Home, Sweet, Home…
Well I’m finally unpacked… and my 2bedroom house has become my home! I thought I’d share some photos..(family and friends have asked)! So sit back and enjoy a virtual tour of my house!
The photo on the upper left is my ‘boot’ room..or front door! Usually I keep the door closed so that when it gets really cold, the coldness doesn’t come right into you house… and there’s lots of room for storage! I have a bin for hats, mitts and scarves… plus the two jackets I’ve been wearing lately. On the upper right the photo is right at the of the boot room looking into my living room and kitchen up the stairs!
The bottom left shows my living room… and how you can look up into the kitchen! And the photo in the bottom right is a similar photo to the one I posted for Day 5, looking down from the kitchen into the living room~ just for a note… my house came furnished, but I brought up the rug, IKEA tube light, and two white shelves when I came!
If you turned right when you come into my house you would walk into my spare bedroom! My spare room has turned into an ‘exercise’ room…I’m loving my treadmill, and I can still watch TV while I’m working out! I have to wait for bed rails for my bed before I can put the rug on the floor! (and if you are wondering my bike is still in the box…I have to put it together, but with all the snow outside…it hasn’t been a priority!)
Here’s a shot of my kitchen… there always seems to be dishes around my sink… today they just happen to be CLEAN! hehehe
Across from the bathroom (before my bedroom room)… there’s a double door that has shelves for linens and storage on one side–(it was kind of messy so you don’t get to see that!) and on the other side laundry! The top photo was taken with me standing in the bathroom door… the bottom photo is a shot of my bathroom… nothing really out of the ordinary with it–tub/shower, toilet, sink!
Here’s my bedroom… the only room that has carpeting! It’s in pretty rough shape..I’ve asked that housing take it out and put tiles in like the rest of the house..but that takes time! I’m pretty glad that my mum found those dark blue curtains–they will help with the 24hour sunlight next spring/summer. When I lived here in 2009 I ended up just tin-foiling my window to keep the sunlight out, glad I don’t have to do that this time! I have a closet space in the corner…I still have to hang my IKEA start lights…and maybe another photo or something!
So that’s my little house in the Arctic. Hope you enjoyed the tour… I’m thankful I’m all settled, as with the weather we’ve been having (snow and wind) it’s nice to have a comfy-cozy place to call home!
