Why you should buy our house (part 1)

(with real life cluttered unstaged pictures of our home.)

3 bedroom
1 bath
tuck-under garage
large private lot
wood stove


This home is perched at the top of a hill overlooking the beautiful neighborhood of Woodland. It is within walking distance of Woodland Community Center, Piggly Wiggly and Hartley Nature Center.

2. YARD, YARD, and more YARD!!

In my humble opinion, this home is situated on one of the best lots in Woodland. Lot size is 60 by 300!!! Pick your own raspberries, let your kids go "exploring" in the woods as you as you supervise through the huge kitchen window, enjoy the neighbor's gorgeous perennial gardens (without having to weed),

host killer parties (patio added in '06),

drink your morning coffee on the patio surrounded by greenery and wildlife,

have a camp out in your own backyard,
let your kids bring a bunch of junk into the woods and call it a fort (hours of fun!),

swing under the mighty oak in your underwear
(if that's your cup-o-tea,)
Did I mention this yard is very private?

or fully clothed (if you prefer.)

This huge private yard can't be beat!!

#2B Did I mention the yard has lots of flower beds?


This home is full of natural light.......just what you need to fight those winter blues. New energy efficient windows throughout the home including a brand new picture window with fabulous sunset views of Hartley Park.

(view from kitchen window overlooking backyard)

(sunroom with windows galore!!)

(nothing like washing your babe in a nice deep sink while the sun streams thru the window.)

(view from 2nd story bedroom)

(bright dining room with southern exposure)


This newer Lopi Freedom Stove effectively and economically heats this home AND adds ambience galore. There is nothing like cuddling up next to the warmth and glow of a cozy fire. (There is also a newer forced air furnace and hot water heater.)

Stay tuned for more info about the inside of home.

Sniffling & fighting off tears...seriously. Just looking at all the memories in your home must be difficult. However, I am so happy for you guys. You've been willing to step out of your comfort zone to see what else God could possibly have for you. And he DOES have something special planned for your family. You will be missed. We loved coming to your home for those amazing hangouts & events. We've enjoyed the summer parties in your lovely backyard. I wish we were in a position to purchase your home. Really, I do! It is beautiful!! Finishing up your requests for your cd this week. Delivery next week. :-) Thanks for your patience.

P.S. SO excited to see the pics of Steve's shave!

I always loved your house!!! So charming and cozy! I will keep my ears open if I hear of anyone looking to move to that area. Best of luck with the move. Make sure you keep blogging when you move to Iowa!!

Should you ever desire a career in marketing, I know you would do just splendid! God's richest blessings as you begin this new chapter of your life! For very selfish reasons, I'm so glad that He kept you there this past year. Just the other day, someone commented again about the lights around the door at the chapel, you did a fabulous job! Enjoy your adventure!
