WE'RE ADDING A SECOND STORY TO OUR HOUSE!!
If you would like to see our current layout of our house, as drawn by a 5 year old, here ya go.
|actually I traced this over some actual plans... yes, my drawing skills have not changed since kindergarden... (leave me alone! Drawing is hard!!!)|
During our downstairs remodel, hopefully it will look something like this:
Here's the brand-spanking new upstairs:
One of my best friends back in AZ's dad is an architect for the uber wealthy in Scottsdale (Blochberger Designs, check him out!) and he was kind enough to sit with us and draw up a lay out for our little house. Basically we are building an entire house, square foot for square foot, directly above what we have now. We are still tweaking minor little things, but this is basically it... and Im obsessed.
For those of you who dont know, the Dallas real-estate market is hot right now. As in we-could-double-our-money-if-we-moved-right-now HOT! Chris and I thought about it and even looked at a couple places, but with the housing market causing ALL houses to go up in price, it actually makes more sense for us to stay here in our low mortgage, add on, and enjoy our location here in the "M-Streets" and being across the street from a school (which we LOVE!).
|From last fall but really, look at all this great playground equipment! Plus a whole field to run and run and run!|
AHHHH Im so excited! This is really happening!
