Empty House Tour – Welcome to Our New Home!

Y’all, it’s here. We’ve officially been in our home for about two weeks weeks. And I’m finally sharing our empty house tour! The morning before we closed, we did our final walk-through. And I kicked everyone out of the house to video a very short, quick little seven minute video of the entire house top to bottom. 😂

I knew it would be my only opportunity to capture it completely empty. (Seriously, our car trunk and back seat was loaded with clothes!) And I’m so glad I took the time because getting it photo-ready again is going to take some tiiiiime, y’all. #livinglavidaboxes My only regret was not taking as many photos! But near the end of that ten minutes, I was starting to feel guilty about my family sitting around outside for me, so I tried to hurry it up!

So while I did not get a chance to photograph every space, I tried to hit a few of the main areas: the great room, the kitchen, the screened in porch. And of course I snapped a quick shot of our master bathroom tile because I’m obsessed. If you want to see more stills, check out my we’re building a house tour which captured a few more shots. 

 

Empty House Tour

Alright y’all, here it is: our empty house tour.  Welcome to our new home!

When you walk in the front door, a staircase to the second floor is to your right. To your left is our dining room. Take a few steps forward and this is your view.

One of the things that sold us on this floor plan was the two story great room. I also love all of the windows on the back of the house. As someone who takes a lot of photos, natural light was something on my must-have list!

Taking one more step forward, you get a better view of the kitchen. To the right of the kitchen, there is a breakfast room with a large window.

In this next shot, I’m standing in the corner of the breakfast room near the door to the porch. We opted for classic white cabinets with a navy blue center island. The backsplash is a slightly more creamy white. I love the crackled detail of the tiles!

Now if you turned directly around, you’d see the door to the screened in porch, which is on the left hand side of the fireplace.

Stepping out into this screened in porch is one of my favorites. Many of the home models we looked at had painted all of the beams a dark brown. But y’all, I am so glad we went with white! It really adds so much light to the space, especially since it’s surrounded by trees!

If you walk back in through the door and head to your left, you’d eventually run into our master bedroom. The room itself is pretty basic, especially since it’s undecorated. But here is a peek at our master bathroom!

Aaron fought me hard on these tiles. He wanted nothing to do with the pattern! But we ended up using a couple versions of it in the house, and I love it!

Unfortunately, I somehow I completely skipped over filming the second master suite. I really was trying to hustle through and just walked right by it. But it is located directly underneath the first floor master and follows the same foot print. The master bathroom has different tile selections, so I will try to snap photo of that to give you a glimpse soon!
