THE PERFECT HOUSE FOR US! | House Hunting Vlog #3


(intense electronic music)
– RavenElyseTV. Hey guys, what’s up, it’s Raven. Welcome back to another
house hunting vlog! These are like my favorite videos, because that means in real life I get to go look at more houses,
and I get closer and closer to actually finding the right house and buying my first house
and having my dream house. So I’m really excited,
I’m in a great mood. I’m excited especially
because my mom actually went to go look at a house without me (laughs) and she found it, and she looked at it, and she said that she
thinks it might be the one. ‘Cause you guys know I
looked at a total of about almost 10 houses I’ve
really looked at so far, and none of ’em were quite right. We saw some really nice houses,
we saw some smaller ones, some bigger ones, ones
that were further out from my location, ones
that were closer in, but none of them were just 100% perfect. But my mom said, and she
showed me the floor plan on a piece of paper,
so it was hard to tell, but even from me looking at
the floor plan of this one that she found, it does
look pretty promising. So we actually have three
houses to look at today. You know, we gotta build up
the suspense a little bit. We’re gonna look at two
different houses first. These ones, I’ve also kinda
seen the floor plan of, and they seem really nice as well. But the third one, the last
one that we’re gonna look at, is the one that my mom says that she thinks might be the one. Alright, so I just pulled
up to my mom’s house. I’m meeting up with her,
she’s gonna go show me where these three houses are. (chill dance music) Okay, so house number one. We walk in here, they don’t
have doors on the office on this one, but this
is the office over here. It’s a pretty good size. We got some cool little
built-ins on the back. That’s kinda cool, ’cause it’s different than what you normally see. Pretty tall ceilings. On the opposite side of the office, you have a formal dining room,
which is not really my vibe, not my jam, ’cause I don’t need
or want a formal dining room so that’d be something
that I would have to try and put doors on and
change it to something else, or it would just kinda
be wasted space for me. I mean, it’s nice, but I
already know I wouldn’t use it. They’ve got it under this
archway thing, with this abstract beams on the ceiling. I mean, that’s kinda cool. The entryway is kinda
dark ’cause it’s backlit, but the entryway is really tall. With the other window up there. So then going straight into the house, the first thing you see
is the stairs going up and the balcony, so it’s
really open right there. You can see directly into that bedroom. But just going straight through here, first door on the right, what is this? Oh, this is the powder room. Bathroom, half bath. So you’ve got bathroom right
in the front of the house, first thing, little small. Powder room. Second door right here, I’m guessing this is just
a little closet, yeah. Little coat closet. And then keep going,
and it actually opens up into the living room, which is pretty big, and it feels really big,
’cause of the super tall ceilings, like really tall ceilings. And I like these windows. It makes it feel a lot more open, you get good natural light,
they go all the way up. We’ve got a fireplace in here. It’s got a little built-in
thing above the fireplace. This is nice, I mean it’s not my style with how they have it done up in here, but the space is nice. And then if you’re standing
in the living room, and you look up, you can
see up into the upstairs, ’cause there’s a balcony
overlooking the living room. So then here’s the kitchen, got a little built-in thing over here. Got the kitchen bar. Where the living room is, so
that’s good for entertaining. Non-formal dining area,
breakfast table over here. Going into the actual kitchen, it’s kind of a funky layout,
because it’s like a circle. Usually kitchens are like an L-shape or just a straight line, but this one goes all the way around, like
you’ve got your sink, cabinets go all the way over there, then you’ve got your
oven and your microwave, then you’ve got the pantry,
then you’ve got the fridge, then you’ve got the stove. Everything twists around,
and you’ve got this smaller island in the middle, which
is good to give you extra countertop space, but kinda awkward, ’cause it’s right smack
dab, like I don’t know. It feels a little crowded in here. I don’t really like that
layout, it feels claustrophobic. But I mean, you end up with
