i must once again apologize for my unprofessional pictures. there are so many huge windows in our new house, and i didn't really get to select the time of day that i took these photos. so they're not that great, but at least you can get an idea of what our new house looks like. i had about ten minutes to shoot the entire house before the movers came. so again...not the best they could be, but they're just the "before" photos.
our house has two front doors that form an L shape on the front porch. one door goes into the living room. the other into the parlor. we don't use the parlor door. so the living room door is our main entrance.
the bottom floor is basically a big square. the front two rooms are the living room and parlor. the back two rooms are the kitchen and dining room. basically... :)
here's the living room.
standing at the front door, there is a door in the opposite corner that leads to the upstairs. on the outside wall there are three huge windows (which no longer have those lovely window coverings! :))
front door. no, it's not real stained glass, but just a film thing that we took off right away.
just beside the front door is the door leading into the parlor, which we're currently using as a playroom and will eventually use as an office once we sell half of our toys!
here is the parlor.
there is a small closet (the door on the left). the open door is looking back into the living room.
this is the other front door that is now covered by our ikea bookcases.
there is a massive window on the front of the house. it's huge! i'm not sure how we're going to dress it, but i absolutely love it. it's so beautiful and one of my favorite features of the house. eventually i'd like to have built in bookcases on this wall with a large, comfy window seat at that window.
a smaller window on the next wall.
moving to the right, the next wall has a huge opening with massive pocket doors. this looks into the dining room. notice the light on the ceiling. just a little off center! :) oh the randomness of old houses!
thus ends the front of the house home tour! more to come soon.
