Little House in the Big Woods

I've had many request for a visual update on our new residence. This is actually a home that Devon built for a family about 10 years ago - right next door to our home that burned down in 2000 ( we had moved out 2 weeks earlier). It's nice to be back in the old neighborhood - so serene and quiet. This home had been vacant for a year while for sale (darn economy) but the owners quickly agreed to rent it to us for a while and try to sell again next summer. We have a little under 2 acres -- yes the John Deere has been at work! The yard is is pretty bad shape between just being vacant and the nasty winter here last season. But alas, the rains will come and the green will appear!
We've been lucky so far -- only a couple of days of rain this month - highly unusual for Seattle. Several grey days but not too bad. And when the sun comes out -- wow, it's gorgeous.

Our kids would have LOVED this yard when they were young! A play set and a playhouse, plus a big storage shed for all of Devon's construction tools/machinery and a few of his toys.
Around here we call it "The Whitehouse" it was always the white house next door to us when we lived here years ago. The interior is just about as white as the exterior -white walls, trim, doors, cabinets, tile, carpet - even white lighting fixtures. I'd love to put some color on these stark walls and liven it up a little. I am definately putting up ALL of my pictures!
