New House!

Here are pictures of the house before we moved in last week! So different than our DC house in a million ways. There are definitely things we want to change (paint, finish basement, outdoor entertainment, upgrades, etc) but having a move in ready home is so nice. We are so in love with it already. As we go through the decorating/renovating process I will post updates here.

Beautiful! I love the large picture windows! You'll have lots of sunshine inside. I also love the balcony off the master bedroom--how cool is that?! The house looks huge--how many square feet is it? So what do you estimate for your electric bill in the winter? We live in FL and our summer bill runs over $400/month on a 5000 sq.ft. house (no basement of course) and over $250 the rest of the year (with a pool/spa filter running all day). One day we will look into getting a solar system. I love the idea of a chicken coop! I am always teasing my hubby that I'm going to put one up behind the house next door (one of our rentals). Unfortunately, we love more towards the city than out of it so don't really have the room for them to roam. But it would be so cool (even though I am allergic to them)! Looking forward to seeing more pics. Have fun moving in. If your pics are any indication of the current weather conditions, it looks perfect for moving.

@DebraK The house is 3000 sq ft (not including the basement). It really isn't huge but when we do the basement we will have a ton more space to use.

I have no idea what to estimate for the electric bill. It has geothermal heat so hopefully that will save us some money!

Thanks for your comments!

Wow -- what a stunning home! Congrats!

Even though there's so much great stuff going on already in the house, and lots of potential, too, what really made my jaw drop is how much land you have! You could have your own farm if you wanted! :-) We are thinking about getting chickens on our little 1/3 acre, but yours will really have space to move!

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails
with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
Appreciate it!

I am having l nightmares over the Rhino Shield covering on my house, installed just over three years ago. Large bubbles are in the material that I can slit and hand peel the material, right down to the bare red cedar clapboards, which were also primed with an oil primer and finished with latex paint before the Rhino-Shield was applied. The material has a lifetime guarantee, so when I called several persons, including the owner Rhino Shield they all came over quickly.
Rhino Shield said that the material was probably put on when the cedar was damp, and thus would strip everything and apply a new primer and finish coat, let dry, then apply new Rhino Shield, adding that there will be no more work till flashing is....

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any
issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of exclusive content I've either written myself or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement.
Do you know any methods to help prevent content from being stolen? I'd really
appreciate it.
