So after much work at 10329 Sierra West, our house is coming together quite nicely! Jared, his mom, dad, grandma and myself have spent countless hours getting just the way we had imagined! We are anxious to show it off and are really looking forward to everyone spending Thanksgiving with us. We have just a little project here and there that we are wanting to do but for the most part all we have to do now is move our stuff in. We have moved some stuff over and are now staying the night in the house! It's been quite an adventure for sure! We're so happy that we found this house and the whole process is completed. Surprisingly the closing process was quite easy...the week leading up to closing was another story. BUT it's all over and we are now HOMEOWNERS.
Lets see...I'll try and start from the beginning with all that we have done to the house. I guess i'll walk you through from the outside to the inside! Well if you can remember the outside when we were just looking at the house...it was a bit OVERGROWN to say the least. It was so bad that you could barely see the beautiful house behind all the bushes. So needless to say...our yard received a military cut. Everything pretty much got buzzed! Jared went to the dump yesterday and what fit on the trailer...was......over 1300 pounds...YUP that is just shrubs and tree limbs..and there is still a pile out on the curb for the garbage truck! Our front yard is so nice now! You can walk between the bushes and the house...like the inspector wanted...Jared has plenty of head room under the tree...and guess what??? We had a light next to the garage! Well I say we did because that got replaced!
As we move to the inside of the house....it got quite the face lift! The entry way received an updated and GORGEOUS fixture the hallway to the spare bedrooms received a new fixture. The "Jimmy Buffett" room is now a beautiful shade a yellow....a new bed...new comforter..and new pictures! I can't wait to get the furniture in there! The office...right across the hall...is our office! Not just any office though...it's an office fit for 2 Aggie grads! It will eventually have chair rail..and below the chair rail is a beautiful shade of maroon! Yes maroon! It's absolutely gorgeous! The other guest room stayed the same color (Khaki) but is completely furnished with all the same stuff from the duplex! The Living room didn't really change all that much except for our new ceiling fan! It's so nice and puts off some good air! we just added our furniture and they feel right at home! The kitchen made quite a transformation! We are very proud of our kitchen and the time spent here! We have three new fixtures in it, a microwave, and CLEAN appliances! IT looks so GOOD!! I can't wait for you to see the pictures! THe master bedroom...I just LOVE! It's perfect! Three walls are khaki and the remaining wall is chocolate brown! It looks so good. I was a little nervous about it but it turned out so wonderful! Even our laundry room changed! It was a hideous shade of hunter green- DARK- UGLY! But now it's what i like to call mint chocolate chip ice cream- it really looks like that shade of ice cream minus the chocolate! It goes so well with our banana split shade in the guest room! It's like Baskin Robins in the Lowe household! MMMM!!
Even the backyard got some TLC! Thanks to Grandma Helen, we now have a flower garden! The overgrown only separated by metal is now full of flowers, plants, and monkey grass looking plant! It looks so good! Ok here are some pictures! we can't wait to have everyone over!
We've come a long way! And i didn't even mention everything!

- A photo is a freezed moment in time that can bring back an emotion, a smell, an age, a place that is meaningful to you and most important family memories. I hope to capture those memories! I have just dived into the world of photography and am LOVING it! Enjoy the pics!
