House Tour!

Avatar Katelyn | March 1, 2013 9 Views 0 Likes 0 Ratings

Currently my car, my hair, my clothes, my eyeballs, my shoes, and my house are covered in dust. I’ve been at the house all week during our tile demo/laminate wood floor installation and it is crazy over here! But before we post about the floor transformation, we realized we need to take a step back and give you guys a house tour! Can’t believe we haven’t done that yet! You’ll have to forgive us, we are derps.

You’ll recognize this picture from our very first post, it’s our little house looking quite dapper from the outside.

When you enter through the double doors, once you get the darn things open (they get stuck… need to fix that), you are in a little entry way facing the back of the fireplace. Might seem sort of awkward but it’s really not, we actually like it and plan to hang some art there and put a thin console table against it for candles/vases/flowers/whatever.

On the other side of the fireplace is our giant living room with huge lofted ceilings! This was one of the few older homes we looked at that Evan could walk through without bumping his head. A big win for us!

You’ll notice we already have seating and some art hung. Feeling homier already!

Here’s another view of the living room if you’re standing to the side of the fireplace looking back toward the dining room.

In this picture you can see through to the kitchen area. The previous owner did a LOT of work in the kitchen… all new custom cabinets, granite counters and backsplash, new lighting, stainless steel appliances (all except the fridge), and she even knocked out that big hole in the wall that opens the kitchen up to the living room.

In that last picture, we are standing in the breakfast nook that’s to the side of the kitchen. We actually have plans to turn this room into our home office (sounds strange now but I think it will work). Here is another view of the breakfast nook.

And to the left of our breakfast nook is the laundry room and access to the garage. And yes, that’s a big-ass sub zero freezer chilling (pun intended) with our washer and dryer. Gonna craigslist that beast. Anyone interested?

So when you’re in the living room facing the kitchen, to the left of the kitchen is the breakfast nook, and to the right of the kitchen is the dining room. If you scroll back up to the last living room picture, you can see the dining room in the back. The previous owner added some nice built ins so we have tons of storage. But the OCD in me cannot stand that the light is off-center. We’ll be changing that.

So when you enter through the front door, to your left you see the breakfast nook, kitchen, and dining room; directly in front of you is the living room; and to your right is a hallway that leads to the bedrooms and bathrooms.

We have a master bedroom, two spare bedrooms, a master bathroom, and a guest bathroom. One spare bedroom is empty and the other one is currently full of all the stuff we’ve moved in so far. Check out those sexy fans.

Then we have the master with really tall ceilings and his/her closets (more like her/her… I can’t fit all my stuff into just one!)

The previous owner completely redid the master bathroom and guest bathroom too. Here’s the master. It’s got a huge walk in shower with frameless glass door which is awesome, but you may notice something is off. No, I’m not talking about the funky pedestal sinks+middle vanity situation going on (though that is an odd set up). I’m talking about the fact that there’s no bathroom door. Weird…

I actually really like how she did the little guest bathroom though! It’s nice. Probably the ONE room in the house we don’t have any plans to change.

Well there you have it, our little 1928 sqft home! Of course, it currently looks a little different. As in the floor has been stripped down to the slab and everything is covered in plastic wrap and dust. Seriously, chaos. But it’s gonna be worth it!

    It’s perfect! I know you guys are working on it, but it’s even perfect in that regard. Doesn’t look like an overwhelming amount of work, there’s room for exciting improvement and its very Kately & Evan DYI friendly.

    Love that fireplace! Personality!! I’m such a happy and proud friend!

    Thanks!!! Lots of work taking place already- luckily we are doing the biggest change (floors) right now and all the others will be little so it’s not too overwhelming :D And yes I love the super tall fireplace! Can’t wait to have you over!

    Omg, so much cousin-envy going on right now – I want a house but that’s still several years away for us! :) So happy for you guys, and excited to live vicariously through your home-owning adventures!!!

      Can’t wait to share it with you! Honestly we are are still trying to wrap our head around owning a house it’s such a big thing. So much more expensive and time consuming than you would think too. Worth it tho :) or I think it will be lol. Excited to work on it more! Especially putting our art up on the walls

    I LOVE your house. Seriously, it is huge and amazing. Can’t wait to see all the changes you make! You guys are adorable and hilarious. My boy and I say the same thing – thank goodness we found each other, because no one else would “get” our weirdness. :)

    Thanks!!! We’re excited to see how it turns out too, haha most of the changes so far (aside from the floors) are things that benefit the structure of the house but don’t make a huge visual difference. So even though things like fixing leaks and getting our attic insulated makes Evan and I feel all warm and fuzzy, those aren’t changes that anybody else walking in is really going to appreciate. So we are super excited to get to the projects with fun before and after transformations haha! Omg and yes, some of us (you and your boy, me and Evan) are very lucky to have found somebody else who is in sync with our weirdness! ^_^
