Our New House Before Pics (Part Two!)

Hi friends! So excited to share the second half of our before photos from the new house. In case you missed it, check out part one here! Again, keep in mind that every single photo looks yellow-tinted…because EVERY single wall is painted the same shade of yellow and EVERY lightbulb is a weird orangey-yellow…eek!!  Anyways, on to the tour!

Let’s start with my favorite “room” in the house. THE POOL. Yessss!!!

There are so many things I love about this backyard. Obviously the pool and hot tub is awesome and one of the main reasons we bought this house. Something that set this one apart from other houses we liked is the total privacy in the backyard. You literally can not be seen (except from inside our house!) when you are in there! Of course the pool needed a good cleaning. 😉

We both also love this giant covered patio. We’ve spent many evenings dining outside! 🙂 What we don’t love? The giant scary bushes everywhere! 😛

Not quite as fun as swimming, but since laundry is a chore that has to be done, I appreciate this giant laundry room. It’s like 10 times larger than our last one!

There’s a guest bathroom just behind the laundry room:

And behind the bathroom is a bedroom that’s on the total opposite end of the house from the other three bedrooms. This was another huge reason we picked this house—it’s perfect for long-term guests, or even a rental if we wanted! 🙂

I showed you all the staircase that is in the kitchen last time, but here it is again. Upstairs is a huge bonus room that is still empty—but hopefully not for long! Oh and yes—it has a wet bar and no, I’m not mad about it! 😀

Now we’ll head back downstairs and to the other end of the house where the three remaining bedrooms are. Here’s the hallway:

The middle bedroom will be Scott’s office (we did not pick these curtains lol!):

As you can see from the photo above, there’s a bathroom. It actually connects this room to the next bedroom, which will be my studio! 🙂

Now let’s head to the master, another favorite room!! 🙂

The door below goes out to the pool! So nice for swims and when the dogs decide they need a potty break at 3 am. 🙂

The master bath is a complete mirror of itself. We each have a vanity with sink, a linen closet and a walk-in closet:

In the middle is a shower as big as the one we left at our last house, yay! And a toilet…not glamorous but needed. 🙂
