A Brief Look At Our New Home

Above is a picture of our new house. Disregard the 2002 date stamp. The photo was taken a few weeks ago by my stepdad…I guess he wasn’t paying attention. I’ve always liked houses built in this style, with the porch going across the front. It’s very cute and simple, and sort of country looking, which I like. We still have to paint the porch and the shutters, and we’re probably going to break up the “walk way” that comes out from the middle of the porch and just let the grass go over it. And we’re going to build new flowerbeds, but we probably won’t do that till next spring.

All in all, it’s a very nice house, especially for a “starter” home. And of course it has its pluses and minuses.

Pluses: Big back yard, Huge outbuilding, Brand new laundry room (just added on to the house), Big kitchen/dining area, 3 bed rooms, 1 1/2 baths, Has a living room + the previous owner closed in the garage to make a den area (this room will be our office), Large deck area. Plus we’ll have new appliances, fans, carpet, and paint.

Minuses: The bedrooms & bathrooms are small. Lack of closet space (I sense a post coming on this). The outbuilding needs some work. No garage/carport. (but we have room to build one off to the right of the house, or we could use part the outbuilding to park cars.) Also, not sure how energy efficient the house will be.

My Favorite Feature: The Kitchen Area or the den/office room.
My Husband’s Favorite Feature: The Den/office. His second favorite feature is the outbuilding aka his “Man Cave” or “The He-Man Woman Hater’s Club.” (he’s a Little Rascals fan)

I’ve been imagining where all the furniture will go and how all our stuff will be arranged in cabinets…but imagining just isn’t quite the same as actually doing. I can’t wait to move in!


  1. Oh Jerri what a beautiful house with a wonderful porch to sit out on of an evening!

    Wishing you all the best in your new home and may you have much happiness there 🙂
