Officer Army Housing
A Soldier welcomes us into his home, introduces us to his wife, and then takes us on a tour of his home.
Hi welcome to my home, I'm Major Joe Lehman. Come on in and let me show you around. Follow me into the living room. First I'd like to introduce you to my wife Amy and our daughter Makenzie.
And like I said this is the living room where we spend a majority of our time. One of the big draws for me was the fireplace. When it gets cold in the wintertime, I really like to light the fire and settle in for the evening. The main reason we spend so much time down here is because of what is hidden behind the doors, our TV, like every good American family.
Now we'll head into the dining room. I've been in the Army now for about 12 years and we've had an opportunity to collect a lot of furniture and items like the Polish pottery that we store in our built-ins here that my wife collected, in while we were station in Germany. One of the nice things about this house is the size of the dining room allows us to use our table that we picked up in Dallas, Texas. Also in Dallas, we picked up this China hutch, which allows us to display more of my wife's Polish pottery.
All right as we move into the kitchen, I'd like to make mention, that even though the house is over a hundred-years old, the Army has done a good job of updating it. Starting off with the refrigerator that's big enough to keep full and keep my family fed. Moving over to the dishwasher, which is a big bonus for my wife. Now that we finished the downstairs, I'm going to pass you off to my wife Amy, and she's going to show you the upstairs.
Hi, so welcome to our upstairs. As Joe mentioned to you in the kitchen, the home is over a hundred-years old. So when we initially moved in our concern was how much space is available in an old home? We were pleasantly surprised to find out that our upstairs hosts 3 bedrooms, and then each one of the bedrooms are 2 closets.
This is Makenzie's room, and one of the closets we use to hide away all the numerous toys that a 3-year old seems to accumulate.
Our first bath is just here in the hallway, which is shared by the 2 rooms, the visitor's room and Makenzie's room. It's a nice size facility with a shower and full bath.
So if you'll come on with me, I'd like to show you the master suite. So another concern we had was how large would the master bedroom be? We own a king-size bed and as you can see there's generous amount of space in the master suite here, plenty of closet space, for our modern life style of too many clothes. The master bedroom also has it's own bathroom which is why I like to call it my master suite. Along with that behind me, you'll notice there is a dressing area although some of the residents in the neighborhood also have made it a little reading nook for the master bedroom, which again gives it its own master suite feel.
Well you've seen just about everything, except for the garage and basement, and nobody needs to see that, so thanks for stopping by.
