AW: Pics of the House FI & I just bought

So I promised pics or it didn't happen.  Finally got the keys last night and so FI, FMIL, FI's younger brother, Maus and I went over there after we got the keys so that FMIL can see the house.  She was so excited to go and see our future home.  FI was also excited because he wanted to start measuring and planning his remodeling projects.  So I was able to snap some pics with my camera phone so mind the blurry pics, I didn't get a chance to grab the real camera.  But once the remodel starts I will take better before and after pics.

FI and I think of this place as a blank slate since we are going to tear a lot of it out and re-do the rooms in the floor plan and style we like.  Without further ado here they are!


Arriving at the house with FI and the Maus


The entry way, will need to change out the flooring


Looking at the living room from the entry way


Dining room to the right of entryway, the linoleum has to GO!


Living room from the back sliding glass door to the backyard.


From the same place but looking to the left towards the kitchen, FI and I plan to extend the kitchen by moving the walls closer to the glass door.


Small Kitchen that's my FMIL


Kitchen from the dining room view, I'm ripping all that out!


Looking into the master bedroom, the master bath is just inside the double doors and to the left.


180 degree turn, directly across from the master bedroom is the two other bedrooms, one will be a guest room and one is an office.


Maus exploring the backyard, so much room for her to run around.


Finally carrying my blushing groom across the threshold.



To celebrate afterwards we went and got BBQ, and FMIL ordered a bottle of champagne.  Kind of awkward when the server popped he bottle open and everyone stared at us.  BBQ and Bubbly, I could only have a sip or two, since I have no tolerance for alcohol.  Hope you ladies enjoyed it, I'll post up after pictures of rooms as we finish them.  Oh the amount of work FI and I have ahead of ourselves.

    Amazing! Please post more before and afters of the reno! I'm totally jealous, we had to postpone our home search because our apartment wouldn't do a short enough lease term with us :( Hopefully this time next year I will be in our new house though!!!


    Congrats again!

    Wood flooring in all if the house except carpet in the bedrooms and tile in the bathrooms.  We are discussing different paint choices for each room.  I love COLOR!


    Ladies Maus has grown, what once was a little puppy can now reach the edges of the kitchen counters when she is on her hind legs.  I also realize that she can lick me in the face in the mornings if I don't get out of bed fast enough for her. 

    She's wearing her car harness.


    I must annoy her so much.

    Love it!!  And how fun that you get to do all those projects!  It would scare me to have all that work to do but I'm sure you'll make it amazing!!  Also, I really like that pic of you carrying FI over the threshold - too funny!!

    Oh, and your furbaby Maus is simply ADORABLE!!!  She will love that backyard and make it all hers (with maybe a little room for you guys :-)
