Our House

So I am finally getting to put some pics of the house. We are just renting it, but when I first came out here to look at houses the one I wanted looked just like this one. But it had a HUGE fenced in back yard that would have been perfect, but the owner's father stepped in and was being a little unreasonable so needless to say, we didn't get the house. But this house is in the same neighborhood, same layout, nice and quiet culdesac. It is 1768 sf, with 4 br, 2 ba, 1 car garage. It has a cute screened in porch on the back. There isn't much of a back yard, but we have a little side yard and the front yard. The kids like to ride their bikes in the driveway and down the street. I love the privacy and the fact that I don't have neighbors below or above us!!!! WHOOO HOOOO! So all the noise that is made is ours. That I can handle...sometimes. ;) It obviously isn't my dream home, but it works for us now and is great. I am very grateful to have it be our home. And the price isn't too bad either.

My cute red door...needs to be repainted, but that isn't our job and they are stingy. ;) And it wouldn't be my door if it didn't have my "Texan Spoken Here" sign. That is how people say they know it is my house! Thanks Mom and Dad.

This is the view from the main street as you are driving up to the house. We are on the corner of two streets. The bus stops right here so I LOVE IT!

This is the end of our property line.

Facing house on the left.

Front yard, lots of shade and squirrels eating pine cones on the porch!

Left side of house. I took the picture crooked, the house isn't that crooked! There was a little blue truck in my way.

Living room from front door by stairs.

Other corner of living room looking up the stairs. The ceiling goes all the way up.

Looking down hallway from the top of the stairs.

Looking down at the LR from top of stairs. (and my cute husband)

Cute home! I love it! So roomy - one thing I wish we had...more room. Enjoy the Southeast. I love it out that way.
