Our New House

I say house because it isn't quite home yet. We still need a real dining table and chairs. I haven't found all my kitchen boxes yet. 

Some of us are still living out of suitcases. 

In this picture you can see the stove is missing. Jake got it installed today. Our first meal? Is embarrassing to admit! Van de Kamp fish and mac-n-cheese. Seems both our mothers used to fall back on that one when we were little. 

I'm refusing to get rid of my boxes just in case this moving thing happens again. They won't mind sitting in storage. 

We got Porter's art desk set up and bought him some oil paints.  

He and I both picked a painting to copy. 

We bought one side of a three bedroom, two bath duplex. Brand new construction. The other side is only partially constructed and we hope to buy it, as well, to rent out. 

Beyond this, our goal is a house with land enough for the harsey. 

The girls love having their custom carved beds, and all their other stuff back in their space. 

And I have my piano back! Happy day! 

This was a really lousy tour of a really messy house, but I knew some of you would appreciate being kept up to date on our happenings.

  1. Congratulations on owning this wonderful house! However, I noticed that based these pictures, not everything is yet settled. Anyway, your new home seems to be wide and spacious that you can do anything that you want to. How's the first few months living there? It's my pleasure to hear from you, Tiana! Thanks for sharing this post. All the best to your family!

  2. That's a really pleasant purchase. It's also smart that you are thinking of renting out a room or two. That always helps pay the bills and all the other expenses in the house. It also adds a lot of integrity to your house, by making it seem well-put enough, that it's able to provide a nice rest to somebody else. Always a good thing.

  3. After we closed on the house, we decided to buy new furniture for the living room and dining room. Do your homework here because all those little fees can add up. We found a place right on the edge of town with the same furniture but prices were much lower and they even included the delivery charge into the price too.
