The bar! And some Slurm on top of it! Also, token duck to hopefully attract a retriever to my house for keepsies.

RBark, that's gorgeous! I love it!

Here's my house, in Northern Virginia (about 15 miles outside DC).

Front living room (the windows on the left side of the house)

Through the door way into the dining room

Around the corner into the "this is why we were able to afford our house" kitchen (that will be remodeled in the *hopefully* near future...gahhh it's so ugly)

And through the kitchen into the family room (where we spend most of our time):

We do have a fully finished basement with a laundry room, storage, workshop, and additional family room space, but most of the time it looks like this (with all the furniture pushed against the walls because the weather sucks outside and I want to practice agility):

Finally, we have a this-will-be-the-death-of-me yard that is impossible to do anything with unless I want to spend at least $10k. But it now has a dog walk that I found on Craiglist. Hooray for a good use for my loooooong narrow terraced yard!

Oh, and the deck. I heart the deck. Rocking chairs, beer in hand...perfect way to relax after a long work week.

This is the place I call home. I will post better pictures of the outside and some of the inside tonight or tomorrow because we are having new furniture delivered today! I'm so excited!

Don't fear tomorrow.

No photos of my home, currently. It's a two-bedroom apartment in kind of a ghetto part of Ashtabula, Ohio.

Mexico is still, in part, home to me. I miss its beauty.

Ha! I live in a house approximately the size of a birdhouse and it is full of clutter and pet hair. I ain't posting pictures after that.

RD, I'm so jealous.

LOL We're fixing up a trashed rental that we bought, it's approximately one giant room with crooked doors.

This is it the day we bought it.

I don't have a lot of updated photos but we:
  • planted four fruit trees some flowering plants
  • re-did (read: are re-doing) the grass
  • cleaned the front cement with plans of painting it
  • tore up the floors
  • put down new floors
  • painted
  • tore out the entire kitchen
  • put in a new kitchen (read: in the process)
  • need more cabinets & backsplash & oven/fridge
  • added blinds & screens
  • fixed the fence
  • plan to re-do the fence
  • regularly battling bugs and weeds
  • plan to re-do the front and back doors
  • need to re-tile the bathroom
  • need to replace the toilet & sink
  • would like to pull out the tub/shower shell and put in something new
  • plan to add barn doors to the bedroom closets
  • and well.. that might be all.

By then I think we'll just rent it out and buy another house.

We re-did our home in Vegas though it was in better shape and we didn't do as much. It's a rental at this time now as well, we may sell it eventually or we may keep it as an income property.

Here are a few photos:


We put in new carpet upstairs, painted, re-did window treatments, re-did the kitchen, and did a lot to the yard.

Mostly I miss this faucet. LOL

And we stripped the pool and added this, we miss the pool.

It appears I mostly have up-close photos from the projects and not a lot of scene shots without my dogs as the main subjects.
