The new house

Since I posted pictures of our current house, I thought I would post pictures of our new house.  Remember - this is how the house looks now - with the other people's stuff.  But we love it, so I wanted to share.  Be warned - there are a lot of pictures.  This is at the request of my mother!

Here is the outside of the house:
 Front - the garage is open
 The side entrance door:
 Top of the garage.  Has a weather vane:
 Our 4th garage - which is completely finished so we are going to use it more as a rec room:
 Front of house from a different angle.  Yes - the front yard needs some help - they have too much going on:
 Side of house - this is where the screened in porch is.  Mat and I have a future plan to make this a four season room:
 3 car garage.  This is also finished - this guy didn't mess around!  And the ceilings are really high:
 Inside the garage:
 View of the back porch and back of house:
 Back of house:
 Back of house from further back in the yard.  Again - the yard needs some TLC.  I have many plans:

Office:   I love the windows
 Another view of the office - it has a lot of windows:
 Our living room.  We are still thinking about what we will do with this room:  It has a beautiful fire place.
 Front door and hallway:
 view down the hall and of the stairs to the second floor:
 View down the hallway.  I love all the crown moldings:
 Family room.  This room also has a fire place and is off the kitchen.  It is a bit small, but it is cozy:
 Family room:  This fire place is so amazing:
 Dining room.  Again - I love the window and crown molding:
 view down to the basement.  The basement isn't finished, but huge.  I didn't take pictures:
 Screened in porch.  It runs the length of the side of the house.  It has two doors that exit the house onto the porch:

 More screened in porch.  That is the back of the fireplace in the living room:

 Mud room and entrance to the garage:

 Fireplace - the side that faces the kitchen.  I love that it is double sided:
 Kitchen (part of it).  Cherry cabinets are really pretty:
 Rest of kitchen.  I think I am going to change the wall color.  It is an eat in kitchen:
 Downstairs half bathroom.  You can't tell in this picture, but the wall color is a pretty slate color:

Stairs that lead upstairs (duh).  I love the runner.  It is in really good shape:

 Closet in Cainan's room.  It is really deep:

 This is Finley's room.  She won't have two beds, but it is a nice big room:
 Finley would like her room to be pink, so we will have to change this one:
 This room has a ton of windows:
 Finley's room:
 Finley's room:

 Master bedroom.  I love all the windows:

stairs up to the playroom.  This is another section of the house - off the downstairs.  It was a nice surprise to find.  Since the basement isn't finished, we can use this room until it is:
 Stairs to playroom.  They use it as an office.
 Okay - so after seeing this completely immaculate house, you are going to laugh at this room!
 Apparently, he doesn't throw any papers away.  I will be anxious to show you this room again when we fix it up:
 the floors under the carpet are wood, so we will be taking the carpet up:
 So that is the tour of the house!  I hope you are still awake.  Once we move in and start to make changes, I will share that with you.  But that won't be for awhile.
