Inside of the house...


Here are a couple photos of the inside of the house...now, be advised these were taken almost three years ago, to show the house when they originally decided to put it on the market. These are the photos that helped us decide to come out here and look at it. This is the living room, taken from the foyer. To the left are the bedrooms, laundry room, and stairs to the basement. The two doors beside the fireplace have never been used..we would like to build a sunroom/firepatio outside of those doors. ONE DAY....





This is the kitchen, taken from the standpoint of the plants, in the corner, (above photo) Ok, you all know me, its baby blue, and white washed...with.. stutter stutter...old linolium...
besides the difference in decorating taste..this kitchen absolutly ROCKS!! It has in induction stove, which is amazing to cook on..lots and lots of cabinet space..a breakfast nook, which i have always wanted.
Now, you know I love color...I am thinking...RED...black...and butternut..go on..you can picture it...
the view of the living room from the opposite side..double doors are my office..Larrys office is bigger, but downstairs. Suits us both well..you know..the 24 hour a day thing, we can actually miss each other..and be excited to see one another again. It is a difficult house to get a picture in your head, maybe I will scan the floorplan..then all my lovely visual friends will really get it..and perhaps help with decorating suggestions? (those walls..are blue by the way) so is the carpet.
This is the 12x12 jacuzzi room, off of the master bedroom...we are putting a treadclimber in here, and a total gym..(love that thing lots more than i thought i would) and i think i will put the rubber gym tiles down. The floor is very slippery now...not suited for really working out. I will add new photos soon, of what we are doing to the house. You all know how much I love color..so I know it will look very different. We are limited for now, as it took most of what we had to get out here..we kept just a couple pieces of furniture..
The intention was to start over..we may even revise history and change our anniversary to April 21st 1980. (it saves on the story...smile)
More photos to follow..all comments appreciated...

OH, and once the prior owner decided to sell, she decided not to do ANYTHING to the house, but bare living essentials. Cleaning, and minor repairs..have been numerous, to say the least..
