Info/Pictures of the new House

I have had quite a few requests for pictures of the new house, so I copied these from the realtor's website...I hope they don't mind :o)

The house has 3 bedrooms, 1.5 baths, a living room, a family room, a nicely updated kitchen, and a full (unfinished) basement that can be used for a play area as well.  The house sits on 3.9 acres to the west of Evansville in Posey County.  It is along a state highway, but we are saying it is in the country.  There is a dense tree line to the east of the house, but there will be a lot of grass for me to mow in the summer time!  Doug and I will have to work on a space so that we can put out a garden, and we will have to work on some areas to make flower beds...I'm going to miss my nicely established ones in Iowa.  OK...on to the pictures.

The front of the house - with an attached 2.5 car garage.  (The house sits on the south side of the highway; therefore, it faces the north)
This is standing at the front door looking into the living room.  You can see the kitchen through the doorway and window.
This is standing in the doorway from the living room.  You can also see the family room addition (through the window and doorway) the sellers added in '98.
This is the family room addition on the back of the house.  It has a cozy bay window seat that you can partially see to the left, and it has the patio doors leading to a covered patio area outside.
This is part of the backyard.  As you can see, it is fenced in which will be great for the kids beings we are on the highway.  Also, note the basketball goal already on the barn!  Welcome to the Hoosier state!  The swingset you see in the picture is going with the sellers, but we are bringing our swingset from Iowa.
Until next time...

I can't speak for the inside, but the pictures don't do justice for the outside! It is a nice looking house! It will be especially nice when you can call it your own!

I see myself sitting at the bay window with a cup of morning coffee,maybe a good book or possibly with a grandchild or two on my lap! So thankful for God's blessings. We have so many.
