Our Blank Slate!

Welcome to our townhome!

As you may have read in my About Me section, we just bought our first home!! It is a townhome, which we were not super expecting. We were hoping for a single family home, but we had been out bid on several offers during our house hunt in our crazy market.

Our agent sent us the link to our townhome the day I decided to give up! When Nate got home from work, we looked at it together and decided it looked nice, so we headed over to check it out. Because it’s a new build, we were able to put in an offer right at price and it got accepted! It was such a whirlwind, but we got it all done.

We love the home, but it is definitely brand new and generic. It still had dust from the drywall on the ground! Everything is greige. The walls, ceilings, mouldings, doors, flooring and carpet. The cabinets were white and dark brown. We were able to get a washer/dryer and fridge moved in, and we were set.

Here are some pictures of our blank slate! These are from a walk through as we were closing, so they are a little haphazard, but they will give you an idea of what we are working with. We are on a quest to add character and personal touches and make it home. I’m so excited, it’s hard to slow down enough to make sure we’re not making mistakes and we’re actually doing what we want with the space. I have soooo many ideas for what I want to do. I’m excited to share our journey with you!

Outside we face the courtyard
They are going to be adding BBQ’s and a splash pad, I’m so excited!
Our porch, which we will share with our neighbor
I love the color of our door!
I want to paint the entryway so bad
The door opens to the entryway, which splits to the first and second level
This side of the living space will be Raylee’s play area
Kind of a weird setup with wall space. We’re going to try and have our TV in front of the left wall space.
Such a long room! This will be a challenge to design.
I really like the kitchen setup and how much storage space there is.
Room for our fridge
I’m also really glad we have a pantry!
There’s a gorgeous window in the landing between second and third floor. I love it.
Full bath upstairs
Bedroom upstairs. This one will be a spare for now.
Downstairs room leading to the garage. This will be our game room!
Door leading to patio and courtyard. I can’t wait to design the patio!

Overall, it’s super nice space! We just want to put our mark on it, give it some character and make it home. ❤
