      You need to hang something on the walls. They are too bare.

      Going to paint soon. Deciding on the colors, then I'll put some artwork and masks back up.

      Nice home!

      Get some serious color on those walls... it will look even better!

      Do you have an IKEA near you?

      Thanks.

      There's an IKEA 10 minutes away from me. The chest in the guest room is from there. Bought it 4-5 years ago.

      I plan on doing some painting in the next few weeks, just deciding on the colors.

      That's the great thing about spam, it's global.

      Nice house! I have almost the same color combo in my kitchen except we had to buy and install our own handles. I wish we had the option to get tile and hardwood floors. Anyhow, congrats!

      What do these run these day if you don't mind me asking? I built in Maricopa in 2006 for 310, sold in 08 for 185, and saw my house for sale a while back for 140 or leasing for 1100 a month. It was easily worth 265-285 else where in the country. Just wondering if new construction builds are competitive?

      Low 200's for me. I got minimal upgrades since they were offering some upgrades (granite counter, flooring incentive, some energy efficient appliances) for free.

      Nice to see everything come together. I do love the exterior look of these types of houses. We'd never find anything like it in Toronto (not that they would be suitable in our climate).

      Nothing too extravagant. Rocks 3/4" and a fire pit a friend gave me.

      Man, you DO hate yard work, huh? Looks good.

      One question, is your circuit breaker panel outside?

      Yes, I really do hate yard work!!

      The main panels is indeed outside. Crazy to me but it's standard for builders in AZ to put them outside. Never lived anywhere that did that before. I need to get a lock for the panel so it's not toyed with.
