Walk Through My New House with Me!

I have decided that, since we're moving yet again (our landlords are selling the house we rent, so we have to move) I thought it would be fun to take you on the moving journey with me. Besides already uploading a video showing some of the move, I plan to upload more videos as I go through the packing and organizing process of this move. I have the help of one daughter and 2 teenage sons, but not my husband.

My husband has been diagnosed with cancer and is undergoing chemotherapy. If any of you have had chemo, you know why he can't help. For those of you who have not, let me tell you, there is no way he can help. It's all he can do to go to work and get through the day.

Now, on to the move and our new house. You can watch my starting video here.
Below are pictures of our new house, labeled accordingly. As we move in, I'll show you how I decorate and change things up, making this new rental house a home.

The exterior front:

The den, which sits right off the kitchen and has a working fire place:

The dining room, looking into the kitchen. The doors on the left open up to a deck outside:

The dining room from the kitchen door, with a view into the living room:

The front entry. There is a closet and half bath to the right, beyond the window you see:

Kitchen, view one....a gas stove! YaY!

The kitchen, view two, toward the dining room. The refrigerator will be replaced with our 
water-and-ice-in-door side-by-side. This refrigerator will be moved to the basement as a back-up frig:

Master Bedroom, view one:

Master Bedroom, view two, showing walk-in closet and behind the open door is the master bath:

Basement, which will be transformed into a home office, craft space and spare bedroom. The laundry area is to the left, behind the stair wall:

And, finally, this is the back of the house:

So, there you have it! I did not post pics of the kids' rooms for privacy reasons. 
I'm excited to get to decorate a new house!
Come along on this ride and even feel free to share your ideas with me.


  1. It seems like moving into a new house can't be any more exciting for you! The new house looks clean and gorgeous. I'm looking forward to the updates about the changes, renovations, and makeovers you'll be doing inside and out! In any way, thanks for sharing this, Tricia! Congratulations and all the best to you!
