House Pictures

Hello all! I thought I'd give you a quick house update. I'm scheduled to close on the house March 1. I'm also scheduled to move March 1. Aaron and Anna are going to drive all my earthly belongings down from the camp on the day I close. Yay!!!

Remember how I posted a few weeks ago about how scared I was? There is still part of me that is scared, but I'm getting very excited to get into my home and make it my own. I'm getting excited to see what kind of ministry my new home will be used for. I'm getting excited to start my new job and get settled in. Can you see the theme?

God is good!

So here are some pictures of the inside of the house. We didn't take one of the outside, but it's brick and cute. I'll be taking more pictures as I make changes and I'll be more than happy to share with you along the way.

I really want to tell you what I have planned for each room, but them the post would be really, really long. I'll just have to post as the changes are made. Hope you can see the potential that I see.

This first picture is the spare room. So when you come to visit me, this is where you will stay!

This will be my bedroom.

Here is a shot of the front room/living room. I'm going to use this space for my piano, bookshelves, etc. The living room furniture and TV will be at the back of the house.

Here is the teeny, tiny bathroom. Lots is going to be done in this room.

Kitchen shot #1. Those cupboard doors you are looking at, go waaaaaay back.

This shot is a little dark, but you can see the addition on the back of the house from the kitchen.

Here's a shot of it from the other side.

This is the family room addition. I'll be using the part you see here as the dining room.

This side will be the living area. One of the first projects is taking out the wood burning stove. Can't use it with my asthma and it would need some adjustments to be up to code. So out it goes.

I'm very excited about this room. I see it as a neat asset to be used for ministry and having people in my home.

Thanks for taking the tour. When can you come for a visit?

Yay! Love the house tour! Thanks for sharing. I think that large room addition would be great for so many things. Lots of room for workout videos :-) and parties and big projects that need lots of space. Very excellent set up & I can't wait to see it in person!

Congrats, Erin! It looks wonderful. You have a ton of space for having people over. Show us pictures once you get some things up on the walls and your furniture in.:) God is good!

How fun! Let's see...we'll be in Creston for the Fourth of July, Balloon Days, birthdays, Christmas...and as soon as Grandpa Crigger gets the playhouse in the backyard finished! Maybe I can drop the kids off there and swing over for a visit someday!

Very nice!!! Love the wood stove. I have many memories of sitting in front of the fire as a kid. Such warm memories :D I'm sure you'll enjoy your stove, as well as all the other lovely features about your house.