a lot of countertop space. This is kinda weird right
here, where it cuts off and then goes around the
corner and keeps going. Over here by the fridge is the pantry. And it’s just a little
L-shaped, little pantry. Not a walk-in pantry or anything. And then this is where the garage is, and then you can go back into
the dining room through here. So yeah, I really don’t like
this layout for the kitchen. And then, when you go back
over here by the table, you’ve actually got a bedroom. (laughing) Behind the kitchen. So this is the floor
plan that I looked at, and I remember thinking
that’s really weird, to just have a little,
small bedroom hidden behind the kitchen. And when you walk outta your bedroom, you’re just like, good morning guys. – Maybe you could make it a studio. – You could, I mean yeah,
it you wasn’t usin’ it as bedroom, if you weren’t
using it as a bedroom, maybe. But this wouldn’t make a good studio, ’cause it’s just got this
one little small window and just the layout of it overall is like, how would I even set my stuff up in here? It’s got this little mini door. This door is not standard
size, (laughing) what? And then, it goes into the bathroom. This is creepy. I do not like this. The bathroom is normal or
whatever, but the door is small. I don’t know if you guys could tell. But yeah, then you walk
outta your bedroom, and you’re like, hi guys, good
morning, time for breakfast. But right here, it leads
out to the backyard, which is also scary. (laughs) It’s got a balcony deck thingy, I don’t know what you would
call this, but it’s raised up, above the ground a little bit. You go down the stairs, and then you’ve got your whole backyard. Not much actual yard space, I feel like, unless you get that whole
area over there, I’m not sure. Also, the scary bedroom over here, next to it, you’ve got the laundry room. So the laundry room is
right off the kitchen. It’s a decent size, it
has a sink and everything, has storage, that’s nice, but I just don’t like the placement of it, to have it right off the kitchen. So going back, like
where the living room is, walking over here, off the
living room, it has a little art nook, and then you go into the master bedroom, which is quite large. They’ve got their little
seating area over here, with the windows how I like. Over here, they’ve got
some pretty large furniture and artwork. They’ve got these big old tables
on either side of the bed. So, definitely a lot of space, it’s got beams on the ceiling. And then double doors
opening up into the bathroom. This is a very similar bathroom layout to ones that we’ve seen before, where you’ve got one sink,
the tub, another sink. – [Toni] Does that tub seem kinda low? – [Raven] Yeah the tub is
like on the floor. (laughs) Yeah that does look kinda
weird, it’s pretty low. – This is a cool idea that
they put this mirror here, so when you’re getting
dressed in the morning. – Selfie mirror. – That’s a cool idea.
– Outfit of the day. I don’t know why they put a
ledge instead of just making it full-length. The shower is not cool. (laughs) it’s like a standard, ugly shower. Then you’ve got your
toilet, standard, whatever. Then, you’ve got the
closet, which is pretty big. It goes in pretty deep. Not the biggest closet we’ve seen so far, but you know, decent size. They’ve got some built-ins in here. So the bathroom is pretty
on par with what we’ve seen. This sink has more counter space, so I would probably be using this side. This is like hers and his. Go up the stairs. So this first bedroom, right
when you get up the stairs, like literally you step off the stairs, and you’re like stepping into the bedroom, which is kinda weird. It has a bit of an awkward shape to it. They’ve got it like a little boy’s room. It’s kind of smallish. Leads back here into
its own full bathroom. So this is good, decent, standard size. This is good for a kid’s room I guess, but it’s just weird how it’s
right in front of the stairs. – [Toni] Also it’s a weird shape. How it has this little cutout here, but I guess it’s cool,
but it really limits. – You have to have your
room setup like this. Not that many options, and
then it’s like you fall down the stairs when you wake
up in the morning. (laughing) It overlooks the downstairs. This thing feels kinda low. Like I feel like I–
– It does. – Fall over. I don’t really like– – [Toni] Maybe the house is
built for short people. (laughs) – But then would you wanna be?
– I dunno, I dunno, I’m kidding. I kid.
