Posted on Updated on

So we bought another house.

Turns out a family of 5 doesn’t fit GREAT in 840 sq. feet. I mean we were doing ok and definetly could have survived there (people live in a lot worse conditions #firstworldproblems)

But this opportunity arose and we jumped on it.

Its a 1973 home that was still stuck in 1973.  I’m talking everything original. EVERYTHING. Carpet. check. Light Fixtures. check. Bathroom Planter. Check.

This is as you walk in the front door.  I love some good before photos, don’t you?!? Can’t wait to make progress and show ya’ll. This will be a our living space and dining room.

This is my first time EVER living in a two story house. Its amazing. To be able to send the kiddos upstairs and have some more breathing room. AMAZING.

This will be our home-school space.  That’s right, a WHOLE room for school. 🙂  With windows and sliding glass doors that overlook the backyard so the littles can play. Dreamy.

More of the school room right off the kitchen.  There is also a under the stair closet that I want to turn into a play closet (aka. toy storage)

The kitchen needs a lot of help.  I have big plans. BIG plans.

This is the master. Its HUGE. Which is nice since Ronnie’s office goes in here as well. It a real grown up room.

The master bathroom is connected by this partition area.

The bathroom has a step up and double doors to make a grand entrance. Also completely bare windows so you can give the neighbors a show.  Then there is the planter, which is a real puzzle in itself.  We are going to completely GUT the bathroom and start over.  As soon as we are finished unpacking. I’m starting to LOATHE cardboard boxes, there are unending.          140023397_16_0 140023397_17_0

My Freddie boy has his own room now! Its so fun and he sleeps AWESOME since he doesn’t have his sisters climbing into his crib anymore. Imagine that!!

The girls room is HUGE and perfect for them. It has the most adorable picturesque window overlooking our street and they have LOVED having a “GIRLS ONLY” room.

The kids bath needs some love too, but it works so that’s an improvement over the master.  It is in line on the to-do list.

The backyard is a gem.  The covered patio is perfect for playing outdoors and eating meals with a cool summer breeze.  We have already torn out those planters on the patio and hung swings for the kids.  We anticipate spending a LOT of time out there this year.

 

I can’t wait to post progress! Its coming soon. 🙂

 

Blessings,

Mollie
