A Sneak Peek at the New House!

Now that the closets are cleaned out and the yard sales are finished,
 I thought you'd might like a sneak peek at the new house.

This is a view of the back entry of the house.  
That large window looks out of the family room.

Here's one of the garage. 
 It's where we've been focusing our attention.
  McG has been working on the inside - re-doing the wiring and updating the doors. 
He's taken down the drop ceiling inside, which I have no photos of, because
I'm a great blogger like that!!

He has also painted the metal roof with a rubberized paint. 
 We have plans to paint the house and garage a dark Charcoal grey with white trim. 
 Next summer we plan to turn that "car port" into a screened-in porch.
The mosquitoes are terrible here and that will give us an opportunity to stay out at night and enjoy the weather.

Can't you just see that arbour covered in climbing roses or a purple Clematis??!!
For right now it's looking a bit "Sanford and Son" since I've brought all my garden art from the other house
and just kind of dumped it in that small garden.  

This is a view of the back of the house from under the "car port". 
 It was a pre-fab house that was built in the 1970's. 
 The family room was added on sometime in the '80's. 

This cute little bungalow totally suits our needs for the future...
One floor living, no basement and a main floor laundry!!

It officially becomes "ours" at the end of August, but McG's sister and her husband
 (who are the current owners) have given us permission to start some of our projects!

Stay tuned as we begin this new journey!
