Good news - there will be AFTER photos to share soon! And the walls are no longer Denver Bronco orange/navy, or floor to ceiling dark brown, or even florescent green and blue...or at least they won't be for long.

Yes, the price had been reduced. We're a frugal family and Financial Peace University (FPU) graduates...okay, so we never completed the series...but we did START the series and took away some great principles!

The kitchen. And rose (i.e. pink) colored back splash and walls. Two things at the top of my "to update/paint" list. I don't do pink.

The built-in kitchen desk

From the kitchen, looking in to part of the living room and one of my favorite features - the double-sided fireplace.

The pink utility room and another favorite - the safe room.

The very green half-bath...just off the pink kitchen

The very dark and also green dining room

Floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room. LOVE windows and natural light. Also love that I can watch my boys playing in our super sized backyard from the living room!

The double-sided fireplace from the living room. The two valance light fixtures were among some of the first things to go.

The stairs. Henry and Sam's favorite feature(s).

Henry and Sam's second favorite feature - the Jetta tub. It was only a matter of time before the boys were swimming in place of the bugs.

The Denver Broncos room. Or, what is now Henry's room...after two coats of primer and one coat of Believable Buff paint.

Yes, even the ceilings were Cowboy orange and royal blue.

Our F-R-O-G. Make that our Finished Room Over the Garage...or, better known as the "play room".

The upstairs bath. The former home owners definitely had interesting taste in paint. They painted this bathroom to match their shower curtain.

The cave. Otherwise known as Sam's room, which also required two coats of primer and a dose of Believable Buff.

The spare bedroom...and the butterfly ceiling fan. The butterfly ceiling fans are now at Habitat.

Our backyard and a favorite feature for the entire family. (A riding lawn mower is on the top of Wade's Christmas list.)
