I love the front porch and can't wait to put up a porch swing on that far end. The hooks are even already there.
The front door opens into this entry hall. The door has an old-fashioned doorknob, and the entire house is done with period details but also the most modern conveniences and all energy-efficient, green construction.
Straight through the entry is the living room (where Ryan is) . The door on the left is a little powder room.
There is a study to the left of the front door (no picture yet) and then the red dining room is on the right. I do love red but I want to paint this room a more neutral taupe so I can decorate for the seasons with all my cute stuff.
I have always wanted a butler's pantry, and there is one with hutches on either side of this passage into the kitchen. There is also another built-in hutch in the dining room to the right of the butler's pantry door.
This is the view from the living room into the beautiful all-white kitchen. Love it.
Another thing I have always wanted: a farmhouse sink. See, I told you this was my dream house!
The living room has a pellet stove and built-in cabinetry. Also wired for a flat-screen TV above the fireplace which may not be the most decorative but will be way cool if we ever get one. The big chunky thing in the middle of the room is a cross-section of the walls. The house is made of concrete, surrounded by foam and is built to withstand an F3 tornado! What am I going to do with that big chunk of wall?
Leaded glass windows!
These sliding doors off the living room open into a screened porch with a gas fireplace, and that opens onto a back deck overlooking the backyard and the woods.
There is another small screened porch off the master bedroom. Not sure what I want to do with it yet.
The master bath is super vintage-looking. Macauley said the first thing he wants me to do when we move in is use the tub, which is at this point not even hooked up (one of those loose ends I mentioned). I bought some big glass knobs for the drawers.
This is Macauley's room...a really good size with a window seat both in the room and in the closet, too. He wants to put his toy kitchen in the huge closet and call it his apartment.
