Our new home

We are so excited to start the next chapter in Meadow, Utah! We fell in love with this home as soon as we saw it. It needs some love but it is love we are more than ready to give. I am so ready to walk barefoot in the grass, even if it is only planted in the front and side of the house. The back will go in later this summer or next we hope. A two car garage was on the boys list which Gary and I thought was funny. They want somewhere to ride their bikes inside but I'm not sure they realize they are too big to ride in the garage - even if it is a bit over sized.

The back yard is ready for whatever we want to do with it. The door comes off the dining/living room area and Gary and I are planning on putting a deck across the back in the next few years.
Here is the living room. It's a big open room with the kitchen and dining room and we can't wait to have all that space. Anyone know a good place to get a gas fireplace insert? That needs to go in this fall. It will be sad not having a wood burning stove but I am not going to miss the ash mess that comes with it!
The basement is mostly finished. There is a large family room ready for our entertainment center and furniture that still lives at the furniture store. It's good to have dreams! For now the boys are already calling it the perfect place to shoot their nerf guns. We'll have to see about that. When we have overnight guests, they'll get to sleep on our first class air mattress in this room.

Here is the other end of the room The staircase is really pretty with the wood finish they used and the wall color is great too. We don't have to do anything in this room and that is soooo very nice.

There is a full bathroom downstairs that is really big. One day it will be the boys bathroom to share but for now they can share the full bath upstairs.

The previous owners used this room as an exercise room. We'll call it the toy room. It will be so nice to have all the toys downstairs and out of the bedrooms again. One day we may add a closet and make it a very large bedroom but that is a long way down the road.

There is room in the basement for two more bedrooms. We hope to start on those this winter and move the boys downstairs. We'll see how the fire season pans out though.

The backyard is HUGE! The lot is almost an acre. One day it will have grass and a garden area. The boys also want a swing set and sand box again. I'm glad there is tons of room and we can make it our own.
