Theresa and Shawn's New House

Tomorrow the house is officially theirs. At this point they are moving things from the house into the garage. Today Shawn and his friend Don are moving the furniture so tomorrow they can get it in the house and set up where Theresa has it planned out. Theresa will be off tomorrow to help.

What is really spectacular about this place is the piece of property. It is one of the biggest if not the biggest lot in the community and there are open park lands around them except for one side. The view from the back of the house is beautiful and goes on for what seems like forever. The iron fence you see in the back is their back property line and then open parkland from there that goes on and on.

The view to the left in the backyard.

The view to the right. There is a very pretty patio and walkways as well.

The model of this home is the same one my parents lived in so I was not sure how I would feel walking into it the first time. It was a little strange, but this house is different enough that it isn't like my parents completely. Especially the kitchen. This house has cherry wood cabinets which are very nice and it does not have the built-in double ovens. Also they enclosed the top of the cabinets instead of being open. Theresa has plans for new counter tops and things for the kitchen. It will be fun to see it all come together for them.

The caninets have staonless pulls which are nice.

The family room that you see looking out from the kitchen. That's Shawn in the picture.

Shawn and David discussing hwere the Tv and couches are going. Also discussing wiring and hookups.

Looking from the kitchen area into the living room - dining room area and front door. There is also an open office to the left of the front door where Shawn is planning his movie room with flat screen TV and movie theater seating.

The patio in the back of the house. The nice feature of this house is that it has sliders in the master bedroom to the patio as well. I really like that. They have already decided where their spa will be, patio covers and vegetable garden.

The yard already has three watering systems so when they add things they will just have to tap into the existing lines. Very nice addition. I am sure they will be very happy here and it will be wonderful having them as neighbors.

What a wonderful place they have chosen to make their own. It is beautiful. I am sure that TC will have a grand time "redoing" areas and getting all their things arranged in the new space. Shawn's media room sounds to be most sophisticated. We are very happy for them. Hugs, Vaden

Oh my goodness! It is the same layout as Mom and Dad's house. It looks terrific and what a great yard and view.
