I am trapped inside today because we are having our house painted!! I am so excited! So since I am trapped in my house I was inspired to post about my house.
Since I have been married, we have lived in 3 very different houses. Our first house be bought in Gilbert and it was a lovely little home! I loved it!! It was 1500 sq feet right by an elementary school. It was super cute with a nice sized grassy yard. It was a perfect first house, and even a perfect house for a growing family. Well we sold it when the real estate was booming. We sold it for way more than we payed for it, the day we put a sign in our yard (it wasn't even listed).
Then we moved to Queen Creek to a gynormous 2800 sq feet house on more than an acre. It was beautiful and we dumped all our money (from selling our last house) into it... it was way too big and way too much for us, I realize that now! I loved the house, but didn't love the location. The only thing I really miss about this house is all the storage. My hallways were lined with beautiful cabinets and we had a huge 3 car extended garage. Oh.. and the double shower ;)
Well now we live in a very old, and very run down 1200 sq foot home... AND ITS MY FAVORITE!!! I love it here, way more than I ever thought I would. I almost cried the first time I walked through the house thinking, I am going to move HERE? It's my in-laws house and we moved in, with the plan and hopes of making some money re-modeling it. We have painted (both inside and out), re-carpeted, took down the popcorn ceilings, put all new light fixtures and ceiling fans in.. and thats just the begining. I love the quaintess of this cute little house. I love my ward and the area... I couldnt be happier. (I just wish we had more storage)! I love it here! I'm posting the before pics we took and when the outside is done, I'll post after pics. You'll be amazed (just like I am!)
