More Future House Dreaming

My husband and I were discussing ceiling fans yesterday. Seriously! We were talking about cheap ways, when we get a house, how to use less AC and heater, and a ceiling fan is one of those easy ways. We both love having a fan in the dining room, and after being at my parents, who had a fan in every room, we loved how that felt.

I’ve found a few Craftmade ceiling fan designs that I adore. One of them, found here, called Brownstone is something I find gorgeous. I think it would look good with the kitchen design I want. I’m wanting a dark blue kitchen with white accents. Our house will have a lot of blue on white, :lol:, and not because I’m a Colts fan, though that is big reason.

There are definitely some interesting and unusual fans out there. Fanimation ceiling fans are just odd, and weird, in my opinion. My parents, in one of their bathrooms (they have 3), has a Tommy Bahama ceiling fan, or something of a similar style. Those are expensive fans. Ouch!!

What kind of ceiling fans do you have? What kind do you like?

Nope, No House

Josh called the realtor. She told him, flat-out, that it wasn’t a great house. It was previously owned by an old lady, the old lady type with lots of cats. These cats sprayed. *gross* Add to it that the basement had a major leak (a third of the foundation had to be replaced), yeah, not a good house for us.

But!! It invigorated Josh into looking for a house. We were thinking we might stay here, until we know for sure that he’s going to be become a regular within a certain time frame, but not really now. We’ll be applying for home loans around winter-time, I think. Our lease is up in May (May 01, 2009), and we want to be gone by then. We’re hoping that we can move out in April, technically, and use that last month to fix anything that needs to be fixed, like painting Madi’s room, replacing the blinds, etc.

Now I don’t feel so ridiculous looking at washer and dryers that conserve energy, looking at dishwashers, or drooling over a 26.6-cubic-feet refrigerator that has a freezer double the size of our current one, :lol:. *w00t*

Photo Hunt Saturday – Wooden

This week’s theme is Wooden. *snorts* Minds, please, out of the gutter!!

See our wooden countertops?

And see the wooden door?

*snort* Eh, I just wanted an excuse to show of my kiddos new bathroom set. They got it for free. Our friends our moving to a house with glass door bathrooms, so the kids got their kids’ bathroom set (I was so in love when I saw it and our Walmarts don’t have the design anymore :().

And my non-dressed kiddos sitting at our wooden dinner table 🙂
