I have been trying to put this post together for a while, but I just couldn't seem to find the time to finish it.
Things have changed a little since I did my first home tour a couple of years ago, so I thought it was time to put together a more updated one.
The military brought us to San Antonio 15 years ago. We had never thought of retiring here, but as life goes, that is exactly what happened.
We built our home in 2008.
We built our home in 2008.
We fell in love with it the moment we saw it in a close by neighborhood! We knew this was going to be the perfect home for our family. It was a very long and hard project, but all worth it in the end.
It took 10 months to built it and, although it was a specific model, we added many custom upgrades and even doing that, it is taking us a while to get the house to where we want it to be.
Before we moved into our new home, we donated most of our old furniture, so we are starting from scratch.
We raised three kids and the truth was that everything was in need of being replaced.
Please, come on in!
This is the view as you enter our home. I couldn't tell you what our style is.
We buy what we like and try to make it all go together.
We do not have a specific theme or color in our home, although we do like warm earth colors.
Our wall are all painted with Kilim Beige and Latte by Sherwin Williams.
In the foyer, the ceilings are two story high and it proved
to be a very hard area to decorate.
To the left on the foyer, we have our formal living room and dinning room.
The dinning room is not finished. Still looking for the perfect table and chairs.
And we still need area rugs, but this is what we got so far.
We painted accent walls, added a chair rail in the dinning area, a new chandelier and I also stenciled the dinning room walls with a damask design.
To the right, we have the hall table that my husband built.
Everything on that wall had to be oversize since it is so big and the ceilings so high.
To the right of the stairwell is the hallway that goes to
the library, laundry room, guest bathroom and exit to the three car garage/workshop.
Straight down from the foyer takes you to our family room,
And our back porch which you all know is under construction right now.
The stairwell I think is what sold us on the house the first time we saw it.
A couple of years ago, during some time off work during the summer, my husband and I added the chair rail and molding to the staircase wall.
Since it is all open space, we painted the bottom part Latte by SW to flow with the dinning room and living room. This was not a very hard project, but very time consuming since we built and painted all the molding pieces ourselves.
Upstairs, the Master bedroom and bathroom, four large bedrooms, one of them being my craft room, two more bathrooms and a very large storage closet.

Well, this concludes the tour of our home.
I hope you enjoyed it!
There is still so many upgrades we want to do and so many walls to decorate, but I am sure it will all happen with time.
Thank you all for taking the time to come by and always leave me the sweetest comments!
I really appreciate all of you!
