And part two of the home tour (part one here) – upstairs has three bedrooms, a bathroom and a large “bonus” room at the top of the stairs:
My office after I did a little organizing over the weekend. It’s much smaller than my office in the old place, and one of the smaller rooms upstairs, but I liked the window placement here and that it’s at the front of the house, so I can see the sunrise as I sit down to work. But the closet is tiny, so I have a lot of things out in the office that I didn’t before. It’s quite a bit more crowded with stuff than I’d like it to be (you don’t see my clothing rack in this picture, but you do in my outfits), but there’s not much I can do about it now. Slowre inventory is taking over…
Here is Leo’s office, which is across from mine and on the back of the house. Besides the backyard, one of the biggest reasons we were looking for a larger house was so Leo could have his own office/simulator room. In our old townhouse, his office and this giant racing simulator were upstairs on our landing area, between the two bedrooms. He didn’t mind it, honestly, but I sort of went crazy having to listen to the simulator for hours at a time. And I wanted him to have the same degree of space/privacy I had (he graciously let me have the only office space in the old house).
In addition to the three bedrooms upstairs there is a huge bonus room I was excited about, because that meant I could have my “studio” set up ALL THE TIME instead of keeping everything in a closet and pulling it out every time I needed to photograph product for slowre. This is a HUGE time/sanity saver for me, and I am so grateful to have it.
We had also been talking about getting a Peloton for a while, so now with this bonus area, we could have that as well. I’m so thankful we do…it’s been wonderful to do while I’m taking a break from Pure Barre because of my fractured jaw. And of course, Dagny has toys/socks/chews all over the floors 😉
Meh…we’ve become those people who live in a house that’s probably too big for them, but I’m not sad about it right now. When Leo and I were first together, we lived in his condo in Buckhead (Atlanta) and shared office space in our bedroom. Then, when we moved to Austin I worked at the dining room table, or in our bedroom, until we moved to Dallas and had my own office space. Now, Dagny has a backyard, we each have an office, my step-son has a bedroom for when he’s here, our kitchen is big enough for two people to move around in, friends next door…life is wonderful.
Incidentally, the condo in Atlanta is under contract. Fingers crossed all goes as planned and we can get out from under that very soon!!
I hope you have a good week ahead!
