The last time I did a video house tour, it was back before we renovated the bathroom and finished up the Room of Requirement – i.e. it was well over a year and a half ago! And since we’re planning a pretty massive move down to California, I thought now would be a good time to update the latest video tour. Because…le sigh…it might be the last time to really photograph the house before it gets all “torn up” before we move. So here goes nothin’!
Oh, and if you’re curious what the last house tour was like, then you can click here for the one we took in January 2011. It’s kind of funny to watch them one after the other just to spot the changes. Dr. J and I recently watched the one from 2011 and it’s amazing to see the old master bathroom and how much of an upgrade we gave that sucker.
Here are some fun things to point out in the 2012 tour:
- Maggie, the Mascot Mutt – she kept following me around upstairs (as she always does) and made some cute cameos :-).
- My “technical difficulties” with the camera – I just couldn’t win (story below)
- The completed office, Room of Requirement and Master Bath!
- I was still wearing my Pajamas when I made this tour so notice how I slyly avoid looking in mirrors throughout the tour – haha! there are a few peeks, though – don’t worry, it wasn’t anything too risque!
- Apparently I say “Love it! Love it! Love it!” a few times throughout. I don’t notice it, but Dr. J did…haha!
So that’s the video house tour 2012. Hopefully it should come in handy for our future renters-to-be?? Who knows? Also, I just couldn’t seem to “win” the day I shot this. I went to use the Flip cam, realized it was out of battery and switched to my point-and-shoot camera which has video capability. I shot the downstairs with no problems, then when I went upstairs I accidentally shot myself directly in the mirror wearing my pajamas and my hair all a wreck (classy!). So I had to do another take and then my camera ran out of battery (gah!), so I had to do a quick charge and rush through the last half of the tour – hah! It was funny :-). Like I said, I just couldn’t seem to win!
Let me know what you think. You’ll have to head on over to YouTube to watch the video but it should give you a pretty good idea of the layout of our house and all the changes we’ve made since the last tour. Enjoy!
