Hicks House

From Builder Basic to Beautiful

The blinds are coming! The blinds are coming!


Finally, after two months of living in our house, we have ordered blinds.  As you are learning by reading this blog, like many things you may take for granted when buying a house – builder houses do not come with blinds.  And I’m not talking about pretty decorative curtains, I’m talking blinds – the things behind the pretty curtains that keep your neighbors from seeing you nakey.  Yeah, those – we don’t have those.

Not only do they provide privacy, from the inside but they also block things you don’t want to see on the outside. Like the lovely street post that shines right in the window by where you lay your head when you’re trying to go to sleep.

Did I mention how EXCITED I AM that the blinds are finally coming?  I will no longer have to get dressed in the closet.  I will no longer have to worry about street lights at night.  I will no longer have to worry about people walking by staring directly into our house.

Hopefully with the coming long weekend we will be able to at least get up the ones in the bedroom – the rest of the rooms are second priority to being able to actually say: “In the privacy of our own bedroom” and be able to mean it.
