The Full Tour – Part Three – Interior Continued

If you’re just joining us for the first time, how about you start at the beginning?

You Can Start Part One of the Tour Here. Each one will lead you to the next!

 

Alright, now that you’re here, we’re going to jump right in.

We last left you in the kitchen. Now, come on in and see the dining room:

 

Standing in the kitchen looking into the dining room. Oh cool, look to the right in the photo. There's no cover on that light switch! nice.

 

On the other side of the dining room looking toward the kitchen. I have to say that I absolutely hated this floor.

 

This was the fan in the dining room. Good condition, but not exactly our style...

 

For some reason I was very excited to have a fan remote control! What can I say? I've been deprived of cool technology most of my life... The funny thing is that it didn't have batteries in it, and we never put batteries in, so we never even used it! haha!

 

Now we’re going to move on into the hallway/stairway area.

 

Standing here, the dining room is to the left and behind. Overall view of the hall/stairway. That's the backdoor on the left.

 

Closer up of the first few steps. There is actually laminate flooring on the front and tops of the stairs. I don't know what that box thing is made of ply wood. Also I don't know why the drywall is missing on the left "wall" of the stairs.

 

"Closet" space under the stairs. No door, though.

 

This is underneath the stairs, could make a good storage space later.

 

This is what you see when you're deep inside the closet and you look to the right.

 

drywall missing, to name one.

 

Looking up the stairwell from the bottom of the stairs, there is a cool outlook window at the top which brings in some much needed light.

 

Now we're going to walk you up the stairs. Lovely carpet isn't it? Was this color popular in the 80s, or when? I can't figure it out. You can't really tell in these pics, but it was definitely an aqua color.

 

And the next level also boasts this lovely carpet.

 

Now, that's leading up to the master bedroom, which you'll have to wait until tomorrow for!

 

Back at the bottom of the stairs, this is the first bedroom you'd run into after walking out of the dining room.

 

That's the closet door. Very old. Seems to be original to the house.

 

Plantation shutters. Cool. View of the back deck. Cool. Ugly jacuzzi. Not cool.

 

Standing near the closet, looking back to the hallway. That door is also very old, looks original to the house. As you can see this room is missing doorframe and floor moulding. Also, there is a penciled image of a kid surfing on the wall on the right.

 

When you exit the first bedroom and look to the left, this is what you see. The bathroom. *Note: same floors as dining room. EEK!

 

shower is to the right as you enter. There is a cool built in cabinet which was a huge perk for this bathroom.

 

knob missing. You either get to take a bath or a shower, not both.

 

shower head... functional...

 

the rusty curtain rod, and the shower light.

 

Oh, here's a better overall picture of the built in cabinet.

 

Vanity and toilet area. That thing above the toilet is a secret messaging hole from the living room heater to the bathroom. The purpose of that is so that everyone in the living room can hear you when you're peeing... haha. Don't know why the toilet seat is up. I don't like that very much.

 

Don't know why, but this is the ceiling by the door as you enter the bathroom. Those are the pipes of the shower and stuff from the master bathroom above. Bank owners patched that before we closed escrow, and painted it a color that almost matched the original paint color! haha!

 

This is a small room that is halfway up the stairs. Actually it's about 3 steps up. Yellow room with cool baseball fan. Wanescotting is a very good brownie point for this house.

 

Another view of this room. Has good views looking out the window and lots of natural light.

 

This is what you see when you look out the side window. The upper part of the deck that's on the side of the house, which you'll see during a later post..

 

Looking out this window is the backyard and views. Sorry that we didn't open the shutters more when taking these pics. Just didn't think about it at the time.

 

Angled view out the backyard.

 

And with that, we’re going to put this tour to a halt and kick you out and invite you back tomorrow!

I know that was a lot to handle, we hope you enjoyed looking at this disaster of a house. I know there are some good things about the house, but there sure are a lot of issues, isn’t there? I wonder what you would do to change this house so far?

I can’t wait until we get to show you what we really did to transform and simply fix this place up.

Come back tomorrow and we’ll show you the upstairs in our master suite.

  1. I hope you got a really good deal for the shape it was in, but I can also definitely see the potential!
    It looks like it had really pretty views!

  2. When I saw that our house had a linen closet I nearly jumped for joy. Where else are you supposed to store your sheets/towels/random boxes of makeup you can’t seem to part with? Enjoy that bathroom storage, lady!

    Two things.
    First, I’m dying over those plantation shutters. They add so much character!!! I can’t wait to see how all of this turns out in the end! Looks like tons of work.
    And second, I’ve seen your comments on my blog, but will get back to you this weekend when I have access to my computer. :) Thanks for following!

  4. Malissa says:

    Haha, I put in a fan remote in our bedroom and I love it! Fans aren’t the most attractive lighting choice but when it is 100 plus outside, a fan is necessary.

  5. Lisha says:

    Thank you to Malissa, Meagan, Shannon, and Janet for the comment love!

    to answer the comments:

    Janet: the house has good and bad views. some of the neighbors have junk in their yards. but there are mountains and trees around that you can see and it kind of has a country feel, but it’s only about 2 minutes from local stores and only 5 minutes from the mall.

    Shannon: yep, the linen closet helped a lot because we got a lot of towels from people when we got married. I just recently gave half of our towels away to family members who needed them more. The cabinet is also good for all the other bathroom stuff like shampoos, soaps, bath salts, cleaning supplies, etc.

    Meagan: I really liked the shutters too. It really did add a lot of character. One of the few things that was good about this house. Hope you’re having a good week (wherever you are).

    Malissa: Yep, it gets over 100 degrees here and a fan is definitely necessary. We had them in all the rooms and then we replaced all of them with better looking ones. You’ll see that later.

  6. Can’t wait to see how you tackle all these challenges – a hydro pole sticking out of the house?! Love to see an unloved home getting it’s dues….

    You guys have some serious vision. My husband and I are looking at houses and trying to decide between a cheap fixer-upper and a more expensive move-in ready house. I’m hoping your blog will give us the courage to go with the fixer-upper!

      It is a ton of work, and I have to say it was hard to live in a construction zone for about 2 years, but it is also very fun, rewarding, and makes you proud that you made your home the way it is yourself :)

  8. Wow, wonderful blog layout! How long have you been blogging for? you made blogging look easy. The overall glance of your site is great, let alone the content material!

    I’ve been browsing online greater than three hours nowadays, but I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It’s lovely worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made excellent content material as you probably did, the internet will probably be much more helpful than ever before.
