day 351: full house

Dad + Mom are mostly moved into the new house, and they waste no time enjoying their TV + WiFi.

We spent some time filling the living room shelves with books and treasures, at least as a starting point. It will take some time to arrange everything to their liking. They plan to get a large ottoman and maybe put a small recliner where the Christmas tree is right now. and Mom promised to reupholster the furniture after they settle in.

the kitchen island will have some counter stools eventually. otherwise it seems to perform nicely. the giant pantry is probably the best feature.

ikea kitchen cabinets with Samsung quartz countertops and Maytag appliances.

the 48" x 88" kitchen island looking into the dining and sitting areas.

i forgot to lower the dining room chandelier before i flew back to new york.

the fireplace heats the entire public area of this floor. it is a very warm house!


  1. Looks good!

    After laughing at your comment about the dining room chandelier, I looked up and realized that we've been in this house for 10 years and our kitchen light was still tied up too! I fixed that and noticed that I have 15W bulbs in there instead of 60. No wonder it's so dark over here!

  2. love the updates! We also lowered the dinette light this afternoon!
