Ok, you asked for it. Here’s the house we’re renting now. These photos are from this summer yet and some of the furniture has changed (surprise!) but you can get the idea of what we’re working with.
First – this house is amazing, that should be said. We have more room, kids have their own bedrooms, there’s a basement and a back yard. We’re super happy here.
Problems: the kitchen is so very small. Actual wall space in the house is less than we had in our old apartment (but bonus, we have french doors with amazing glass). There are arches every where and our furniture fits – but not much else.
So – now that we’ve got that covered you get to order me around. Where do I start?
From the front door we have this awesome porch, where we read and the kids color and I work every day from the yellow desk.
From the porch you lead right into the living room, or our bedroom:
And the living room flows right to the dining room and there’s yet another door to our bedroom.
Our bedroom needs help, yes I know.
And the bathroom is connected to the bedroom but also a walkthrough to the kitchen.
Which apparently I’m against photographing? I don’t have any photos of the kitchen. The dining room leads to the stairs and has this awesome window seat.
At the top of the stairs is a landing, a small bathroom and then both kids’ rooms.
Our sons room:
Our daughters kingdom:
Yes, that is her closet. All hers.
And the basement is the basement. The couch from the living room in the photos above is now downstairs along with a few other things from storage – it’s the play room and has a laundry space, Aaron’s closet and a couple misc rooms for storage.
There you have it! Now. What should I do?
