Some Spaces You Havn't Seen - Upstairs

The kitchen remodel is coming along and so far I am loving it.  It just takes time to get everything done, so I am trying to be patient and just enjoy the process.  Still boxes to unpack and lots to get done, however I thought I would give you a tour of upstairs.  The "Builder Basic" has a great floor plan.   It functions very well for us.
I am loving the separation you have with a two story home, and I also love that you can see most of downstairs from upstairs.

As you come upstairs you reach a really nice wide landing.  All the bedrooms, hall bath and loft branch off this landing.

From the railing on the left you can look down at the living/dining areas.  I love that I can see what is going on downstairs from up here.

You can see the door on the left to the master bedroom and the door on the right is the hall bath.
Master Bedroom

Hall Bath
Just your standard typical basic bathroom.  Small vanity, toilet and tub/shower combo.  This space needs a makeover but that is for down the road.

Back on the landing you can look straight ahead and hubby is going to use the largest guest bedroom for his office.  He likes to be able to close the door when he is on the phone, so this one is a great size and perfect location.

Nothing put away, just a table with his computer on it.  The carpet is being replaced with wood floors in about a month, then he can set it up like he wants.

Back out on the landing is the linen closet on the right, then the door is open to the second guest bedroom.

For the moment, this is the staging spot for all the paintings.  I sold everything from our old guest room, so I will need to find new furniture for this room.

Turn around on the landing and look back down the stairs and you see the entrance to the loft.

This is going to be my office and a den area when it is all set up.  I will share more later.

That's it.  The tour of upstairs.  Lots to do still, but we are making progress.

If you like Thrifty & Chic on a Budget, I would love to have you follow me.

  1. You do have some great space up there. I like how you are using the loft area for your office/den area. Looks like you are settling in there very nicely!

  2. Very nice, Marty! I love how open it is up there! Have fun making it your own.

  3. 'Enjoying this so much. Thanks for all of the hard work you put in showing us your updates as you go along.

  4. Great space, Marty! I really like your cozy little den/office space.

    Warm hugs,

  5. It's truly coming along beautifully Marty!

  6. Love the openness to the upstairs. Your office areas are fabulous. I know once you get the floors installed it is going to be so pretty up there. This is so exciting to come along with you as you relove this house into your new home.

  7. Thank you for sharing your journey in this new home. I look forward every day to seeing your progress. I like your decorating style a lot because you use wooden pieces, and everything is not white. Many blogs today are all about white walls and white furniture pieces. I do love that look, but I find that I need a bit more color than that to keep me happy long term. Everything you did in your previous home was a look I myself would be able to live with.

  8. What a great layout this house has. It is so fun watching you turn it into your home.

  9. Nice layout! I was wondering what would be your blogging area. Looks like it will work out perfectly. Your clocks look right at home in your new place. xoxo

  10. Looking good! Love your den/office space! I want one too. :-) sheila

  11. You have so much more space and tons more wall space in your new home. It's such fun to watch it evolve as you settle in and make it your own!

  12. Isn't it nice to have 2 separate offices? Joe always says what keeps us together are separate offices and separate TVs, LOL! Your upstairs space is wonderful. I know it is a slow process to get everything unpacked and pictures hung etc. I am glad you are enjoying the process!!!!

  13. how fun to see other parts of your new home. congrats and best of luck as you settle in.

  14. Awesome! You are going to have so much fun doing the things that you want to it. :)

  15. Hi Marty! I'm just loving your new house! I love all the space you have and it's looks marvelous even though you say you're not done!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  16. So fun to see more of your new place Marty! Love the spot you chose for your office and den. How special to have the upstairs stairway look down on your living and dining area. I bet that makes your home feel much more spacious and open!

  17. Beautiful home ... love all of the space and look forward to seeing all of your upcoming plans come to fruition!

  18. I love the lay-out. I am sure you wil have everything perfect in no time at all.
