In a Cabin In the Woods

My mom used to sing that little song to us and now I'm using it to describe our NEW HOUSE!!

Back in December we sold our house and then moved into our rental. As of last night we are home owners again.  We purchased a house on SIX acres about 30 minutes from where we are living now.  I don't even really know how to explain this house except lots of wood. Everywhere.  The walls, floors ceilings, doors, covered in wood.  It's pretty much awesome.  

This is the living room from both sides. 

Downstairs bathroom and kitchen. 

Back door that also has the laundry room to the right.  

Dining room and pantry space. 

This is Marley's room. When you walk in the door the room makes an L shape so it's a fairly good sized room.  

This is Mason's room above and below is the upstairs bathroom. Someone apparently tried to paint this wood and didn't do such a good job. It either needs sanded down or a few more coats of paint. We haven't decided what route we're going with it yet. 

This is the master bedroom.  It's the biggest bedroom I have ever had. And it also has the biggest closet I have ever had.  

I was trying to get a picture of the door. Every door in this house is also wooden with fancy little wooden door handles. It's hard to see because it blends it with the wall.  

 Here's the master bedroom ceiling. All the rooms upstairs have vaulted ceilings. The stairway ceiling is so high it's crazy. I tried to take a photo of that too, but with all the wood it was hard to even tell what it was. 

Hallway from the master and back down the stairs. 

These are just small parts of the yard looking out the upstairs windows. 

The rest of the pictures are just of the cleared yard space.  There's lots of woods and even a small creek that runs though the back of the property too. 

So there it is. There's work to be done, but if you know Mike and I, you know we wouldn't buy a house without it having stuff to be done. I think I'm most excited about all brand new appliances and Mike's most excited about the garage and the land.  Just as I did with our old house I will be posting updates on what we've done with the place once we get all moved and settled in.  

Ok, so who's jealous of all the leaves I get to rake? Anyone? =)  I was there for a while today and I already hate the leaves.  They're everywhere!
