Front Yard - Looking toward the house
Front Yard - Looking Toward the Street
Entering the front door, again, you come upon Cameron's office immediately
Continuing on down the hall, you spill into the kitchen
And family room
Backyard - Looking Out
Backyard - Looking toward the house

Go around the closet that separates the front bedroom and entry way from the rest of the house and you come upon Sydney's room
The house came with quite a selection on curtains, many which appeared to be fabric from the 70s! Sadly, those such curtains are still up in the master bedroom!
Otherwise, the house already looks quite different with our furniture in the house and we've made a few improvements already.
In the master bathroom, we have replaced the straight curtain rod with a curved one so that we don't feel so enclosed when showering, and we've replaced the toilets in both bathrooms. The old ones were too short and had a round bowl. We quickly realized we're oval-shaped bowl people.
In the backyard we have added some fencing to prevent the dogs from going from the backyard to the front yard and the road. This fence is only temporary. Cameron is in the process of building a much more permanent dog pen, given Gibson's propensity to dig (though we think part of this is because he is going after gophers; we have a gopher problem).
And in the laundry room we have added some shelves to make it more functional for our laundry storage needs.
There's so much we want to do inside and out, but we definitely need to pace ourselves as money is always something we have to be mindful of and we don't want to burn out either. We learned that the hard way just getting the old house ready for selling - at the time I didn't think I would want to paint another wall for at least another year. But I have to admit, I'm starting to get the itch in the new house already.My first goal in this house is to get the entry way painted and decorated. That could take me all of 2014 given all the other projects I have to work on as well.
