That’s right. The rock is finished.. it hasn’t taken that much time, just, oh maybe, a year or two. But we should admit something.. we paid someone to finish.
But shh..don’t tell anyone.
This post naturally flows right into the next part of our house tour. The living room. Since it has had an unfinished fireplace for sometime, and it now sports a nice rock façade.
Just follow me from the kitchen right on into our cozy little living room space.

(if you notice a cut out in the fireplace, that is where our t.v. will eventually go, so it can be tucked away when not in use.)
View 2: from the office
If you haven’t noticed the rock yet.. check it out.

and now with the rock..
I think its much improved. Now if only it was Christmas so we could hang some stockings up on that mantle.
Here are a few other shots of the living room..
This is our coffee table, that I “made”, and I say “made” because I didn’t cut the wood or anything, but I debarked it, sanded it, sealed it, and put legs on it.
Oh another deer.
Behind the living room, sort of nestled in under the stairs, is this little nook.. but excuse the under side of the landing, it still needs to be painted, and the small toy mouse I just noticed on the floor.
Here’s a close up of this score Tyler bought for our 3rd anniversary.
Well done sir.
Here is one other little “nook” I guess
And here is one last picture to show the living room in relation to the other rooms you have toured..
And a little sneak peek at the outside, since it seems like forever since I have posted a picture of the exterior.. it stills needs some power washing however..
In other news.. Our home was featured in a story by ABC World News, for literally a second, so don’t blink you may miss it. But here’s the clip.
