We love our new house. We have so much more space. The fights are so much fewer. Everyone gets along better. "Everything has a place" is my new motto. I often say it when I catch the kids leaving something out. It seems that the upkeep has actually been easier, even though the house is four times bigger. It sure is great to have a place for everything. And I do mean everything. We fell so very blessed to have this house.

The tree in the turret.
The huge front porch.
Built-n cubbies. LOVE them! (These are why I bought the house).
Cozy wood stove/fire place.
Beautiful (original) wood work and fixtures.
