The House

We are officially under contract for a home in Utah.
I never thought I'd see the day that my husband would move to Utah!

I hope he survives.

Anyway, here is the house!


Porch/Front door:
(I've never had a covered area by my front door so I'm pretty excited about the whole "stay dry when it's raining" thing)

After entering the door, look to the left and you see
this sunken living room
and tiny little dining room
(and I do mean tiny)

Straight ahead is the family room and stairway to the basement
to the right on the other side of those french doors are the bedrooms

Family room:
Taken just inside the french doors you just saw

Family room/kitchen

Stairway to basement with integrated baby gate
Ah, I'm all set to babysit!

The view of the entry from the tiny dining room

The laundry room!
It's pretty darn big and has a sink and space for hanging things up.
I'm so happy.

Bedroom #1:

Bedroom #2:
Can you tell a difference? Nope, they are the same
the paint is even the same because they painted since taking these pictures.

Hallway bathroom
Carter will have to share with guests.
I'm a little frightened.

Not huge but I don't spend that much time in the bedroom anyway

Master bath:
My own sink makes me happy

huge space

Basement view if standing by the stairs:
I like the built-ins and the desk area

Interesting room off of the main basement room...
It's officially a bedroom but has a sink in the corner and mirrors
(Apparently they had a teenage girl in here)
For us, it could be an office maybe...

Lots of storage
and a second laundry room

Separate basement apartment:
small but very functional
2 bedrooms

Covered back porch

Nice yard with fruit trees
(apple, cherry and walnut)
a garden spot
and a shed

Two neighbors have chickens so I'm hoping for some eggs

A big ol' swingset
All we need to add are the baby seats for the grandkids...

And, hopefully, it will be ours in about 30 days!


  1. OH MY GOSH! IT'S AMAAAZING! That laundry room is the stuff dreams are made of, and the basement is sooo nice, I can't believe you'll have your own space down there in addition to the apartment. Just crazy. I love your covered front and back too, that will be so nice in the winter. I also love the big window you can see to the left of the front door. it's awesome man! I'm so excited for you!

  2. Debbie...where is this? How soon will you guys be moving here? I'm so excited to have you in Utah, it's been so long since we've seen you but I've been following your blog for years!! Good luck with the house!

  3. Wow it's beautiful and so spacious, everything you need, I'm jealous your living so close to family. I'm going to have to come see everyone!!

  4. Hey Monica!
    We will be moving this summer...probably July but that's still in the air a little bit. It's in American Fork :-)
