who asked ever so nicely for pictures of the new domicile...
First, the front door, complete with the fabulous door knocker that BG's brother and wife gave us for Christmas last year.
The first floor is laid out like this:
Walking in through the front door, to the left is the living room
and the dining room on the right.
Directly in front is the
waiting room foyer
with a niche to the right
and hallway to the garage on the left.
The 2 1/2 car garage houses the Jeep quite nicely
with plenty of room for Mt. Cardboard and our Things In Which To Transport The Boy collection.
Back down the hall to the family room and
which faces the kitchen
and the breakfast nook.
What's that? Something funk-tablu-astic over there in the corner caught your eye? Oh, that. That's just my "new" 1950's George Jetson dinette set. Which is simply the most kick-ass place you'll ever set a cup of coffee.
I'm not kidding.
The boy has a corner for all his downstairs stuff
and has apparently taken to marking his territory.
Heading back up the stairs, the layout looks like this
To the right, from the top of the stairs is the bonus room.
To the left and down a small hallway (a u-turn from the stairs) is what will be the guest room and bathroom. Currently empty, so not much of a picture. The bathroom is straight ahead; the room is on the right.
Directly behind the hallway leading to the guest quarters and to the right is the laundry room. A whole room for laundry! Look closely and you'll see that all this space for that task alone has not caused any decrease in the amount of time that the clothes sit in the washer/dryer. The ruby red color is a treat, though, when I finally make it in there!
Across the hallway (to the left, for those following along with the floor plan) is LG's playroom
with a Jack-n-Jill bathroom
that leads to his bedroom.
Back to the top of the stairs and just a few feet in from the bonus room is the foyer to the master suite.
The door way to the left leads to the bathroom with a
and his-n-her sinks.
And this is the bedroom. Sans curtains. Which might be why curtains are the first thing to go up on the houses down the hill from us.
Room enough for all of you and the young 'uns, so you'uns just give us'uns a holler when you get to the corner. I'll make sure the vittles is ready and the cornbread is pipin' hot.
