Parade of Homes

We went out looking at houses today on the KC Parade of Homes. They are mostly Models of new homes being built ~ but WOW!!!! Sometimes it is just fun to go and look at million dollar homes!! Of course, we didn't think far enough in advance to take the camera....but we did have my phone and it takes pretty good pictures!! Here are some pictures of the two homes we looked at in the million dollar range!

From the outside:

We saw some amazing living rooms and kitchens. The architecture was gorgeous!!

One thing I can tell you that we left with......some serious bathroom and closet envy!! Oh My GOSH!!! The bathrooms and closets in these homes were just breathtaking!!! We will have a "shower room" in our next house if we have to rob a bank for it!!

This is the bathroom. Behind the tub is a glass window....that is the shower room. It is open on both sides and is (honestly!!) about the size of our smallest bedroom!! There are no doors, just a step into it. It was all tiled and had at least 3 different shower heads!!! Off to the back/right of the picture you can see the beginning of the closet......I got pictures of that too!!

This closet was in the other home, but it was seriously LARGER than our current master bedroom!!!

And this is the second shower. It isn't the size of a room, and it was only open on one side ~ but it was a very large "nook" and was definately more open than a normal shower stall.

That's all. We had a really good time looking and oooohing and aaaaahing.....but we left and decided that we would never spend that much on a home. There wasn't anything about the house that cost $1.2 million that justified spending that much on it!! But we will most definately have one of those "shower rooms/nooks" and a significantly larger closet the next time around!

Now......I should go check my powerball ticket ~ just in case!

Love to all,
Charlie and Beth
