Home tour - the downstairs

Okay okay! After lots of comments begging for a home tour, here it is. Well, here is part of it. The downstairs is pretty much unpacked. There are things that still need to be hung on that walls, but for the most part - it's clean. Thus, you just get a tour of the downstairs for now, k?

Outside of the house, obviously. :-)

Formal Living Room.

View from the stairs. See the pictures in the corner? Those still need to be hung!

Formal dining room, turned Bennett's "play" area. We have chosen not to get a formal dining table quite yet since we have a kitchen dinette area. Maybe once the kids are a little older and we don't have the toys, we'll get a nice table for this space.

Kitchen & eating area. (yep, those are Christmas lights on top the cupboards!)



View into the family room from the kitchen. We're planning on building shelving in the family room and mounting the TV. I'll show you more before/after photos once that project is complete!



Backyard. there is a lot of work to be done in this bad boy. Hopefully we can fill most of it in with grass so that the kiddo's have more room to run freely. Maybe this Spring/Summer we're get around to it!

And that's all for now!The upstairs is still a big fat mess. Boxes around and rooms aren't put together at all, so once it's all situated (could be months!), I'll pop back in with the upstairs tour. K?
