Here are the pictures I promised! Here's our kitchen/dining room/living room/laundry room.
New faucet that Chris installed. (Have I mentioned how incredibly impressed I've been at his handiness?)
Dining room. This is the view from the kitchen. Door goes to outside patio. The living room is on the left and a wall of windows is on the right.
From the kitchen looking into the living room. Front door is down the hall in the top left of the picture. Dining room is on the right of the picture.
Laundry room. Door goes out to garage. On a side note...we found this washer on Craig's List for $25!! The guy said it had a broken pump because it had been leaking. But my handyman husband was able to fix it (without replacing the pump) for less than $30!
There's Scout sneaking in the picture again. (He is the epitome of the phrase "follows me around like a puppy dog." Where I am, he is!)
New fan that Chris installed.
That's all for now! We're still working on getting the guest bedroom and office the way we like it. So I'll post more pictures soon!
