It’s starting to look like a house

September 4, 2008

Here is the living room. I just got the lamp behind the couch and the mirror over the fireplace. I am waiting for bronze silk drapes to arrive, hopefully they will help the lamp, it isn’t doing much for me right now.

Should I hang the big red and yellow orchid painting behind the sofa?

I really need to figure out what to do with the space over the buffet. Mutiple little paintings? Some other kind of art?

My Bedroom

September 4, 2008

Here is my bedroom. Once the attic finished, this will be the guest room.

The bathroom is a million times better than the ‘before’ picture. Snaps to Barbie for painting it.

Guest Bedroom

September 4, 2008

This is the guest bedroom/room of random stuff (ignore the pile of paintings on the bed, I can’t decide where to hang them). It used to be dark red, but the new paint really makes the room look bigger. It will be an office once the attic is finished.

They accepted my offer!

My house, outside and the kitchen

March 29, 2008

Here is the house that I am putting an offer on. The front has new landscaping and new sidewalks, driveway and patio. You can see the back of the house has a 1 car garage that is attached.
The second 2 photos are of the kitchen. It has a new slate floor and a newer fridge and range, but older cabinets and counters. And no dishwasher! I would like to see if it is possible to extend the eating nook off to the right side so that the back door doesn’t open into the basement door. And also that would open up the back of the house to the patio.

My house, the living room and dining room

March 29, 2008

The first 2 photos are a view from the dining room looking towards the front of the house. The second 2 photos are standing in the living room looking into the dining room. In the 3rd photo, you can see into the kitchen, in the 4th, you can see into the hallway leading to the bathoom and the 2 bedrooms.

My house, the bedrooms and bathroom

March 29, 2008

The first 2 photos are of the bathroom on the 1st floor. As you can see, it has retro yellow-beige tile, but it is in pretty good condition. The vanity is a cheap piece of crap, but it can be replaced with something that fits the room better and is a little wider.

The second 2 photos are the bedrooms on the 1st floor. They are a good size, with decent (relatively speaking) closets. They would work to live in while the upstairs is being renovated and then become a guest room and an office or TV room.

My house, upstairs

March 29, 2008

Here is the upstairs. Scott and Jane are standing in the completely unfinished part. Through the door, you can see the ‘3rd bedroom’. The cedar lined closet (2nd photo) is in the unfinished part of the attic. The last photo is the view of the closet from inside the bedroom.
