Our New Home in Douglass, Kansas

We love the new front porch on this 1916 Bungalow style house. We will be installing a porch swing just as soon as possible.
I love that this house is surrounded on two sides by huge maple trees and sits on a corner lot.

The living room has big picture windows on the front and beautifully refinished hardwood floors.

The beautiful, original fireplace and built in bookcases are at one end of the living room.

This is a large finished room upstairs that we will utilize for a guest room on one end and a craft room on the other end. It will feel very cozy and nice and bright with a dormer window and a window on each end of the room.
David assures me my very large dining room table will fit in this room. Notice the pattern of the hardwood floors. There is also large windows in this room making it nice and bright.
This is the master bedroom. More wonderful windows and hardwood floors! I will have to become very organized with our clothes and storage as this house does not have ample closet space.
The bathroom (yes, we will only have one!) has been completely remodeled and is beautiful! Since this house doesn't have a basement, we will also probably be utilizing this room for our tornado shelter since it is windowless and the central most part of the house. All we will have to do is carry in the materess from the guest room down the hall to enhance protection. Our mothers will be very anxious for us, I am sure! HAHA!

The kitchen has new cabinets and ceramic tile floor. There is a gas range which I am very excited about. If you have never cooked on gas, you are missing out!

I am very curious about the choice of blue for the countertops in an otherwise very neutral colored house. These will change eventually. In the mean time, I will just have to buy some new dishtowels!

You only see about half of this room in this picture. This is also where the back door is and it leads to the kitchen with 2 closets. Nice and clean and bright!

At least part of the detached garage will be full of boxes! Very thankful for this space!This building is about the size of a one car garage. It has electricty and plumbing (the extra bathroom is out here haha). David is excited about utilizing this for projects.
So this is our new home as of January 7th. Our physical address will be
202 S. Walnut
Douglass, KS 67039
Our mailing address will be a PO Box which we will get after we arrive.
David will start at Rose Hill Friends Church the following week. His first Sunday will be
January 16th.
