Our New Home

So here is a tour of our new home prior to us moving anything in.  It's really a blank slate for us to do almost whatever we want to it, even though its a rental. So that's really exciting for us!

This is the view from the street. Some of our first thoughts are painting the trim a good contrasting color and repainting the door. We will also probably cut back that rosemary and plant something with a bit more color.

This is the living room as you come in through the front door. That is a fully functioning, although dirty, wood burning fire place!  Hooray!

As you walk through the living room you make a left turn into this other area that we will probably use for crafting and office space.  To the left is our bedroom and to the right is the kitchen.

This is our bedroom, there is no door... So that is something we will be looking to remedy.  We may just hang a rod with a curtain though. The light fixture in there is pretty ugly and cracked and the ceiling is bright white.  More projects...

Here is the kitchen.  The floor was recently redone and the counter and cabinets in the bottom right of this picture are new. The stove is unfortunately electric but that's okay. The cabinet and counter space is pretty limited but I think it will work out alright. To the right is the bathroom and behind the camera is the laundry room.

Here is the bathroom. It is small. There is a large closet to the left and then the rest of the bathroom goes to the right and boy is it a tight fit. Also notice the lack of a mirror.  That will need to be fixed... We are also thinking about building some sort of counter around the sink.

Here is the laundry room. Its pretty good sized, so we will probably use it for some kind of storage. That door goes out to the back yard.  We'll get to that later...

And last, here is the view from the kitchen looking through the living room to the lovely picture windows in the front of the house.

  1. hi there,

    I saw your question on Apartment Therapy about resolving mold issues in the bathroom. Did you have any luck with that? I'm about to buy a place with mold in one of the bathrooms and I will need to address it. Any tips you might have would be appreciated.

    you can email me directly at if you'd like.
