Hi friends! Today I am sharing our upcoming adventure with you. We are relocating to Black Forest/Colorado Springs Colorado. I thought I would begin documenting this adventure by sharing a few photos of our Colorado home with you. We have big plans of transforming this home and making it ours, from the outside to the inside and in-between. The hubby and I plan on doing as much as of the transformation on our own as we can.
The Colorado housing market has been very challenging for us and home prices are higher in Colorado than in Texas. On our recent housing hunting trip the hubby and I each had our wish list and then reality set in. Reality is a great way of keeping us all in check. On this house hunting trip reality made us stretch our imaginations and dollars.
The bones of this house are virtually without flaw. This is a one owner home and these folks have taken excellent care of their home and property so we feel blessed to have found it. Their decorating style is much different than ours and this is where our creativity, carpentry skills and decorating skills will be put to good use.
Welcome to the living room of our Colorado home. We see so much potential; hardwood floors, fireplace makeover, modern white trim, drapes, rugs, paint, furniture. I am envisioning a mix of traditional, and modern cozy cottage style. We hope to also incorporate some elements of our Texas home style too.
Lots of sunshine pours into the dining room, so we are looking forward to adding trim, board and batten to these dining room walls, re-painting, changing out the chandelier and drapes and replacing the carpet with hardwoods. My hubby is a former Master Carpenter so he has the know how. It is going to be work, but it’s going to be such a worthwhile project and one that I hope we will sit back and enjoy as the years roll on. Do you see a backache coming on…
Can’t wait to transform this kitchen. So many ideas spinning in our heads right now, money will definitely be a factor as to how much we can do. Maybe it will be just be a little bit at a time.
Any ideas on how much a kitchen remodel costs?
The home sits on nearly 4 acres of glorious pine trees and just look at what our grands will get to play on! They have their own play house with swing set attached.
Our backyard with a lovely East facing deck, hoping the neighbors or Church friends will join us for a Summer barbecue.
Pines reaching towards the heavens.
