The Final Messy House Tour ;)

10 May

Hey everyone!! Today I am showing off the outside of the house as well as the basement!

The front of the house – which most of you have seen :)

The backyard – Emma loves all the space :D

The other side of the back yard.

The deck from the view of the grill ;)

The other side of the deck – Have you noticed Emma was in almost every picture? She was running around following me everywhere :P Don’t know if you notice or not but you can also see a little view of the mountains in the middle of the houses. I’ll have to take some pictures along the drive because the mountain views here are GORGEOUS!

Now we head down to the basement. To the right there is extra storage, to the front there is fittings for a bath, to the left back corner is an egress window (so we can put a legal bedroom if we want!), and to the back left is extra large extra space where we are putting a game area (pool table, tennis table, foosball, etc.)

If you haven’t noticed yet the basement is WHITE!! It wasn’t white we moved in. It was your typical concrete floor with insulation to the floor. The previous owners had pets down here and we thought we’d just air it out. Apparently – which I had no idea – concrete absorbs odors as well as liquid so the smell wasn’t coming out.

Thanks to my amazing Dad and some help from the Home Depot guys – we found this. It’s a sealant to put over odors, mold, etc. It’s white! My dad is on his second coat of this and then we’ll be painting the basement a typical gray concrete color to seal it again. We are all hoping this works so we can finally have the basement for storage!

There is the back corner where I’ll be using it as storage. It’s a nice small area which is all we will need.

A close up of the bath fittings and where there will be a future bathroom!

Last but not least our two car garage – that at the moment only fits one car ;) Yes we have a ton of crap out there!!

It’s a nice space though :D Once we get all of the things out it will be much more useful!

What do you think!?

I’ll try to get some local view shots as well as the playgrounds and etc. in the area!  <3

We are so excited to finally be moved in!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Love Always,

    Its beautiful! I love the fact it has a picket fence, I’ve always dreamed of owning a wonderful house with a white picket fence bit bizarre no? lol!

    P.s. I also quite like the basement in white ;)

      I love it too!!! I’ve always dreamed of having one too – that’s crazy!!

      I kind of like it white too – it makes it look even bigger and super clean ;) but the extra coat of paint will help seal it so much better.

What do you think? Let us know below!
