The morning sun attempting to peek through the fog this odd morning.
Well, I said I'd be back when I had something to show you!
The Parade of Homes has been going on since this last weekend and I was finally able to make a trip out (haven't been good leave-home days for me lately) with Dagan and Leah last night to see the model home of the house they are going to have built. Yes!! They are getting a house!! :):)
This is the picture tour of the model home. I will try and remember all the changes Dagan and Leah are making as I go along. Here's the front view. They are going to have a triple garage (so they don't have to pay for a storage garage anymore).
They're going to bring the front door forward so that the garage door inside the house will enter into this entryway hallway. The door that is open is to the unfinished basement and you can see the stairway to the second floor.
In the Great Room is the living room...
...dining room with patio door (they'll be putting in a deck)...
...kitchen (I don't think they're having white cupboards and they are getting a different island)...
...and there's a bathroom on the left there at the end of the kitchen. The door straight ahead is to the garage, but Dagan and Leah are moving the garage door and changing that back wall area into a pantry.
This is the other wall in the living room.
When you go up the stairs (there will be a wood top and trim on the top of this stairwell half wall)...
...there's a kind of open area there for something or another. On the right is the master bedroom and on the left is a second bedroom.
The master bedroom has enough room for their huge bedroom set.
They want to put a pocket door on this wall (because the walk in closet is behind there) and push it back about a foot.
Door to the master bath on the left.
Double sinks (doubt they'd have white cabinets)...
...a water closet with a pocket door...
...and a shower. They plan on putting in a tub and shower instead.
The walk in closet...
...which they plan to make into a little smaller walk through.
This is the other bedroom next to the master bedroom.
Then walking to the other side of the upstairs (aren't these three little windows cute?)...
...there's another bedroom at the opposite end of the hall.
All the bedrooms are nice sized!
And have decent closet space.
There's a bathroom in the hallway...
...and a nice sized laundry room...
...and then a fourth bedroom...
...with a smaller walk-in closet.
The downstairs won't be finished off--so it will look like this with the insulation and plastic. When you go down the stairs there's this storage area that runs under the front hallway...
...more storage under the stairwell...
...a big room...
...with plumbing available for another bathroom in the corner on the right...
...and a nice sized furnace room.
So that's it! Gives you an idea of what Dagan and Leah's new home is going to look like. They were told it might be done by August!!
We drove over by the lot they have picked out, too. That's a church back there that is going to be building on to the backside (facing us) and putting in a big parking lot. So Dagan and Leah's back yard will face the corner of the church parking lot eventually. This shot would be facing the front of the house and the lot would go from stake to stake.
There will be houses all around two sides of the church parking lot.
It was so exciting to see the model home and get a better idea of what their house is going to look like. They're in the process of picking flooring and fixtures and such. I wanted to save it as a surprise until I had the pictures to show you.
I'm so happy for them!!!! :):):)
That's the big news from Fargo.
Happy, happy Wednesday!!
