Pics of the new house - becoming a home!

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
OK - this is what we get to wake up to. The view off the deck:



We have the RV with us - though not permanently situated yet.



The bathrooms my MIL put together:




Kitchen - using temporary shelving as storage, because all the cabinets, counter, everything is coming out and being redone (hopefully soon-ish!)

...and our kitchen curtains:

From the corner of the dining area looking out:


The fireplace area (wanted to get the wall hanging that ties all of our colors together with the grey-blue carpeting in the house in there )

We're getting a new well tank which should really help with the water pressure. Then... once the kitchen is done, the house will really be a home!

Oh - ignore the curtains temporarily thrown up over the deck windows. Those are there so we can close them to keep out a lot of the afternoon heat. The cats - strange things that they are - lie under them in the sun and must be like a million degrees. Go figure.

we have 3 cat trees up against the deck windows, 2 more at the other liv/din area windows and one tall one in the bedroom. any suggestions on what to do with the other 7? toss them in the guest bedrooms or family room that is just a storage room right now? flowerbelle's basket tree doesnt fit in this bedroom! we're thinking of taking the basket off and screwing it to the bookshelf so she has her happy place in our bedroom again.

thanks,

gary

If you're only using it as sotage then maybe you could move some of it around so the kitties have more room

Can you take her basket off and put it on a smaller tree? You can always get an old table and screw it into the top of the table and make the rest of the table a tree by carpeting it. That way, some of your less mobile furbabies have a tabletree.

"Lush" is not the word for it! It's like a jungle here! There's actually 4 more "yards" here - they snake up alongside the driveway, and it's several acres that need to be mowed. One was so overgrown we didn't even realize it was there at first! Believe me - the weight we took off moving is going to stay off with all the work we're going to have to put into the yard(s).

And Betsy - if you're willing to tend the yard, c'mon up! There's even a little gardening shed (shack, really) you can we can set up for you!

Tammy - you'll have to invite Gary's mom over for the decorating. We bought stuff we liked that was on sale - and if it works together, it's just because we got lucky. According to Gary's mom, we have WAY too much wood. But she helped us take what we have and make it work together pretty well.

I remember one of her first visits to our old house when she said "would you like me to arrange the items in the Curio?" I was so offended. Well - we let her set up the stuff in the Curio when we moved - and I gotta tell ya - it looks 1000% better than it did!

I love your new house. It looks so cozy, yet spacious at the same time. That yard is to die for. It's just beautiful.
