We bought a home! I know that I have been talking about it for a bit now but I’ve finally putting together a blog post about our new place. As I sorted through these “before” photos I found myself thinking how weird it was to see our house naked.
Since we bought our home, we’ve done a lot of painting and we’ve also done something about our floors (post coming soon on that change). We still have a bit to go. I am not done with painting the main floor but thanks to my father in law, a huge chunk is done. We also want to buy some new furniture for the main floor because our old pieces seem a bit small for the space. Let me take you on a tour of our home! 🙂
The first photo above shows the space as you walk in. Pretty sweet open floor plan with LOTS and LOTS of natural light. That was such a HUGE must have in my home buying “wants” list.
Below: our kitchen. I am not going to lie, this was another huge selling feature of the house. I saw this kitchen and thought to myself, “Okay I’m sold. This house is it!” As you know I LOVE cooking 😉 and to have a space like this to do it and shoot video? Wow!
Below, the view from the kitchen into the main living space. I had to close the blinds to take this photo because so much light was coming in that it was hard to get the kitchen and living space in the pic.

Below: I LOVE that fireplace! It also heats the space pretty well which is so much better than our last apartment. We had a gas fireplace that was sealed off so all the heat went up and out through the chimney shoot. Really?
Below: Now we’re upstairs. This is the hallway facing to the office, guest room, guest bath and laundry.

I am SO in love with our new home. I love that it is ours, I love that it is new, I love that it is near so many fun things, I love the kitchen, I love that Adam has a space to work on the cars, I love that our cars have a garage, I love the neighborhood, I just plain LOVE IT!
This is also the part where I want to give the BIGGEST shout out to our real estate team: iHOMESCOLORADO.com. Isaac was our agent and he was just amazing to work with. He was so passionate about real estate that we knew we had to go with him and the team. I mean you just ask him about real estate and he lights up – that is the kind of person you want to work with because you know you are in good hands. He also made things so easy, explained in detail everything we were signing, was always available to answer any questions or concerns, and was very strategic about how he submitted our offer. Even in this crazy Colorado market our offer was accepted and we closed on time!
Later I accepted a position working with them as their Director of Innovation. I just had to be part of this innovative company and tell all of Denver about these amazing guys and gals!
