I finally have the House Tour mostly up-to-date, and in honor of it being Friday – and Karen’s House Tour link-up party – I thought it was a good day to share it with everyone. You can always access the House Tour page from the top of the blog, too.
We bought our house – in a Denver suburb – in 2007. We hadn’t even considered a new build but when we stumbled upon our future neighborhood it was in the close-out stages with the builder. Our house was already built, finishes picked, appliances ordered, etc. In general, the builder picked the upgrades we would have prioritized at the time on our newly engaged, first jobs budget – hardwood floors and air conditioning – and we’ve spent the last 5 years putting our own touch on the builder grade. We fell in love with the Craftsman Cottage curb appeal when we pulled up to the house and never looked back.
As you walk through the front door of our house you see our great room – half dining room, half living room to the left and our home office/playroom through an archway on the right.
The office is my transition zone – half office, half play room. I’m never sure how to best use the space and it’s never looking top notch, but it is what it is.
