congratulations again and thanks for the comment!

WOW!!! How fun for you guys! I was expecting something that needed LOTS of fixin'--but it looks like it doesn't really need much. Maybe patching up the doggy-door-wall and new paint. It looks great! Can't wait to visit and stay up and play games. Congrats!! We love you!
