This is the view towards the living room and front door from the dining room. Our street is nice and quiet! I am hoping to put up some coat hooks and maybe a little storage bench along the wall behind the front door to act as a faux mud-room. (Somewhere to take shoes on and off and store them -- also a place for the kids to put their backpacks when they go to school!)
The house has a really nice backyard that we intend to plant a garden in next spring, and possibly put up a shed on the cement slab in the back corner. Danior has said that one of the things he is really looking forward to about buying this home is that he now has an excuse to buy all the power tools he has always wanted!
This is a view of the kitchen. The right side has a stove top on the counter and a wall oven. The left has two pantry cabinets. It is easily triple the size of our current kitchen and has twice the cabinet space (if not more). I love that the sink has a window behind it so I can look out into the backyard! Oh... and do you see that blank appliance next to the sink?!?! Yah.... that's a dishwasher!!!! It even works!! Maybe my dishpan hands will finally get a break!
