Here is the second half of my parent’s house. We left off at the master bathroom. To view the first half, go here.
All of the tile work in the entire house was done by my dad. He is a carpenter and can do just about anything house-related. He is very handy. There is a clear shower door which swings out and a nice jetted spa tub next to the shower with two huge windows above. Now, you can really see that we live in the middle of nowhere surrounded by woods.
All of the cabinetry on the main floor of the house is the same, as you will see in the

I am finally home after a very stressful week and cannot wait to show all of you my parents’ house. My mom is a great decorator and has been since I was a little girl. I am sure I got my passion for it from her. The one thing that stands out in my mind about Christmas was how amazing our house always looked during Christmas, no matter how stressful the time was or how little family was coming over.

These houses seem more cottage-like and are overall much smaller than the houses featured last week. I loved this neighborhood because it seems like the perfect place to start a family: in a small house with lots of trees and plants in a cozy little neighborhood full of other starting families. Let’s start the tour!

I have decided since my last neighborhood tour that I would like to make this some sort of installment on my blog. I don’t know if it will be every week or every other week, it all kind of depends on when I get to spend time with my boyfriend, San, because he has the wheels. I really like touring neighborhoods though and I think people like reading about them, so whenever I can I will be sure to blog about
