Our NEW Home....before

So we have been living in our home just over 2 months now. We love it so much. There have been a few hiccups along the way though. You may remember that there was a mole in the back yard when we moved in. After talking to one of our new neighbors it looks like the old owners were so upset with the bank and wanted to destroy the yard and was hoping it would go to foreclosure. (we bought it as a short sell). This all makes sense now. The yard was trashed, hadn't been watered in over 8 months. There are weeds everywhere. Also, last week we wanted to turn the water on for the sprinklers...low and behold they packed the box with dirt. We still don't know how were gonna get all the dirt out to turn the sprinklers on. Im afraid they will be broken too. For now, we will just turn the hose on and use a cheep sprinkler from walmart. Were slowly getting the yard looking better. We got a new dandelion killer that we are gonna use this weekend. At this point I would just prefer a green lawn over a yellow one!

Since we moved in we have done lots and lots of painting, cleaning carpets and a few new appliances. But before I post those I would like to show you what are house looked like the day we got our keys!

Our home is a tri-level. There is 3 bedrooms. 2 bathrooms. and an un-finished basement. 

 This is the view right when you walk in the front door. This is the main living room.
