When I walked through the first time I had tears in my eyes. It feels like I've waited forever for this. And then when we actually "came home" after closing I couldn't help but feel so blessed to be here. I cant even describe what I've felt this entire week when coming "home" after going to the grocery store or going to bed at night in our own "home". Its all so new- the house and the fact that i have my own kitchen to set up my own way, and every corner of the house is open for us to fill with our own stuff, and the walls are blank pages for us to decide what we want to do with them. Its a crazy feeling and I hope it never goes away (but I know it will eventually). We are blessed to be here as I know building a brand new home is not the "norm" for medical student families. We have my parents to thank for letting us barge in and take over their home for the last 2 years so that we could save money for this purchase, and of course the Air Force.
The first thing we did when we got home from closing was take pics of the house, so without further ado here it is! (Keep in mind there are a few pieces of tape where they needed to fix a few things)
This is what you see when you walk in the front door. I love the tall ceiling that opens up to the loft upstairs. On the right are double doors to the study, and on the left stairs to the loft.
Further down on the right are doors to the coat closet, and then it opens to the kitchen also on the right. Straight back is the sunroom.
On the left (where the light is on) is another small hallway with the half bathroom, a storage closet and then a door to the garage.

And now the upstairs:
On the left is the Master Bedroom and the laundry room.
On the right are the 2 girls bedrooms and bathroom.

|Through the bathroom is the Master Closet, which feels like it could be another room.|
One of my favorite things about this house.
I might post some pics of the girls rooms when they are decorated a bit more. I love the big tub in the laundry room to do hand washing or soaking, and I love the taller ceilings. When I was looking through these I noticed there aren't any pics of the closets which would probably bore you but its another thing I LOVE about the house. There is SO much storage! In addition to the giant master closet, the coat closet, and under the stairs storage closet, the Kitchen has a nice size pantry AND a big broom closet that fits a whole lot more than brooms, and the kids bathroom has a great linen closet! (obviously both bedrooms have closets too)
