Our First Place!

We've been busy moving and painting and cleaning and trimming lol!

Thank God for dollies and hand trucks!!!

We finally bit the bullet and bought our first home. ....We'd like to move out of Las Vegas someday but for now this is home sweet home :0)
These are some pics off the listing, it needs some work but we have a lot of plans for it :0)

The home has a 2 car garage but it's as big as a 3 car because of extra space in the back of it, so Sher is very excited since this will be his new shop space!
(from which I will get plenty of goodies made, woohoo!)
These uglyyy and dusty curtains have already come down - and with a new coat of paint called "popcorn" the living space already looks and feels better and more like our own.
..we'll post those pics soon...
The kitchen is actually bigger than it looks here, it seems as if the previous owners never even used it ! LOL
I have great dreams for this space...Sher will be making me new cabinets and we want to change the flooring also.
I can't wait for it to become a French Country dream :0)
One of the biggest reasons we love this house is the yard...in Las Vegas having a backyard is almost non existent so we were so excited when we saw this BIG one!
The spa needs work and the patio is nice and huge, can't wait to have bbq's out here!
The yard needs a lot of work -but it also has a lot of potential...
We've already trimmed up some of the trees and we'd like to have a pool back here someday and some GRASS!!
So there it is, as I write it already looks better than these pics so I'll have to take some new ones to show you :0)
Inside Sher wants to make mahogany doors throughout and eventually hard wood floors for most of the space, the bathrooms and kitchen will probably get something other than wood though.
I've gotta get going now, I have tons of trim to paint :0)