– Okay, so you go down this way. There’s a bathroom, which
connects to this room. She’s a cheerleader, apparently. So this room is a good size. Normal layout, not a
weird shape or anything. Got a little tiny walk-in closet. But you keep going around
this balcony hallway, and there’s another bedroom on this side. So this one. – [Toni] This would be
a good room for Ziya. – Oh yeah, this is the best room actually, ’cause look at the closet,
this is like a second master. – Oh wow.
– Because it’s got a big ol’ closet, like why
is the closet so big? It’s like almost the same size as the master closet downstairs. – [Toni] This may be a plan
that calls this a second master. – It’s got a weird, another
creepy door over there. – [Toni] Oh yeah, it’s
for the attic space. – And then a master– – [Toni] This is a nice
bathroom as a secondary bathroom.
– This is like a mini master. ‘Cause it’s got double vanities,
got the full bath shower. This shower almost looks
better than the one downstairs. So yeah, going out of this mini master, it leads into this kind of open space. There’s no door or anything,
this is the game room. It’s kind of stuffy back here. – It’s too dark.
– It’s got windows, but it’s like, I don’t know
why it’s so dark in here still. Maybe the way they have it painted and stuff isn’t helping either. But they’ve got all this
living room furniture in here. This is weird. I don’t know about this. ‘Cause it’s just like back
here in the back back, so if this was Ziya’s play area, I feel like she’d be really tucked away, back here in the dungeon. (laughs) And it’s just like, I don’t
need a mini master, I dunno. This just isn’t. It’s not fitting my needs.
– You know, this just goes to show you, how you can look
at something on a floor plan, and it can have the size you
want and the number of rooms and the types of rooms you
want, but then when you see it in person, certain things, I
can’t tell from the floor plan. That you just have to
kinda walk through it and see how it really feels to you. – ‘Cause yeah, when I
looked at this floor plan, I was just like, oh it has
the right amount of rooms, it seems big, spacious,
I like the staircase, the balcony seems nice. But I did notice a few
things on the floor plan that kinda seemed kinda weird, but yeah, definitely now that
I’m actually thorough it, I’m like, this is a weird layout, it has just weird things about it that, either don’t work for
me or just feel awkward or are kinda creepy, and yeah. So this is definitely not the one, but we have two more houses to go look at, so let’s go to house number two. (chill dance music) Alright, so house number two. Got a cool door on it. Let’s see, ooh! Wow, that is really tall and
really pretty, I love that. They got the big ol’ curtains! (man chattering in background) They’ve got some people
signing paperwork in here, so I don’t wanna be
too loud and obnoxious, but this is the office. They’ve got it decked out
like Austin music scene. Very large, they’ve got
space for a couch, bookshelf. Got the desk in here. This is a nice office. You have the really cool
dining space over here with the tall ceilings, and
then let’s go upstairs first, since there’s people down here. So this has a balcony as well. It has a balcony on this side, looking over the front of the
house and the dining room. And then it also has a
balcony on this side, looking over the living room. When you first get up from the stairs, the first thing that you go into over here is actually the bathroom that
is connected to this bedroom, which is, ooh! This is a cute little bedroom. Look how they’ve got the ceilings painted. Lots of cute little
details in this design. It’s got like a little smoker balcony, which is not great for
a kid’s room, but okay. (laughing) What is a kid
gonna do with that type of balcony, but okay. It’s got the little Jack and Jill, where you’ve got your closet,
little walk-in closet. Then you’ve got your sink, then you’ve got your toilet and tub, then you’ve got your Jill sink, so that was the Jack sink,
this is the Jill sink and the Jill closet. And then Jill’s room. Oh, and it’s another ballerina room, like one of the other ones we looked at. That’s cute, and this
is a nice sized room. They’ve got a little corner
bed thing, that’s cool. We can also get some really
cool room decor ideas from lookin’ at the model homes. – I love the little
silver nightstand there, silver painted. You could definitely
DIY something for Ziya. – Yeah, you get some good DIY ideas, and just different stuff like this. Like who ever thought to put
two headboards or whatever? So you come back out through here. And it just opens up into
this big playroom space. Oh, this is so cute! Oh my gosh. They’ve got a little tree
house bunk bed thing. And then, on this side,
(gasps) I love this. This is what I wanted to
do in Ziya’s playroom, it’s like a little–
– Oh that’s so cute. – Like, you know, artistic
