Our move to Dillingham brought a very nice surprise!
We have a house here:
And it’s huge, but you would not know that from looking at the front!
It’s actually the biggest house we have ever lived in.
We are guessing that it is about 2200 sq. ft.
It does have some quirky features,
like FIRE ENGINE RED counter tops:
Even though red is my favorite color, I am pretty sure that I would NOT pick it for my counter tops in my own house, but I can live with red because of all those cabinets. And that picture does not even show the other corner and the cabinets there. Oh and that island…..it’s about 10 feet long.
I can also appreciate the red because the rest of the house is WHITE.
Not just white, but white on white. Like this handy wall of shelves:
And see those cabinets? They would be perfect for a television. If only someone would have thought of putting that electrical outlet down there on the inside of the cabinets and run the cable tv hookup into there instead of on the opposite wall.
Now we move into the entryway and it is rather large too, which is great because when come home and take off our coats, snow pants, boots, hats and gloves we end up with quite a pile. One genius thing about this area is that there are TWO baseboard heaters, making for a great glove drying area. That door to the left is a large coat closet. Straight ahead is the door to the heated garage and to the right (out of the picture) is the front door.
Oh, looky, more RED counter top. But once again, it’s livable, because it is in my GINORMOUS laundry room. With more cabinets and what you can’t see is that it goes around to the right with more storage. I’ve never had a laundry room, always laundry closets or hallways. I love having somewhere to fold the laundry and being able to shut the door if I want to ignore it all.
The WALL O’ WINDOWS with vaulted ceilings.
The entire backside of the house is windows. The big WHITE dining room has huge, high windows. These are the living room windows and on a sunny afternoon the light just streams through, which will be a welcome sight during our long, cold winter!!
So, there you go. Our home in Dillingham.
and there likely will not be anymore pictures until one of ya’all can come up here and speed up my internet connection. I have a room for you!
