My New Castle

I'm having a rather strange "you know you're a mom when" moment. Hmm... I wonder why?



And here is my new castle! BUAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! NOW I CAN COMPLETE MY PLANS FOR WORLD DOMINATION AND SUPREME POWEERR!!!!!

(cough cough) I mean... er.... here is my quaint new abode for my little family and myself.
I really don't don't have any plans for world domination.

Really.


As you can see, its a new construction, never been lived in before. Believe me, they are a dime a dozen around here. So, there no grass or anything. Luke will put in a sprinkler system and seed this summer so hopefully next year we will have the makings of a nice yard. And while its not much of a porch, it has a porch!!! Yippee!


I truly LOVE my new castle!! The above picture was taken from the front door.



And here is my wonderfully magnificent kitchen! I'm in love. No more putting food in odd places and stuffing bowls and plates on top of each other.
Did I mention that I love my kitchen and its beautiful marble counter tops?

Master bedroom and bathroom.


Just around the corner from the front door is the hallways that has the other two bedrooms, the other bathroom and the laundry room.


And of course, a garage! No more trudging kids through the snow to get to the car! Or spending two hours scrapping ice off the windshield.
And it has an unfinished basement which, over time, we plan to finish for more rooms, obviously. It also has a cold storage room under the porch.

Have I mentioned yet that I LOVE my new castle?

Uh oh, better get back to packing before Luke catches me on the computer!

I love it--it's absolute fantastic! I'm so glad you all got such a wonderful house. It's beautiful. I'm a bit envious, but I have many years before that needs to be part of my life. Glad you love it, too.

Brittney said...

WOW... it's absolutely gorgeous! Congratulations! I know older can be cheaper, but I sure don't like the idea of having to fix things up. How nice that no one has lived in it. I have been thinking about purchasing a home lately.... I don't think it will happen for a while for us still..

CONGRATULATIONS SARAH!! I'm so happy for you! Now you'll be able to get that garden AND room to grow! When he get gets those sprinklers in make sure you have a section for the garden area. I'd have hard time growing anything without a automatic watering system for the veggies! I wish you lived closer so I could give you some plant starts too. Again, congrats!