crafting station almost. School slash crafts. Maps, paper, paint, that’s so cute. And table where you can do stuff. They’ve got their couch and
stuff, but this is really cool. And then underneath, you’ve
got little firewood pillows. This is a big area. Open. And then it leads into
a media room in here. (Toni laughs) They’ve got a big couch,
and then still more seating back here. – [Toni] Oh it’s like a little step up. – So it’s like a theater, you know? And then they got the TV over there. – [Toni] Wow. – No microwave or mini fridge, but you could put one in over there. Balcony and then this opens up
nice and wide to the kitchen. Ooh, that’s a cool little feature, except if your pantry’s dirty,
that’s not gonna be cool. But that’s cool on the pantry door. So it’s got a big island in the middle. Kind of an L-shaped kitchen. Kind of ugly tile that
they’ve got on here. (laughs) But, you like it? – I don’t like this countertop. – I don’t like this, I don’t
like the cabinet color, I don’t like the backsplash. So I’d have to imagine it with
my type of finishes on it. But, it’s a nice layout. So just to give you an overview, it’s a nice layout, I like it. It feels very open. Nice little L-shaped
pantry, nothin’ too fancy. Decent storage. Lots of counter space
with this big island. And then, this is cute, because
they have a little bench for the table over here by the windows. And yeah, this eating area’s
pretty spacious as well. So then off the kitchen,
you see the living room, which is pretty large as well, and it has big, tall ceilings. Two-story ceilings. Windows going all the way up. They’ve got their TV above
the fireplace right here. This is a more standard,
classic fireplace. This feels spacious and open, and you’ve got the balcony
upstairs looking over it. And then, over here off the living room, you’ve got the master. Oh those are double doors,
I’m like, this is a huge door. And the master is pretty,
pretty big, you know. They’ve got some nice,
big furniture in here, and it still feels very spacious. Two corner windows, then
one window over here instead of the three windows, like how I’ve been liking
in some of the other houses, but they’ve got this little
extra window up here, which is cool. And then the bathroom, ooh. Ooh! Okay, so the shower is
right here, oh whoa. They’ve got this fancy shower head on it. But this is a large shower,
with the frameless door, glass doors. Large soaking tub with
a nice window above it. I really like that, and I like how they’ve
got these plants here, that’s really pretty. And then you’ve got
pretty good vanity space. Counter space, storage underneath. And this is nice and large. Then you’ve got your toilet closet here and your closet here. Not that big of a closet, but I mean, it is a walk-in closet. So whatever. And then you got through (laughing) hello. – This room feels really long. – It’s kind of an awkward–
– The bed that way. – [Raven] It feels like
bunch of wasted space, ’cause when you walk in,
you’ve got all this empty space right here that you can’t
really do anything with. – Yoga. – (laughing) Yoga? And then you’ve got all
your furniture clumped up in the back corner. So from this direction, it’s just like, what is this for? So go back through the
living room, the kitchen, the backyard kinda just has
a small, little patio thingy. Nothing fancy at all. Ooh, ooh. This is underwhelming. It’s literally just this
little block of tile right here with some chairs on it and then grass. Nothing cool out here, so
that’s kind of disappointing. Back through here, we’ve got the full bath. And it has a door that
goes into the bedroom, but also there’s another door right here, if you wanna come into the bedroom. This is kind of just a
smallish, medium-sized bedroom. Nothing too fancy, closet’s over here. Kind of small, walk-in closet. Mudroom thingy right here, because this is the laundry
room and the garage. So decent sized laundry
room with a little sink, little cabinet, nothin’ too crazy, no extra cabinets on the wall above it. So that’s decent, whatever,
not that cool, not that great, but pretty good. – [Toni] So what’re your final thoughts about house number two. – House number two is nice,
we’ve got some good things about it, I really like this, but again, formal dining room, what
do I need that space for? What am I gonna do with that? And then again, there’s
awkward things about it, like the master didn’t
really make me excited. It was a weird layout. Oh, the backyard patio thing is not cool. If I had to live here, I
could definitely make it work, but there’s just things
about it that I don’t like that I don’t need and that
feel very awkward to me, so I would not say that this is the one, but it’s getting closer. Okay, so that one was nice, it
had some really cool features but honestly, I’m kind
of really distracted while I’m lookin’ at these other houses, because I’m just thinkin’
about this last house that we’re about to go to, because my mom already
hyped it up so much. She got me excited about it.
