Jacki's House Tour: Frank Betz Souders Pointe Floorplan

Well, almost a year after starting our blog, I've finally gotten my house tour together! I hope you'll enjoy a glimpse into my home.

Here's our wonderful curb appeal~


Patrick, a General Contractor, built our home in 2008 and we've had five and a half wonderful years here. It's a Frank Betz floor plan, called Souders Pointe; a great, family-friendly layout.


I do love the triple front doors. I think it adds a bit of drama to the front porch, don't you?


Come on in and stay awhile! Our foyer is a bit grand (some say bowling alley) but I've tried to soften it with cozy fabrics and an ever-changing selection of rugs!

Dining Room:

You know my thoughts on formal dining rooms...So it's no wonder we put a pool table in ours! The paint color is Sherwin Williams Mannered Gold. The trim throughout the house is SW Ivory Lace.


Looking into the foyer....
Paint color in the foyer is Benjamin Moore Stonehouse.

Family Room:

One of my favorite things about the family room is this coffered ceiling. It adds so much character and warmth to an enormous space. The color on the ceiling is Benjamin Moore Quiet Moments.

Here's that gallery wall I obsessed over  had a hard time getting right.

Check out my Pottery Barn leather ottoman I scored on Craigslist and my goodwill chair. I saw the EXACT chair in Better Homes and Gardens the month after I paid $35 for it!

Some people may consider two refrigerators overkill but with three growing boys (and their friends), I consider it necessity! We drink six gallons of milk a week. Yes, you read that right, six.

My boys are as big as I am now, but when we first moved in, my little cooks needed a step up to wash their hands. I love this little extra touch the cabinet maker did for us.

This is the Keeping Room off the kitchen. I call it my office.

The master bathroom is really quite a retreat. The tub has heated air bubbles instead of jets. Heaven!



The shower has separate shower heads on either side and a rain head in the center. Patrick jokes that you can take a warm shower in a cold rain. 

The master bedroom features beautiful vaulted ceilings. The giant chandelier was ordered from Ebay. I can't imagine anything smaller working quite as well. 


If you haven't laughed today, be sure to read the story of how I almost had to murder some pycho-craigslist dude with a spork to get this settee for my bedroom. 


My oldest son's room.

My middle son's room.

My youngest son's room. Isn't his bed cute? My mom got this bed in several pieces after it had been dropped on delivery. We glued it back together, painted and distressed it. I love the hand-painted sailboat and nautical rope. Paint colors are Benjamin Moore Stonehouse and Mars Red.

If you like this view of my toilet, you'll be surprised to know that the post on how to add wall art inexpensively by creating a gallery wall has been our MOST VIEWED POST of all time! Who knew?
Paint color is called Woodlawn 156-F by Ace Hardware.

Don't you love a good Habitat score? You can read about my cool STAIRWELL 
light by following the link.

My VERY messy Craft Room..... Would you respect me as an artist if it were neat? No! You wouldn't. 

Make an awesome gallery wall like mine! Trust me, you'll love it!

I picked up all of the framed movie posters at a yard sale for $10. Over the years, I've replaced the movie posters with ones that are relevant to our family.

If you've ever had the dilemma of curtains that are too short, you can read how I remedied that situation in my home theater room, here. 

This is one of my favorite things Patrick has ever made. I'll be super-sad to leave this gorgeous arbor behind.



This cool water feature was made by selecting a boulder from the stone yard and then very patiently, boring a big hole all the way through it. The pump and re-circulation pond is underneath the river rock bed. LOVE this!

A few from our construction days.......


So that's the grand tour. The house is now on the market as we look for land to build our next home. You can read all about it here:
