New House Tour

I can see that my last post was right before we moved into our new house and this is the first chance I have gotten to post some images. I need to show the house in a few posts as there are a lot of images and I don't want to overwhelm you! Exterior pictures will be forthcoming because I need to wait until there isn't 2+ feet of snow on the ground. All that snow makes our new house look really short for some reason.

Our house was originally built in the 1920's but the previous owners built a sizeable addition about 15 years ago.

Foyer at side entrance
We have two front doors.  Isn't that confusing?  We use the side- front door as our main point of greeting and it's adjacent to our garage.  The foyer is quite large and the only room to be wallpapered.  Changes will occur in this room as the wall paper comes down.

Closet off of garage
 A 3/4 bath is located right off the foyer and has a shower to make chlorine removal from our pool quick and easy.  We have a pool!

Living Room
The living room is a monster of a room with a gas fireplace and a decent expanse of windows.  We painted most of the room a light gray and an accent wall and fireplace two tones of blue.

Fireplace needs a bit of work.  We are thinking about a glass or marble tile to dress it up a bit.

A sunroom/conservatory/playroom is off of the bathroom and living room.  It has a french door to the back deck and pool.

This is a photo from the  living room and I like to think of it as a "choose your own adventure" photo.  You can take stairs up, a hall to the breakfast room, or walk into the dining room.

Dining Room
The dining room is going to be transformed into a music room in the near future as I am having my great-uncles baby grand piano moved in the near future.

Future Dining Room
This is the future dining room off of the kitchen.  I'm going to highlight the kitchen in another post, so you won't see it quite yet here.  We have not painted in this room yet or in the next room which I like to jokingly call the billiards room.

 I like to think that all the random toys in the pictures make the house feel homey and not messy.

Billiards Room
The old living room has our old front door.  It, also, has a wood burning fireplace and a pool table in pieces against the wall.  It's going to be one fancy billiards room when it's done.  The spotlight over our son's picture has a dimmer to it and I like to turn the light on slowly, and dramatically (with angelic noises) to emphasis the photo.  It makes me laugh every time.

Front Door?

Laundry Room
The last room on the first floor is our laundry room.  It used to be a bedroom before the addition was built.  I love it because there is plenty of room and a closet that hides the cat's litter and food.  The size of the room helps a great deal when I have a 2 year old with a  tricycle, dog, and cat "helping" me with the laundry.

Stay tuned for second floor pictures.  Doesn't it look like Logan is really working on the laptop.  He's so advanced for his age.