– I didn’t hype it. I just thought it was
everything you were lookin’ for, that’s all.
– You said, this is the one. – Because it’s what you’re lookin’ for. – Which, I mean that’s good,
but what I’m saying is, I got my mind focused on that one. And I’m just ready to go see that one, and I’m not really paying close
attention to the other ones. So we’re finally going to go see it. Lord, I hope I like it, because– – You’re outta options.
– We ain’t got no more ideas. (laughing) I mean we would have to really what, like hire somebody?
– No, I mean what you need to hire somebody for, I
already know what’s out here. – Buy maybe you don’t
know, I mean I’m sayin’, if this really is not the one, then you don’t know anything else so, we gonna have to ask somebody else. – [Toni] No, you’re gonna have
to change your requirements. – No. (laughing) – You’re gonna have to
change your requirements as far as location, as far as– – Well location, yeah,
but I don’t want to, so hopefully this one is the
one, that’s what I’m saying. (chill dance music) They’re doing construction
behind me, so it’s kinda loud, but here we go, we ’bout to go look at it. (construction equipment humming) Okay, so we just went in the
office to talk to the lady. There’s a little discrepancy, ’cause my mom was showin’
me the wrong floor plan. She was showin’ me the
slightly bigger version of this house. It’s still pretty much all the same, but this house is actually
slightly different, slightly smaller than
what she told me it was. It should still be good,
but we’re about to walk in and get my first reaction. (construction equipment humming) First of all, this door is cool. I mean, it seems like overall
you can see everything, but it looks really pretty,
and I think she said that they have a
different glass that’s not – Oh that would be good.
– Like a textured glass, so you wouldn’t be able
to see straight through. But it has this little hallway thingy in your front door, where you’re not just, your front door is not
right on the street. You’re kinda hidden back here anyway. – [Toni] And you can add a gate. – That’s cool, I like that feature, makes you feel more privacy, more secure. But yeah, so you walk in,
you’ve got the stairs, winding up like some of
the other ones we saw, which I like that feature, I
think that’s really pretty. But let’s start in the front,
so there’s actually a bedroom through here with a, this is the half bath through here. – [Toni] Oh that’s cute,
it’s got some (mumbles). – Yeah, see they’re gonna
get me with this house too, because they’ve got the
finishes and the decor, I can already tell, is
closer to my actual style, whereas some of the other houses are nice, but they’ve got it decorated
in such a country way, that’s it’s hard for
me to like it as much. – [Toni] Would this work for your studio? – It would, I like the fact
that it has a bigger window, and it has more windows up there. So it brings in more light–
– Look how tall these ceilings are. – They’re like two-story ceilings almost. But I was telling my
mom that, for my studio, it doesn’t really so much
have to be a technical, fully set up studio, it’s
more so like a glam room with some camera equipment in it. So I kinda wanna put in shelves
where I can put my makeup and stuff like that, so I feel
like I could do that in here like maybe on this wall. – [Toni] And then when you
were doing your makeup, you could just go
straight into the bathroom and have a–
– Yeah, ’cause this full bath through here, through the bedroom. – [Toni] Look how tall these doorways are. This is what makes a
house feel very spacious. I think these are like
10-foot, I don’t even know. 10-foot door. No, it’s like at least 9-foot. – Yeah, this is a nice
bathroom in here too. I like the more minimal shower. – [Toni] Nice little closet. – So this could be my extra, so if this is gonna be my glam
room, bedroom studio thing, then this is just like an extra closet for my extra whatever, shoes accessories. Getting ready in here,
whatever, filming in here, if I need to go wet my beauty blender. It’s got nice little storage
in the shower and stuff, this is nice. – [Toni] What do you
think about this floor? – This?
