The House. Our House.

This weekend was very laid back. The best part of the weekend? Visiting our house to take measurements and photos!

So instead of the usual Scenes from the Weekend post, I thought I’d share some pictures of our favorite features in our soon-to-be home. πŸ™‚


Hello, bay window. We love you.


The dining room (and the whole house, really) has some GORGEOUS wood work. But the wallpaper has to go. We’re trying to decide between yellow and green for the wall color….leaning towards yellow!


We’re loving the built-in cabinets in the dining room.

The fridge + freezer has so much space and will be so much easier to organize than our current one!


Dan is especially excited for the dishwasher, since our deal is typically “Julie cooks, Dan cleans up.” πŸ˜‰


These pretty white shelves are going to be perfect for displaying all my glass jars and bulk bins.


The kitchen appliances are all pretty new, and I’ve never seen a stove with 5 burners!


We’re thinking of storing our bikes in this space by the front door, under the stairs, for easy access.


Another bay window. This is going to be the office/crafting room, and is the room I’m most excited to decorate and set-up. Except for maybe the kitchen. Not a huge fan of the wall color, so I think we’re going to repaint the room blue.


Great wall color + walk-in closet in the bedroom.


Another big closet in the guest room. But the wall colors have to go.


The laundry room is big, bright and cheery, and on the second floor. It has some great cabinets, too. Want to know why? The house used to be split into two apartments, so what is now the laundry room used to be the upstairs kitchen! See the oven hood above the dryer?


Great deck for lounging and grilling, with a fenced in yard for Max.


Excited about the yard space + flower boxes on the deck for the Savvy Garden!


We need to replace the broken windows, but having a garage will be nice!

So there you have it. An intro to our soon-to-be house. Exciting, no?

What did you do this weekend?

    The house is gorgeous! Isn’t it fun dreaming & planning spaces and colors? Congratulations again to you & Dan! (And Max, too! It looks like the yard will be well loved :))

    This looks like an awesome house, Julie! I love the stairs and the kitchen. My next house will have direct light into the kitchen. Ours now has no sunlight in the kitchen. No bueno. Have fun!

    Very exciting!! Love the house with the wood-work and floors! Gorgeous! I’m very attracted to older styled homes, but with NEW amenities (like those lovely kitchen appliances!). Congrats on the new home, and have FUN!! The DH and I are also looking to buy our first home together (we’re about the same age as you and your mister!), and we’re pretty pumped about the prospect!!

    The hubs and I looked over your post just now, and we LOVE your new house!! It totally reminded us of some German homes that were actually apartments stacked on top of each other. We had so many friends in Europe who had a kitchen on every floor! haha

    Anyway, so exciting!!!

      We may very well take you up on the painting offer!

      And the house reminded us of your place when we were house-hunting. πŸ™‚

    very exciting! this is the first weekend in a month or two that we *didn’t* spend traipsing through open houses, having gone up to the mountains to play in the snow instead. it must be pretty exciting to have finally settled on your own place! =)

    I love the windows! Well, the rest of the house seems to be pretty awesome too, but the windows are just gorgeous. Not a fan of most of the wall colors there either; I would suggest to try to paint them with bright colors – I think it would look very nice with the dark wood.
