But enough of that blather. You came here to look at pictures, so here they are.
Some house. At $489K it had better be. The pics turned out to be a lot of work (as in A LOT OF WORK) but it was cool to explore practically every square inch of the place. And how 'bout that kitchen?
The formal dining room was a challenge. I had to set up two 500 watt softbox lights to get the lighting right. That's where a lot of the work came in. But I still spent the whole three hours telling myself, "You are getting PAID for this" as I alternated between pinching myself and giggling manically.
I could live on this sun porch. All it needs is a margarita machine and I'd never have to leave. And the dog standing outside was such a baby. He just knew I was there to take pictures of him.
Okay, I might have to leave the sun porch every so often to take a nice, soaking bath in the jacuzzi. After all, man does not live by margaritas alone.
Different bathroom. Great shower. Great everything. The lighting in here was great, though. I used the natural light and it came out great.
I now know what I want my home office to look like. It won't, but I know want I want it to look like.
The view from the third floor landing. Yes, I said third floor. As in three of 'em. Just looking at the picture makes my nose want to bleed from the altitude.
The "Game Room." With a fully stocked beer fridge and wine cooler. This is definitely a well thought out abode.
This bedroom required a lot of finagling and extensive post-processing before it was suitable for viewing. The lighting was very challenging and even after I got a good enough exposure the file needed a lot of tweaking to make it look good. And it was well worth the effort.
This guest room, on the other hand, was almost too eager to please. The two big windows and the bright paint scheme made it a breeze to shoot and post-processing was minimal. (For those who might be curious, I use Digital Photo Professional 3.10 by Canon mainly with additional processing done through Adobe Photoshop 7.0)
Here is a third full bath, this one with a gorgeous clawfoot bathtub. The woodwork throughout this house was incredible.
Here is the view from the second floor landing. The only problem I'd have with living in this house is I'd work myself to death going from one floor to another looking for stuff. Because it's some kind of rule that if you need something it will be in another room if you have more than one room, and on another floor if you have more than one floor. That's just how it works. I don't make the rules.
