1,854 Square Feet of Fabulous

So if you've been browsing Kaliwood in the past few weeks, you are probably aware that we've been playing the whole house hunting game. After selling our place, moving to a tiny apartment, and searching every hour for the right one, we finally closed and moved!! The new home feels 100 times bigger than that tiny apartment and is just a breath of fresh air! I absolutely love it. 

It's a hot mess right now as we are still moving in (slowly but surely) and there are boxes everywhere. But I snagged some of these shots from when it was on the market to share! Sorry some aren't the best quality. I'll share more once we get it all decorated!

Tim and I after closing with the new key!

Hello, beautiful!

Living room with big windows!

My favorite part: The entryway with columns.

Dining room and eat-in kitchen area.

Piper's first time in her new fenced-in back yard!

She loves it!

Now if you've been around Kaliwood for about a year or so, you know that Tim tackles renovation projects like they're going out of style. So, in the process of moving to this house, he was saying how he was so happy we could just relax for a while and take our time with reno projects. 

Well, in typical Tim fashion, after HALF of a day in the new home, he already rigged up a way to mount the TV over the fireplace, bought a fire pit and outdoor furniture, AND started building a paver patio in the backyard (you can see the beginnings of it in the pic above). He also already bought a counter top/backsplash to spice up the bathrooms and had a granite guy come quote for the kitchen. I came home and was like SERIOUSLY?? So much for taking our time! But what can I say... Guess I would rather have him be super on top of these things, then procrastinate! 

Stay tuned for some before and after pics as we add some fun touches to this new home of ours! And get pumped for some DIYs I will be tackling!

Have a great day! Linked up with Lauren(SE), PaulinaWhitneyRachel and Lauren!

  1. The home looks lovely, and I think you're quite fortunate to have someone that is so on top of things with renovations. When I buy a home one day it will probably take me yeeeeeears to get it the way I want.

  2. That house is beautiful, and that entryway is amazing!

  3. Your house is gorgeous! That is so fortunate that you have a guy who is willing to go above and beyond. It would be like pulling teeth for WareBear to even pick out paint colors!

  4. Congrats on your new home!!! It's always so fun putting your own personal touches into your home, and filling it up with "your" stuff. I know you will both have such a great time! Lucky your hubby is handy. We are soooo NOT handy people.

    Look forward to seeing your home evolve!!!

  5. LOVE the house! absolutely gorgeous!

  6. Congrats on the new house! It looks great! You are so lucky to have a man that can do all that home stuff. I bet your before and after pictures are going to be awesome! Can't wait to see them! Stopping by from H54F!

  7. Congratulations on your new home! It is beautiful!! Plus, your puppy is adorable :D
