Pictures of the house!

This is our humble little house. I am having fun personalizing it and improving it. There is A LOT of work to do on your own house. There is always some project to do (or finish.) I love it!
We are on the corner of a little culda-sacThis is our family room. The whole lower level, family room kitchen and front room are hardwood floors. I painted over an overwhelming amount of green with tans and browns and...
ORANGE! I have always wanted an orange kitchen. It looks darker and deeper in real life. I love the orange. It makes me happy. I'm getting an area rug for our "conservatory" ,as Dave calls it, today. My mom is working furiously to make a couch slip cover, and I'm making drapes. See ALWAYS a project:)
This is our little backyard. It is recovering from the previous owners and their two big dogs. Dave has taken the yard on as his persona l mission. YEAH!

Whoa! You have a house!!!I almost didn't believe you until I saw it for myself. I wanted to come visit before, but now I think I have to come visit. I'm glad Dave made it home safely. The paint job looks great and I love the orange too!

I'm so happy for you Dan. I LOVE painting walls, it makes such a difference. Way to go on the colors- at first I was hesitant about the orange, but you pulled it off nicely.

Whoa, awesome on getting the house! We've been hot and cold on the house-buying issue; there are pros and cons to buying and not buying. But congrats on this new chapter in y'all's lives!
