We have almost completely settled in. Just in time for our second shipment (stuff we've had in storage for the last year) to be delivered. I wish I could remember what all is in that shipment. I have a feeling it will show up during the time Nick is gone to the pre-command course. Won't that be lovely?
I worked like a crazy lady the first three days we were here. Suddenly, I lost my steam. Right now, we've been in the house around 11 days and I still have something in every room that needs to be finished up. UGH!
Today, Nick is back to work doing his in-processing. I am determined to finish up downstairs. I have a list and I hope I can stick to it!
Enjoy these photos of my empty house. It's a great house and I'm going to love living here..if I can just get finished.
The view from the front door. Dining room on right, living room and sun porch on left.
The living room, facing the front wall (with built-ins)
Better shot of the built-ins and you can see the front door over to the left.
The sun porch which is just on the other side of the fireplace wall. I love this room!
The dining room from the entry hall. You can see the kitchen door on the left.
This is a shot of the kitchen from the dining room. Once you walk in, immediately to the left is a butler's pantry which is just below.
Butler's pantry. Just to the left of the cabinet shown is a floor to ceiling pantry. Love it!
This is a shot of the kitchen looking back toward the dining room door (just to the right of that cabinet and two window wall) I am standing in the other door to the kitchen which comes in off the back door hallway.
Tiny little "bedroom" downstairs. That bathroom through the "bedroom" is the only bathroom downstairs so we will make this room a "sitting" room with Callie's old futon. That way it can be converted to a bedroom for a kid when we have guests that need to take his room.
This is the sleeping porch. Isn't it wonderful?!
