Honey, I'm home [GARAGE edition]

So we have now officially been in this house for two months.  It looks like we live in it.  Minus the fact that the bedroom still holds a few boxes in it.. details, details, come on people. Anyway this weekend was a grand one because I have my first "room" to reveal to you all lovely people!


The garage.

First lets take a look at the "garage" we left in Kansas.. aka the outdoor closet... lovely, ain't it?

To the women having a great garage is not a big deal (minus the fact I get a whole parking lot indoors to myself!!!), but to the men it may be more of a big deal.  Read.. to Rob it is a big deal.  Anywho... I wish I would have taken a before picture so you guys could see what we were working with.  We had 6 tubs (4 decorations, 2 winter clothing) to mark appropriately, add to and lift to the attic.  A giant pile of Army gear to chuck (literally in some cases) into the attic.  Two pieces of unusable furniture.. one was dismantled to be recycled and the other fixed to be usable.  Three shelving systems of tools, drink cups, garage towels and just about everything else to sort through.  Tons and tons of boxes and packing paper to recycle.  And one super nasty pile of dirt to be swept up.  But the end result? It is fabulous.


Rob has himself a real live man cave.


I have a fabulous parking spot I can pull right in. (And a little corner for my own stuff too!  My husband is so kind..)
My itty bitty corner of stuff. :)
And now we both feel very very accomplished.

So there you have it you all.. the first look into our home.

Be on the lookout for the bathrooms, the laundry room, the guest bedroom, the office, the kitchen, the dining room, the living room and the master bedroom sometime in the future.



Oh and later this week there is an extra special post coming your way.

Always,
Amanda

  2. I love when I am able to park in the garage! Although ours doesn't have that much space, my husband has a TON of tools and quite the man cave going in the garage ;) thanks for sharing!

  3. Such a cute house!

    My husband loves his garage. Seriously, I think he cleans it more than he cleans any other room in the house. haha

  4. So awesome! We always make sure we can park in our garage also. It's kind of a big deal when we never had a garage growing up!! :)

  5. I can't get over how cute your house is. Having a garage is awesome. Especially an attached garage.

  6. Loooove me a garage (that I can pull into). I made Steve clean ours before he left. I had cleaned it myself at one point, but then the Army Gear That Cannot Be Contained made its way back out and I could no longer park in there. It is gorgeous now. Enjoy your personal parking spot! Can't wait to see more of your house! :)
