So I know before moving into this neighborhood I was dying to find out what the inside of the houses looked like. At the moment we still have our loaner furniture, we have hardly any of our own stuff at all and it’s pretty much empty. But! It’s better than a hotel room!
So here are some pictures:
Front of house
Side of house, and tiny yard
Back of house, garage (two car!)
Dining room and kitchen
Den, forgot to take a picture of the living room but it’s the same size as this and is open plan to the dining room and kitchen
Entry way, front door, coat closet, bathroom, storage under the stairs
Looking toward front door, standing in living room, stairs up to second floor
Top of stairs, cabinet thing (linens, I don’t even know?) in the hallway next to kids bathroom
Top of stairs, we’ll be sticking a desk here for the kids, also a nice big storage room.
Master, please note that the kids bed’s were made and mine isn’t. Wonderful.
Master closet, it’s actually off the bathroom which is nice. LOTS of space.
So there it is, can’t wait to actually get our stuff so we can make this house our own. I’ve been meaning to get some paint for the kids rooms and get that done before all of our stuff gets here. It’s nice to go from under a thousand square feet to over 1,700. Lots more room to stretch out!
So we moved into our house this week, it has been WONDERFUL to get out of a hotel room. Everyone needed a door to close to get away from everyone else. I love my children but I am really, really glad that I can send them upstairs to play, or to the park right behind our house.
We have some hideous awesome temporary furniture that we get to use until our stuff gets delivered. But really, it’s nice to have beds, a couch and a table and chairs. The same day we moved in we had our temp furniture delivered, our express shipment delivered and had satellite tv hooked up. So we at least have enough stuff to cook and get through the next month. It’s been great to be able to cook dinner again. It’s going to be a long time until we eat fast food!
There is a LOT that I want to do to this house. I really want to paint some walls but we have to get approval first… Also our (tiny) yard is pretty much just red dirt. So I am really looking forward to getting some grass seed in there and doing some gardening. I have a little papaya tree in my front yard and I am hoping I can actually get it to produce some big ol’ papaya.
Oh, and one of the perks of living in Hawaii? I found a roach today in my kitchen. Since we have hardly any food it must have already been here. Needless to say I was throwing up in my mouth, I have NEVER had to deal with roaches before! First thing tomorrow I am calling maintenance to have them come spray the crap outta my house. I can deal with ants and spiders but roaches are a deal breaker.
Need to take some pictures to show, but we’ve been so crazy running around getting errands done. Really looking forward to relaxing and settling in!
