I am counting down the days until we close on our new house.
Here are a few features I'm looking forward to.
doubling our square footage
open floor plan
main floor laundry
huge living room/great room
having a guest bedroom
creating an office space
spacious basement for the kids to go crazy
Now can you understand why I'm counting down?
I know the house doesn't have the "wow" factor from the street. But I kind-of like that it's so unassuming and my hope is that you'll be wow'd when you come in the door. Eventually we'll change the exterior but it's low on my list.
I gave you a tour of the main level earlier this week and today I thought I'd share the lower level!
No, this is not a telemarketing firm (Emily) but where their three boys did their homework. I'm planning to magically turn this into my office. Do you think it can be done?
To the right of this hallway/office space is an unfinished, decent sized space that I'd like to trick-out as a huge mudroom. I found plenty of inspiration from Sara Richardson's example.
There are not very good photos of the basement, but these are all from the MLS. This is from the far right corner and shows the play area. Yes, there is a random bar in the middle of the room. When we "do the basement" we will fix the ceiling and lighting. Yikes.
This image is from the other side. Can you see the sofa in line with the poles? There is actually a whole TV area in that section that they didn't picture. So there is plenty of room for play dates and parties. Ideally, I'd like to add an office that could also serve as a bedroom. But for now I like that the kids can run around and not ruin anything.
Well friends, that completes the new house home tour. If you need me I'll be counting.. :-)
