Home Photos – Installment #4, the Family Room

April 28, 2008 at 9:52 am (Home furnishings) ()

As you go down the stairs to the family room, there are two doors on your left. The first is the laundry room. Use your imagination. The second door is the bathroom. This is what the bathroom looks like 50% of the time….

And this is what the bathroom looks like the other 50% of the time…

I made the mistake of purchasing bath mats that didn’t have a rubber sticky back, and the dogs get vicious and the placement is toast. Oh well.

This is a view of the living room area from near the stairs….

And then if I walk over to the window, here we are looking at the couch….

Very nice, eh? Note that I didn’t bother to straighten cushions or fold blankets. If I did that, you would doubt that room was really mine! The door behind the couch leads to the storage area. It’s about 3.5 feet tall and the entire middle level – kitchen, dinette and living room. Maybe one day you’ll see a picture of all the boxes I have stored under there. It’s like kindling.

Ok, and here is Tom’s new pride and joy, his Precious. He’s borders on obnoxiously proud of it…..

I don’t know the dimensions off hand, but it is pretty cool, and big. He sprung for the automated kind, so it goes up and down by remote. We got the projector attached to the ceiling and then snaked all the wires through the walls. He’s also purchased two more speakers so we have 7.1 surround sound, and the first time we were watching it, a mosquito buzzed by and we flinched. That’s pretty slick. I guess if you’re going to be housebound for six months of the year, there are worse ways to occupy yourself.

Here is a picture of our new coffee table….

The side table by my chair matches, as does this new decorative table….

And that’s the house. I think we’re getting there. It’s definitely feeling homey, but you know Tom – he’s in project mode to get stuff done. He found a used garage door opener, so this week he’s going to put that in for his Chevelle. We got the granite and back-splash in, so I’ll have to get pictures of that and update you. It’s coming together!
