The tour.

Pictures pictures pictures!! Let me show you our house!

This is the front on a snowy South Dakota day:

This is just inside the front door looking to the right into the living room and dining room:

Our beautiful plum accent wall in the living room:

And finally the corner and window of the living room:

Looking from the dining room into the kitchen:

And another view of the kitchen from the other direction (looking toward the dining/living room area):

Looking from the kitchen into the great room:

And from the great room back toward the front door – you can get a sense of how open the upstairs is!

The door in the middle of the picture above is just a coat closet. I’ll spare you. But to the right just around that corner is this little half bath:

The view from the upper deck out back:

And this is straight down from the deck. It’s hard to tell now because of the snow, but there’s a pre-built fenced-in garden area!

Now on to the downstairs. This is just to the left of the front door when you walk in. And yes, we’re drying some of our rugs on the railing…

The master bedroom:

And the master bedroom accent wall:

The master bathroom:. You can see the walk-in closet in the mirror. Just opposite the mirror, but gracefully not shown, is a little toilet/shower room.

Now back out into the hallway. The storage room and laundry are just to the right of the bottom of the stairs, or just outside the master bedroom doorway.

Ok, now down the hallway:

This is the first bedroom, which we are clearly using as an office right now. You’ll notice some white on the wall… we had some refinishing done in the house when we fixed the plumbing and we just haven’t painted this or the other bedroom yet. We’ll figure out what we want in these rooms eventually….

The two bedrooms have another full bathroom in between them. Again, I’ll let you imagine the small toilet/shower room past that dark doorway.

And the second bedroom/guest room. Again, ignore the white unpainted splotches of finish work… we’ll get to it. I promise. As well as putting an actual mattress on the bed….

Finally, I’ll let you see the back of the house too!
