The House... or a very decorated (in an overly warm tone for me) version.
So I didn't want to put pictures of the model since our house really looks, and will look NOTHING like it. But since I want so badly to post pictures (this is for you Brooke), these will at least give you an idea. The outside of our house is dark brown (which I don't love, but that's ok.) You have to have some vision to imagine this house empty with white walls and mostly carpet :) In ours, the banister and cabinets are a dark espresso brown, and the granite is a gold/tan/brown swirly pattern, both of which I like more than the model. So we've got that on it.
These pictures are pretty much my favorite things about the house. The bathroom... need I explain? The entry to the master, we have all those cabinets... the uppers are an upgrade so we were lucky they came with ours (it fell out of escrow, so it had some nice upgrades included.) And the last picture is the view when you enter the house (ours is the mirror image... but I love the vaulted grand entrance with the staircase. You can see in that picture where the dining room is on the right, and the entrance to the family room which blends into the kitchen on the left (of the picture.)
March 25th!!! It's going to come so soon. I still can't figure out how we're supposed to come up with the time to pack up and clean up this whole house for a renter... but I'm sure all work (and deprivation since I'm no longer allowed to spend any money) will be worth it. We'll have space, so everyone, start planning your trip out!
And the floorplan for those of you as interested in houses as me.
