House Tour!!!

Hey Everyone!
We FINALLY closed on our house Wednesday at 2:00, and I must say, we are VERY excited!!!  Right after we closed, I took some pictures of the house to use as our "before" pictures for all of the transformations that will be taking place in the coming months!

How about a little tour, so you can see what we are working with :)?

(So...I've been working on this post for about 3 days, and my computer keeps overheating and passing out, so this is not the whole tour!  Sorry!  Hopefully, I can start working with just a few pictures at a time!!)

The outside is definitely not very exciting.  I have been known to say it is the ugliest house in the neighborhood:)  Not because it's so ugly, but our neighborhood is sooo stinkin' cute!!!

Front Porch.  It's a tad bit lopsided right now, and we don't know exactly what we are going to do with it as far as making it beautiful, but I love that it's so big!  I think some fabulous seating is definitely a necessity!!

Living room

Beautifully wallpapered formal dining....NOT!

We have big plans for this room! :)
Lovely office/future nursery.  One of my FAVORITE rooms in the house!  My mother-in-law and I actually hugged the first time we walked into this room  And that is how I knew, this house was "the one."

Master Bedroom

Master Bathroom.  Imagine all of those walls knocked out (along with the lovely murals)!  I hope we get to do it, as it is in our long term plan, but not necessarily in the 3 month plan:)  Hopefully we have leftover funds, so we can do it!!!  Even if we don't knock the walls out, we are still don't worry!

The island getaway that's in our very own basement!  Don't worry, it is coming down!  This is the wet bar and the dining area in the basement.

Basement Living Area

Jack and Jill basement.  It is connected to two bedrooms and the hall.  Also, each bedroom has it's own vanity area.  How fortunate for our future children!!  :)

One example of a basement bedroom.  I just love all of the light!  It doesn't even feel like a basement!

The Backyard:)
 Like I said, this isn't every angle and room of the house, but it's a nice teaser!  As you can see, there is a lot of work that needs to be done!  We see definite potential in the place, and I hope, that as time goes on, you can see it too!

Have a great day!
