Well friends, this past weekend we may have found our future house.
We’ve been going back and forth about when we’re going to move and have been teasing ourselves with looking at houses. I think we’ve decided not to move for another year at the earliest, but I think we found a good contender for a house when the time comes. It’s in a new community again, so we would build it and be able to pick out a lot of our own features.
The kitchen and dining area – which is open to the living room. The kitchen is about the same size as our current kitchen, but the overall layout to the dining area and living room is more open. Plus, we would gain a pantry and little desk area (below).
The left is a little “planning center” with a desk and cabinets – a place for mail, bills and, down the road, a place for kids to do homework. No more mail strewn across the island! The picture on the right is the huge pantry – score!
A couple more views of the laundry room. Tons of hanging space. I will no longer have clothes hanging all over the guest room and clothes baskets all over the place.
Overall, we think it fits all of our must haves and we’re exciting about the possibility! What are your must haves for your house?
