When I first arrived to our house I was shocked by the size of it. The house is an 1800 square feet three bedroom, 1 1/2 bath with a large fenced in backyard we share with our landlords. The main floor has a very large open living/dining/kitchen area with more than enough room for Lucy the Great Dane to have room to sprawl out. When I walked in the door I believe my first words were “Holy Shit!” I quickly realized we didn’t have near enough furniture. Others have not had this problem, as they have moved into smaller house or townhouses with smaller rooms, so please do not think this is the norm. One couple I know barely fit all of their furniture into their house.
Here is a quick tour of the first floor around the time we moved in.
Kitchen looking a hot mess:
One side of the living/dining room with Military Temporary Furniture:
The other side of the living room:
The couch and chair combo leave much to be desired in the living room. We are using a coffee table as a tv stand and have no lamps, rugs, or tables. Joe and I immediately began throwing out ideas about how we would like our house to look, starting with the first floor. In the next couple of weeks, I will be sharing our plans to make our house a home.
