We put our house on the market… Then we took it off. Then we decided to stay here for awhile. Then we looked at homes. Then we wanted to buy a home. Then we changed our minds. Are we crazy? Most definitely.
For now we truly have decided to stay here a bit longer and build our savings. It would be great to get the equity out of our house but then what’s next? Homes are much more expensive than when we originally bought (back in 2011 when it was at the bottom here in Phoenix) so it makes it a lot harder from an investment standpoint to bite the bullet and pay a LOT more. For now the plan is to save and then maybe rent this little guy out. Unless something perfect comes along… Ugh so indecisive.
Anyway I had Caleb (my brother and awesome wedding photographer) come to snap some pics for MLS. Here are a few rooms you haven’t seen that I’m not too crazy about. They just seem unfinished and I feel like my style is a bit different now, but it is what it is.
First up is the laundry room. I LOVE doing laundry. Weird right? Who loves doing laundry? Yep, the weirdo over here. Actually I think I like it so much because of the smell. You know there is nothing better than sweaty clothes and stinky socks. Haha not! No but really the smell of clothes after washing is simply the best. I hang dry (more like lay clothes all over the house) most of my stuff so it makes the house smell amaze-balls. I love Target’s Up & Up brand! Anyway one day I want to go all out in here and really make it cute. Maybe paint the door in chalkboard paint? Add some art/ functional laundry stuff?
Next up is our guest bath. I kind of did this in a hurry before guests were coming years ago andddd it has always felt like a kids bathroom (no we don’t have any). It’s also on the list to get a re-do one day! Hopefully soon…
Here is our guest bedroom. Most of the furniture was handed down when we first got married so I sorta just worked with what I had. The bedrooms are so tiny in this house that I’m cool with this room for now. I do realize the vanity looks pretty silly in there but it was mine as a little girl and I want to hold onto it in case I can pass it down one day. Oh and those crusty flowers were from Trav when we just started dating. I want them forever ❤
Here is our second bedroom. Yeah we don’t ever use it… but I love the chalkboard closet. 🙂
Next up, the office! I feel pretty content with this room. It opens up to the living/family room which is great because I never feel secluded or closed off. I can have the TV on or music plying while I’m getting work done in here.
I know I’ve shown pictures of the kitchen but I’ve added a few things and it looks a little different in the evening.
Last up is the backyard. We have a corner house and have a pretty decent size lot. My dad designed the yard and did pavers for us and a built in BBQ. It was getting dark so this is the only good photo we got, but one day I’ll have to do a full reveal. It was in pretty rough shape before.
So thats about it! All the “behind the scenes” of the house. Anyone else out there indecisive about there home decisions?!