– Mm hmm. – I like, this is the
type, ’cause I want wood, but I don’t necessarily want dark wood. – [Toni] Is this wood, or is it tile? – [Raven] I think it’s
actually the tile stuff, yeah. – [Toni] Oh my gosh, that’s even better. – ‘Cause I like the more light colors, so this is the type of thing
I would go for, actually. – [Toni] Okay, this would
have french doors on it. – [Raven] So this is
the office, yeah, right? – [Toni] Yeah. It’s painted really dark, which
makes it hard to photograph. – I think that we wouldn’t,
I would have it white. But this would be my actual office. So that would be my glam room,
where I keep my camera stuff and all my makeup and stuff,
and I could film videos in here, but this would by my office, where I’m editing, I
have my computer desk. They don’t have it set
up like that right now, they have it as a sitting room really, but I would have a desk. Has a big window. Got some stuff right there. – [Toni] You put stuff up there. – Yeah, this house has
a lot of little things where you can put little
things and have your decor. So through here, this is what’s different, what I’m slightly, just a
tiny bit disappointed about, ’cause I was looking at
the wrong floor plan. This laundry room is a little bit smaller than what I was looking
at, but it’s still big. Like it still has the sink. They’ve got these, not actual cabinets, but they’ve got some
storage stuff up here. You do have storage down below the sink. So that fits what I wanted, there’s a little coat closet right here. – [Toni] And you could
possibly put a bench or a mudroom right here. – ‘Cause this is the garage door. And this is what I like
and what I didn’t like about some of the other houses, is where the laundry room was. To me, your laundry room
is supposed to be next to your garage. So I like this layout, and
it makes sense that you walk, you could have your mudroom right here, your laundry room and your coat closet. That makes sense. – [Toni] Okay, you like this arch? – This I like, because
it feels very fancy. Doesn’t feel like standard,
cookie cutter home, it feels like nice, something different. Ooh.
(Toni laughs) Ooh. Okay, let me
(Toni laughs) focus in on the first thing.
– I’m trying to get the back lit, okay. – So okay, the first
thing, really, that you see when you walk in here is this. This I love.
– Look how tall. – So this actually opens. And I think you can keep pushing it. (Toni laughs) This is an upgrade,
this door is an upgrade, and it costs like, I bet you like $12,000. But it’s cool. And it leads you out into the patio. – [Toni] Which you could do a
lot, custom-wise, with this, with the outdoor kitchen,
you could do seating. And it goes all the way
up, that’s what they mean by the two-story cover. – So I’d like, I dunno,
can you put a big fan? – Oh yeah.
– Coming down from there. I would put like a fan,
you could put like a grill and your patio furniture, table, chairs. This is really nice. – [Toni] You gon’ let all
your air conditioning out. Right now. (laughs) – Yeah, this is cool, like
if you’re having a party, like a barbecue. Open this up, got people
comin’ in and out, yeah, you’d be wasting
your air conditioning, but (laughs) it’s really pretty. And they’ve also got a
normal door off the kitchen if you don’t wanna open
up this whole big thing. But this, see this might be
an upgrade that I have to get, ’cause that’s really cool. So anyway, in the living room. I’m trying to take it all in first. So the tall ceilings, I love that, with the beams on the ceilings, I like. This is cool with the fireplace. I like the fact that it has a
fireplace in the first place. That’s a really nice feature. And I like how this is
kinda sleek and minimal, the way they’ve got thing going. – [Toni] They got some sleek
and minimal upgrade money for you too. (laughs) – Yeah, remember, this has
$100,000 worth of upgrades in here, so, the standard plain, cheaper
version of this house would look a lot different. Now here’s another thing that’s different about what I was expecting,
’cause we were looking at the wrong floor plan,
this pantry is different, Because on the other one, it’s a bigger, wider pantry.
