To Grandmother's House We Go...

I promised you all a tour of grandma's beautiful home in the Tahoe Mountains.  She and my grandpa designed the home and decorated it all on their own.  Here's a quick picture of the floor plan:

Since the house is so big, I couldn't get the entire floor plan in one shot, so this part of the floor plan I'll be sharing today!  The great room, kitchen, dining and screened in porch. Enjoy!

Entry

To the right of the entry way is the kitchen.  Isn't it just to die for?? Excuse the cooking mess...I took these on Thanksgiving.  {Just keepin' it real}


A nice big bar is perfect for casual dining for a large group of people

The dining room is right across from the kitchen by a beautiful bay window.

My favorite part must be the beautiful, rich, tall ceilings! And boy are they tall! Just stunning.
To the right of the kitchen and dining room is this great screened in porch! So fun to sit out here in the summer (:

This is the great room straight ahead when you enter, and to the left of the kitchen and dining spaces.  Look at the TV...it's massive! A great place to watch movies.  Forget going to the theatres!

Other side of the great room.  I love the little nook up above the couch on the far side.  She has it decorated with deer and trees, which is fitting for the mountains! 

The house is so warm and cozy.  It really gives you the sense that you've arrived at the nicest lodge in town.  You can see my dog, Shasta, really enjoys it, too! (:  I love that even though it's such a big home, you're not overwhelemed, nor do you feel like you're going to break something.  It's simply relaxing.  Especially when it's snowing out their massive windows in the great room.


Stay tuned for more photos of the rest of the house soon!  There's 8,000 square feet...so we've got plenty more eye candy.  

Happy Wednesday!  What are you doing today?

PS. Check out Jhen's blog over at From Here to Eternity to read some of my thoughts on the Christmas Season!

Love and Grandma's House,
