today's find on

Found this home within our price range that meets all of our requirements... and just like last time, I'm going to list my likes and dislikes about each room!

Curb appeal likes:
love the brick/stone combo
nice landscaping
two trees

could use more colorful flowers
fence looks a little worn

Living room likes:
nice fireplace & mantle
good size
nice paint color
carpet's in good shape
bright windows

could have wood floors?
would like crown molding

Formal living room likes:
light and bright
good size
chair rail
good sized window

do we really need one?
wood floors would be better

Breakfast nook likes:
window seat
open to kitchen
good size
tile floors
bright windows

light fixture
that's it!

Kitchen likes:
granite countertops
lots of cabinets
newish appliances
bar with stools
tile backsplash
walk in pantry

wood looks weird and too light
stainless steel appliances would look better
different paint color

Dining room likes:
arched entries
looks like there's a window

looks a little small
needs wood floors
new paint color
is there room for an 6-seater table and china cabinet? hmm.

Study likes:
French doors
wood floors
chair rail
right off of entry

wall color

Master bath likes:
separate tub & shower
double vanity

can't see a lot of storage
hoping there's a big closet
hoping there's tile floors
hoping there's a linen closet

There were no pictures of the backyard or other bedrooms/bathrooms, so this would definitely be one we'd need to stop by and tour before considering it any further. But I like it in general! :) What do y'all think?

My only question is why there are no photos of bedrooms. A little suspicious to me. Other then that it is cute!

I think you should figure out how much it would cost to put in hard wood floors in an entire house and add that to your budget. I would prefer all wood, too, but (and I'm not looking like you are) I don't think there are many homes out there that have all wood.

I enjoy this blog - it's full of such good ideas!

Cute house!! Love the room designs you come up with for your 'dream home'....I'm dreaming too and collecting pictures along the way for when that time comes... :)
