Settling in my new HOME!

It's been a very positive experience working with Williams Custom Art Builders to design and build this beautiful new home.  Almost seven months of observing my dreams come to reality.

The moving van arrived on the morning of October 24th, and the unloading and relocating began.  Boxes and boxes - furniture being carried in and then each one being checked off the long list of numbers (a numbered sticker was on each box and furniture piece) .... so everything was accounted for by the end of the day! Whew!  I was stressed, but so happy to be home.

It is looking like home ......
 Sandy decided to hide from all the chaos and sleep under the couch ..... of course, his bushy tail protruded and somehow gave away his whereabouts!!!!!  This was right after the movers left, leaving behind lampshades and various lamps sitting around on tables and the mantle - boxes in almost every spare spot of empty floor space.
This afternoon as I was emptying a box and roving from room to room putting things in their new spot, I glanced out the master bedroom window ...... this is what I saw.  

 And a few minutes later ..... this.....

 Sandy jumped up on the bed and was gazing out at the scenes too.  He seems to be staring at the large pine tree on the other side of the fence just to the left of where the horses were grazing.  Maybe a critter or two in those limbs?
Out the kitchen window looking onto the screened porch and the wooded area in the back.  

 Out the kitchen window straight to the back - this is the barn where the horses reside.  The pasture area is to the right of the barn.
The great room in a partially restored state ... I was attempting to get a shot across the room out to the back where the barn is located and the large pine tree.  The master bedroom is to the right of this room, looking out onto the pasture.

I will try to get more photos as I settle in and share those with you.  To put in mildly .... I feel so blessed and to delighted with this home and the glorious setting.  More to come ......



  1. Oh - how wonderful. The house, rooms, setting are absolutely gorgeous. What an accomplishment for you and how perfect it all looks.
    Love, Karen

  2. It doesn't seem possible that it was just a year ago this week that you were showing me different blueprints! Wow...just, wow! I love it and I am so very happy for you.

  3. Your new home looks fantastic! Every bit of furniture seems like progress. That makes it paramount that you have all of it covered for anything that might be inflicted on them. I'm just happy that you're settling in there nicely. Congratulations, Janet! All the best to you!

  5. The scenery from outside the windows are as stunning as the beautiful arrangement of your furniture. I can really feel a warm and relaxing atmosphere, as if I'm in there. You really have such great taste. Thanks for giving us a lovely tour of your new home, Janet! All the best to you! :)
