Home News...

We are under contract with a house located on the Missouri side, about 20 minutes from where we live now. We feel abundantly blessed to have found this home when we did, and are very excited about the potential it has. At this point, we completed the inspection, and a few repairs will be made prior to closing at the end of the month. At the inspection, I was able to take a lot of pictures, hopefully I can post them, and make sense of the layout of the home for you.

Exterior

Front of the house. One of three houses in a cul-de-sac.
Back view of the house.
One of the trees in the backyard. There are two in the back, and one larger in the front yard.

Entry Level of Home
Front door/entry.
"Formal" living room. I'm sure it will be empty for awhile.

The floor plan is called a side to side split, or atrium split. There are no full staircases, but rather several half-flights of stairs. The stairs leading up go above the garage, where the bedrooms, laundry, and hall bath are located. The stairs leading down, head to the half bath, garage, "informal" living, and deck.
This picture is taken from the kitchen. The carpeted area is the dining room. Looking through the spindles, you can see the fireplace down in the "informal" living space.
kitchen (just in case you couldn't figure it out)
Different angle of the kitchen.
Upper Level, above garage.
Master bathroom
Master bedroom, with long window seat.
Master closet.
View looking down the hallway from the master. Bathroom is on left, one bedroom in front, one to the right.
Hall Bathroom

Garage/Deck Level
Windows and door out to the deck.
"Informal" living room. The door pictured is a large storage closet.

Lowest Level, walkout basement

Clearly unfinished, but has a lot of potential uses in the future. A lot of light comes in and the possible purposes of this room are endless!
Another view...studded to have a nice size storage area as well.

After closing we hope to take our time moving in. We will be in possession of both the apartment and house for a month. This will allow us time to paint, make a few repairs, have carpets cleaned, etc. Lord willing, we will make the official move towards the end of July. Please continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

Thanks for all the pics! Great house! Nice details like closet rods, separate shower, and of course, I LOVE the window seat.

Congratulations on joining the world of home ownership (also known as The Money Pit).

Love it! Great light with all the windows and it looks like a great deck and yard. Can't wait to see it in person!
