Come and take a tour

Yesterday morning before I started to move stuff in and even before I'd cleaned anything I took pics for a tour.
So as you open the front door we have the hall and stairs, that bit you can see at the top of the stairs is the bathroom and we'll come back to that in a while but first we're going to go through the door on the right into .....
the living room end of downstairsm the only thing you can't see is the alcove on the left behind the pillar which is a poss. home for Toby, turn around and you have......
the dining room end of downstairs, from what I can remember from growing up in a house just like this these would of been 2 seperate rooms when the house was built but at some point one door has been closed up and the wall knocked down. The door we came through is on the left behind the pillar, on we go into .......
the kitchen, all those nice clear counter tops are now covered in buckets, cloths, rubber gloves and other bits and pieces that you need when cleaning all apart from the end section on the left which has a kettle on it ready for the helpers. Immediately to the left of the door we're looking to is the door into the understairs cupboard but it's very unteresting so I didn't bother with that, to the right is the back door which leads into.....
rather unsurprisingly the back yard :) That bit of black you can see past the white bit sticking out is one of the 2 sheds I have and was the toilet when the house was built (the other was the coal shed), the best bit of this is that lovely gravelled area which is the new home for my car when not in use, no more wondering if I'll be able to park when I get home or playing musical cars with my dad. Now we go back inside and up the stairs into ......

the bathroom, I feel quite spolit having a seperate bath and shower esp when the bath is huge!
And it get's better, there's a heated towel rail :)
Out of the door we turn left and enter Mel's new room, which now looks nothing like this, the floor is covered with sheets, paint tins, brushes and a couple of stepladders
The wall with the window on is now red and the other wall is pale purple, I'll take a pic again tomorrow when it's done if Mel will let meOut of Mel's room we go left again along the landing into my room, the area between the banister and wall is where the bulk of my stash will go in the chest of drawers that belonged to my Gran (Mum's mum not Dad's who left us last year), those drawers hold memories for me from my childhood when they lived in her bathroom
And into my new bedroom, I've got 2 built in wardrobes with cupboards above and they are huge, well the one's on the left and right are the centre one and the shelves you can see are in front of the chimney breast so aren't as deep
And the other wall and window :) the only thing you can't see is the radiator and door but you should all know what they look like anyway :)

I hope you've enjoyed your tour of my new home, feel free to tip the tour guide and leave a comment in the visitor's book, LOL :)

Wow Looks good. Not fair that your house is set out the same as mine but you have a bigger garden, kitchen and bathroom!
It does look good though.
Not fair that you have a bath AND a shower though - as well as built in wardrobes!!!!!!!!
