We’ve been in our current home for almost 5 years and when we bought it, it fit the bill to be at least a 10 year home. So far, we focused on the
not so fun efficiency improvements first like replacing all the single pane windows, replacing the old sliding doors with french doors, and adding insulation in the attic. While those things have helped a ton on the electric bill (which can get hefty in these Phoenix summers) they aren’t the most exciting improvements to make.
A few weeks ago, our friends were raving about some model homes that they went to and couldn’t stop talking about how much they wanted to get one of the homes built. We didn’t understand all the hoopla until they took us there….then all of a sudden my husband and I were trying to figure out a way to get one ourselves.
We took my mom to see the models again today because there is one in particular that we absolutely love. The design and staging is farmhouse but in a more modern way than I usually see. I didn’t take pictures the first time we were there so I wanted to take pictures for my own reference for future updates to our home, furniture and decor.
Now we are back in our home and dreaming of all the features we loved in the model home. Our next planned project is the master bath so now I’m getting serious on moving that forward. Here are some ideas that I’m loving.
