A little House Tour.

This weekend we were back at the new house - this time, we were here for the inspection. We almost passed scott-free too! The only thing that must be addressed before we move in is a temporary support post - it should be permanent. Hopefully we'll be able to get the current owners to cover that, or even split the cost. The electrical needs some grounds put in, and will eventually need updating. The plumbing will also need to be upgraded down the line, but neither of those are immediate things. Awesomely enough, the inspector (from Holmes Inspection,who we were totally impressed with!) said this was one of the best maintained homes from 1947 that he has ever seen. *fist pump*


Let's share some photos of the lovely home we're going to move into in less than 2 months!

The front of the house

The living room - look at that huge front window! That corner with the curio cabinet? We're planning on a book case and bench - kind of a drop zone for things. 

The other side of the living room. The room is painted an awkward peach color - but we're looking to switch the room to a light gray with a white fireplace. 

Super awesome staircase. 

Dining room! We're thinking of a dark slate blue, with the molding square a bright white. Love the chandelier already though! 

We love this part of the kitchen. One day we'll add a back splash and nicer countertops. 

This area of the kitchen? Yikes. We'd love to move the stove to the right (and add a vent hood), and create a breakfast bar under the windows (eventually). For now, we'll buy a few fruit baskets to hang between the windows, an island on wheels for under the windows, and a new fridge (the current one doesn't stay)

The main floor office (love the wood wall, the wallpaper not so much)

Main floor bedroom.

The master bedroom. 

The nursery. 

The 3rd bedroom upstairs (this is where the parents will stay when they visit)

 We have a partially finished basement! Sean has claimed this as his man cave (unless a friend of ours moves in for a year or two). 

Our gorgeous covered, screened in porch. We'll need to rip up the brick and relay it eventually. But again, that an eventually project. 

Some of the things we're not showing in these? Our super tiny bathrooms (including one that's completely blue. No joke. At least we have 3!). The unfinished half of the basement which has the laundry in it. Our tiny closets. The backyard, which includes a veggie garden. The garage and carport (we have both!). All in all, we're smitten. We love that it has just enough work that needs to be done. We love that it's livable. We're excited to make this place our own, that's for sure.

I saw that molding in the photo and immediately pictured a photo gallery there. Again, I am SO EXCITED for you guys!

Oh. My. GOSH! It's BEAUTIFUL! And yes, very well maintained! Oh my goodness, I can't wait to see what you guys are going to do with that place!
