Views from the new!

Well I mentioned back before Christmas our exciting news,
we bought another house!


It was a battle from the time we put in our first offer, even up to the last minute of the closing.
But the papers got signed, and it is ours!
(The pipeliner came home, grabbed his bags and left for a month out of town)

We decided to add our own touches to the place before anything was moved in.

The first thing to go was the laminate flooring.
It took me a couple of days to rip it all out but its out!
The new hardwood floors will be installed on the 20th of this month.

Living room

I can't wait to have a warm, crackling fire!
Love fireplaces!

The windows needed restained and sealed.

Great view of our 5 acres

It has a spacious sunroom. I can already picture myself sitting out here enjoying my morning coffee.

Fireplace in the dining room.

The countertops in the kitchen were a dark red. 
They had to go!

Granite ones coming soon!

The painters have been there all last week. 
I think they should finish up sometime this week.
We ran into an issue with the paint.
Many of the cans had been froze prior to delivery.

Not quite sure what we will do with the master bath yet.

Red was a dominate color in this house!

I can hardly wait to get everything done and moved in!
Especially with our water issue at the farmhouse or should I say no water!
I am thankful that we have this place so I can run over in the morning and take a shower.
The new place is only about 2 miles from the farmhouse!

I am hoping to be all moved in by February 1st.
Just in time for the pipeliner to be home!

I am glad he made it home for those few days when the snowstorm hit!

I took this picture one night as I was closing the garage door and heading back to the farm.


Yep, with view like that, I know it will make a wonderful home!

Liz

  6. Love the fireplace and windows. Keep us updated with more pictures. I like red - but more of a barn red.

    1. Thanks Staci! It is such an exciting time for us. Boy does it sure help that its close to the other place!

  15. What an exciting project! Whenever I've moved home, all finances have been tied up in the move so we've had very little money spare to redecorate immediately. The thought of getting everything perfect before moving in must be lovely!
