The Empty Rental Home: Main Level

 I'm sure you have all been waiting to see what kind of home we have moved into. We are renting a two story, four bedroom, three bathroom home with a two car garage and a fenced in yard. We'll start from inside the front door...I haven't take pictures of the outside yet. :)

Front door and entrance hallway

The dining room is to the right in the photo above.

Dining room came with a free plant!
And to the left (in the first photo of the door) is a little hallway leading to a closet on the left, a full bath straight ahead and a guest room on the right. The guest room photos are the next two you see below. It is a bit smaller than our last guest bedroom in our basement, but not by much.

Guest bedroom
 The guest room window faces the front of our home. It would be to the right as you walk up to the door. The dining room window faces the front as well and would be on the left.
Guest closet
The next two photos are the guest bathroom and then the storage closet just outside of it. That storage closet had some damage to the wall that the owners realized as they were moving out. It's in the middle of being repaired. It will have shelves mounted inside...more places to store things!

Guest bathroom

Hall storage closet
 Next is the view into our kitchen from the dining room that is the front on the house.
The view of the kitchen below is looking back towards the dining room and the front of the home. See that free plant again?!
Kitchen (yes those are granite counter tops)

Plenty of cabinets...and probably too deep of a pantry!

Stainless steel appliances...including double convection ovens
 Below is the eat in area of the kitchen. The door pictured goes out to our two car garage. And that window looks out onto the screened in porch (shown further down).

Eat in kitchen area
 I think we are going to be spending a lot of time on our screened in patio in the back yard!

The window on the left of the picture below is that window seen from the eat in kitchen. The owners planted new trees and bushes just before they left! That one with the pink flowers, I have seen blooming since we arrived in June...not sure what that is!

And this is another view of the yard from the screened in porch. No view of neighbors if you look this way! That door in the picture leads out to a concrete patio.

Door goes back into the house from patio

Outside Patio
 Yes, that is the front door again in the photo below. This is the view as you come back into the house from the screened in porch. Notice the granite counter on the right, that is the kitchen over there. The door to the left in the picture is a coat closet.
 Now I've made a 90 degree turn to my left and we are looking at the living area on the main level. The window to the left looks out to the back yard and over that patio next to the screened in porch. That is a gas fireplace and the brackets above are for a flat screen television (which yes, has already been installed).

Living Room

 And these stairs lead to the upper level...which I will show you tomorrow!

Stairs to the upstairs
The paint color on most of the walls is the same color I painted most of our upstairs living room at our last house. I guess I won't be needing to paint since I like the color!


  1. It looks amazing! Thank you for sharing :)

  2. It looks fabulous! And those floors are amazing! :D
