What makes a new house feel like home?

frontI moved to this new house 4 months ago and I am still “moving in.”  When I had finished shelving the dishes. food and pot and pans in the kitchen. I said now I am  home. Then I unpacked clothes and filled the closets and well you know…  All the moving boxes were placed in the garage (a really good idea) so inside the rooms would not feel the chaos. The day I had unpacked enough that I could pull the car in the garage – that was a big day. As my things came out of boxes to find places around this new house, it really did feel more like home. The furniture has moved around more times than I can count, searching for that perfect feng shui spot. Hanging the first of the pictures brought a rush of home. . The roma tomato I planted out back has ripening fruit that I watch with glee. Putting the books on shelves really felt like home, like having old friends come to visit. There are clippings and new pictures on the refrigerator of current happenings- that says home. I final answer for finding home for me is to finally have the time and the mindset to do my morning stretches and then write on wordpress. Morning, coffee, bare feet, nightgown and writing- I am finally home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  1. Remember that you have to go into details so as not to
    be caught surprise by expenses that might pop up later and to know what you’re really getting.
    This process makes your Tampa New House Builders current
    home worth more than it currently is worth. (for a basic rule, if it has leaves, it
    is a hardwood) For you die hard wood geeks, you know that there are distinct differences in
    these types of woods, but not so much that the consumer should be concerned.

  2. Twice a year I rearrange the furniture…pre-Christmas and post-Christmas. I’ve been doing that for 15 years…in this house. I did the same thing in the 8 other places my family has resided over the past 42 years. And I’m not done yet… Good luck in making your house feel more and more like…home. 🙂

  4. This is a BIG accomplishment! You are totally unpacked? wow! We still can’t get the truck in the garage after nearly 14 years. (just between us ok?)
    All the best wishes on your new life in your new home. Eddie

  5. Moving can be a long process. I’ve been in my new home for a year, and I’m still discovering so many new things about this place, especially about the plants in the yard. I’ve discovered that previous owners planted tiger lilies, daisies, peonies, columbine and lilac trees. Until I saw them bloom, I wasn’t sure what plants were in the yard. May your journey of discovery in your new home be as happy as mine has been. I’m glad that you are beginning to enjoy your new home. Karen
