Here You Go

Here you go.  This is our new house.  It will be home when we get our stuff.

 The Kitchen is right as you walk in

This is the view from the dining room looking back towards the front door and kitchen.

Dining Room

Looking down into the Living Room.  (Nice glass tops on the tables...just a matter of time)

I love the nice tall french doors onto the patio.

Notice the TV?  It is a loaner until ours gets here.  We have been watching WAY too much TV lately.

We have wood ceilings.  So interesting!

This is the half bath.  Such a luxury!

Jackson's room, which might be turning into both boys room!

Um, there are sliding glass doors in there.  Makes me a little nervous, but I just got some dowels that fit down in there.  He has his own balcony.  Thinking of putting the pirate sandbox out there.  Could be neat, or it could be a disaster!

Jackson's bathroom.  Such a luxury!

The hall between the boys rooms.  Laundry room is on the left.  Laundry room is a luxury too.  I won't miss doing laundry in the basement!

Miller's room.

His crib doesn't quite fit in there with all the gigantic furniture.

The stairs going to our room.

Our bedroom.  We have a balcony too!  Our room is beyond gigantic.

The ceilings are really neat.

The other side of our massive bedroom.  The dresser looks small -and it is like a 6 foot long dresser.

Looking into the master bath.

Master bath

Both ends have these odd alcoves.  Not sure what they are intended for, but for now....

Water closet.  Luxury!

Walk in closet.  Woot-Woot!

There are so many things about this house that I love.  The porches and balconies, the space, the dock we have in our backyard.  It is new, it is in the Bahamas, we have a whirlpool tub (shhh, don't tell the boys),and we can walk to Jackson's new school.
However, there are a few things that I am going to have to learn to live with.  Numero Uno is that we don't have a dishwasher?  Who builds a new house that doesn't have a dishwasher?  A family that thinks they are going to downsize and have a housekeeper, then rents it instead of living in it. That's who!  Hopefully we will be able to hook up a portable dishwasher.  I need a dishwasher, remember?  It's also going to take some adjusting to live in a house that someone else decorated.  I love redecorating, but it is much better when there are stores to shop in!  Oh, and the fact that we have a dock in our backyard.  Miller thinks he is trying out for Fear Factor so it does make it a challenge to be outside.  Not sure how it will be when we have neighbors on the other side.  We tend to make a lot of noise!  I am sure that it will turn out well in the end.

Do you feel like you have seen enough pictures?  Well, I hope so!

Coming up next....Halloween pictures and some of our daily life so far!


  1. When can I come visit??? Your new place looks very inviting! Miss you!

  2. Holly, it looks great and you will make it feel like home in no time! I love that you have pumpkins on your front steps. This must feel like one surreal adventure!

  3. Very nice. Being able to walk J to school will be great. I would be excited about all the "luxuries" of a new house too. Walk in closet, the toilet has its own space, huge bedroom and everything looks so shiny. Looks like paradise to me, well except for the missing dishwasher.

  4. Whoohoo say the cousins from California (who live in 900 sq ft)... we're thinking Christmas 2011 (next year) in the Bahamas sounds fun! Would love to see outside photos too (in your copius spare time). Best and Happy Halloween - Sachi, Kirk, Miya, Romi and Trevor!

  5. Holly - The house looks amazing! That is a huge plus for relocating. Keep the pictures coming. I know you are having a great adventure. Katie
