I was sorely tempted to wait until the house was clean, or at least unpacked before I posted pictures of our new apartment, but I think you can see just how much God has blessed us, despite the clutter! So welcome to Villa Mansion!
Elliana is carving our extra boxes in our entryway. To the left are the closets with nice little shelves for our shoes.
Elliana’s room has one closet for each of our four younger kids. The kids keep all their clothes, toys and books here. Having their stuff outside of their room is really helping the boys keep their mess under control and be more responsible with their laundry.
Dallas and David’s room looks out over the river.
Our living room also looks out over the Han. The porch serves as a place for the boys to sit and whittle and for Elliana to care for her Daisy garden.
The dining room is also our school room. We can see Seoul Tower out the window.
Our kitchen is so big- we literally have empty cabinets!
The laundry porch has this awesome drying rack that the kids love to raise and lower.
Our windows look out on Hangang park and the Han river.
So, we spend most of our time here.
I hope it doesn’t seem like I am boasting in our new house. I keep telling Kenny “Thank you for this awesome apartment!” and he keeps saying “It wasn’t me!” Everyone who reads the paperwork on our apartment, from realtors to the army guys who process our housing requests, can’t believe the low rent we are paying for all this square footage, in fact, and when we moved in the owner knocked another 500,000 Won- equal to $500- off the rent because we didn’t want cable. Add all that up and it is pretty unavoidable that this apartment is another in a long line of God’s gifts to us! So who wants to come visit?
