As promised, however, here are some pics of our soon-to-be home sweet home. I'm calling them "before" shots, since we have a list a mile long of improvements we want to make:
Does anyone know the technical term for this thing? Looks like something that will require climbing on rooftops someday.
"Hey, let's put granite in, but that means we have no budget for a backsplash. Maybe The Hometeam won't notice..."
The third bay window in the dining room just off the kitchen. This one looks out onto the...ready for this...BACKYARD! (Which I have no pics of...sorry.)
Formal dining room. But we're not calling it that because we're not formal (suggestions for other names welcome).
With a window like this in the office, I'm sure to write some inspired blog posts for once. Right now I'd settle for just writing.
Boys' room downstairs next to ours. They'll be rooming together until further notice. Or the fighting starts leaving scars.
Storage in garage. I'm very excited about this since we won't have as large a utility room in the new house.
Spot for our second fridge. I still have mine from my single life. Seriously, save a couple hundred and buy one for your garage. Priceless for summer time drinks and frozen treats, stocking bottled water, trays of party food.
Mickey's very intrigued by the mail drop set-up. When he saw this picture he asked "...what happens to the mail when the garage door goes up?" Hmm...
