New House Tour - Grand Finale

I can't believe the number of times I've said to myself that this house feels like it was made for our family, from the moment I started obsessing over where everything will go and then eventually began unpacking our belongings. It all fits. From the floor plan to our overall style. 

We have lived in every size and configuration imaginable, and some fit us better than others. Some made me grouchy on a daily basis. (Salt lake City, I'm looking at you) Louisiana was an amazing, fancy, beautiful home, in the truest sense of a southern-style home. But it was small and there was no basement - it remains one of my favorites, nonetheless.

Our home is wherever the five of us are together, whether that's a tiny starter home in Northern California, or a chopped-up, mismatched rambler in Fargo. 

I'll find projects wherever we go, because I like the style our family has developed over the past 12+ years, not the finishes and colors the previous owners chose. And because I'm super persnickety.

Having said all of that, let's tour the basement and exterior. 

The basement is basically a family room (most likely a future man cave), a guest room, a bonus room of some sort, storage, and a walkout to the back yard.

The bonus room will be used for an exercise area and that's currently where my craft hoard is living.

When I took these pics the electricity hadn't been turned on, so you'll have to trust me, that room is huge.

Oh - there's a full bathroom too. Again, no lights, sorry.

The guest room is huge. Attention MOM: the guest room is huge, and I'll pretty it up for your stay. That goes for all future guests, but my Mom always needs extra coaxing.

The exterior is probably my favorite part of the whole house.

This is where we will live on chilly fall nights

And rumor has it, this is where the snake lives

Whatever. Snakes don't scare me. I'll share this yard with Bigfoot. It's just so nice to have a private back yard. 

So that's it!

Now let the unpacking continue and the customization projects begin...
