Our Naked House

{When we left the title company after closing on Friday, I looked at John and said "We're home owners! er...um...home debtors...we're HOME DEBTORS!!! YAY!!!"}
This is our brand new HOUSE! We closed on it last Friday, I am beyond myself with excitement! I've never had a place that I could really decorate and furnish just the way I want, Ahhhh, So excited. Like, I wake up at all hours of the night with ideas and things for the new house. true story. Anyway, here's the tour!
It is a townhouse. It is also 3100 square feet. 4 bedrooms, 3 bath, unfinished basement with another bedroom and bath for the future. Town-homes aren't usually this large, we just really lucked out. And it is brand new, never been lived in! YAY!

Didn't get a pic of the entryway, but there's a nice entryway, then an arched doorway into the family room

Okay, now upstairs...

This is where Gladys will live :)

There's another bedroom that I didn't take a picture of, but it's bigger than the craft room, it's a good sized bedroom, for baby number 2 (nope not pregnant) and/or guest room.

One last peek...
So that's our naked house, all ready for us to move in!
I am SO excited to get to work turning this place into our dream home! Any suggestions for new home owners?


  1. Oh my goodness you are kidding me?!?! It's HUGE and SO GORGEOUS!!!! I love the bathrooms, the closets, the CRAFT ROOM (which I know you will get tons of use out of), the kitchen...all of it! I'm freaking out, it's amazing! CONGRATULATIONS!!!

    My one suggestion is to get rid of that pigeon.
