More pics of the house

We'll now continue with the tour of the rest of the house......

Here is our bedroom. We got all of this furniture from Renato's parents. BLESSINGS!

Right now, this is what we have in our office/guest bedroom. Another big blessing in this room is the desk. The owner left it here for us. Thank you owner!

Here is the guest bathroom. Both bathrooms are identical, this one just has less "stuff" in it. They are nice bathrooms with big showers. The only problem is there is NO storage space at all. For some reason, every house/apartment I've lived in since I have been married has had pretty much no storage. I guess I should be used to it by now. :)

Now onto the dining room. We purchased a new table and chair set, and "buffet" table. We bought the buffet table because I needed a place to store all of my teaching books and materials for teaching English, since the dining room also serves as the classroom.

Last but not least, the living room. This room is actually pretty large. There are 3 big blessings in this room. The couch, love seat, and TV are all from Renato's parents. Thank you my dear mother-in-law and father-in-law!!

OK, I didn't do Camden's room yet. I'll save that for next time. I also should take a picture from the outside of the house, even though there's not much to see. You can only see the front gate. That's how houses are in Brazil. There are no front yards open to the street. The tall gates or walls surrounding your house are what you see. Let me tell you how much I miss how beautiful front lawns make a city look. I'll get used to this eventually though.

So, next time we'll continue on with our tour.....

I'm not sure how I would feel about an all tile house. I guess depending on the type. The tile I have I HATE as it is textured to look like stone and is very hard to clean and keep clean. I hope your tile is better!

Looks nice and clean. I think that tile is nice and cool in the summer? I am thinking it is pretty sweltering in Brazil?