– But this is a huge pantry. – That’s what I was gonna say. But this is still big, so you
think of how the other one was like twice as big as this. – [Toni] Yeah, but who needs that? – It’s not a butler’s pantry, but it is a very large pantry anyway. – [Toni] What about this kitchen? – Now I don’t like this.
– No, the cabinets are not your style,
I get it, but just imagine it with your–
– So the kitchen itself, imagine it with my white
cabinets that I like. – [Toni] But look at how long this island, look at this island. – This island is huge, four bar stools. And what I think is cool is all this I don’t know, like this cool, how they have the microwave right here, and it’s got double ovens. – [Toni] Display lighting up there. – Yeah, this stove area
looks real nice and rich too. Expensive. Now this is probably expensive. – [Toni] Yeah. – ‘Cause they’ve got the backsplash going all up on up this whole
wall with the backsplash tile. That’s just a waste of money.
– I know. – So I probably won’t have that. That’ll just be a regular wall. This is big, ’cause they’ve
got a full dining table sized table in here. It doesn’t have a full
dining room in here, which is good, ’cause I didn’t want one. But this area is so big,
that if you were entertaining or having thanksgiving or
whatever, it’s big enough, like you don’t need a dining room. – [Toni] So what do you think so far? – I like it, I don’t have
any complaints so far, obviously except stuff that
I’d be changing anyway, but the actual house itself, there’s nothing that I don’t like. – [Toni] Okay, so far. – Ooh! This room is big, it
feels so big with the– – Look at those ceilings.
– With the tall ceilings. – [Toni] Ooh wee. – Got again, these big ol’ nightstands and still more space for
this big ol’ king sized bed. I like this whole setup. I like the type of furniture
that they have in here. Oh wow, see yeah they’ve
got all this upgraded tile and stuff in here, you
know this (mumbles). So this bathroom feels
very spacious and bright and open and has this big window over here above the tub. Somebody would say that
they hope that I get a what’s this called, standalone tub? It’s really pretty, it
looks more contemporary, more modern or something. That’s a nice touch and how they have the faucet over here. And the toilet closet
is big for some reason. You could put another
little shelf in there. Frameless. – [Toni] It’s got a bench in there, you can sit down, shave your legs. (bench thumps)
– Ooh! (Toni laughs) Didn’t see that there. (Toni laughing) And it’s got this– – Oh, it’s got a rain shower.
– Rainfall thing. I think the lady in the office said that, to add all this tile in the
whole shower to the ceiling, costs $12,000 for this
tile, and it’s not cute, so I probably wouldn’t
spend that extra money to do anything like that. I do like the fact that
they’ve got this fancy different type of tile in here. This is the closet. (laughs) There is a good amount of space in here. Yeah. – I mean it’s not huge.
– It’s not the biggest closet we’ve ever seen in all the
houses that we’ve looked at. I think the biggest closet was the one in that big mansion house
that we looked at last time, which you guys were like, oh
get that one, get that one, but y’all already know that
that one was way too big. It had like four more
rooms than I really wanted, and although that all
white bathroom was amazing, it was just too, yeah that was too much. But that one had a huge closet. This one is not that much smaller. It is smaller, but it’s still big. And it has this, what is this? – [Toni] Storage. – Oh, ’cause this is under the stairs. So if I need extra storage
for my suitcases maybe. – [Toni] Yeah, that’d be good. – At least then, I could
shove it back here. This looks like it would
be a little playhouse for Ziya or something. And then I would probably
definitely be doing custom closets. So this is just kind of
like standard random stuff that they put in here. But I would have it like–
– Floor to ceiling. – You know, how you see like
in Carli Bybel’s closet, where she has all the shelves and the– – [Toni] But a mini version. – Yeah, a mini version
of Carli Bybel’s closet, where I can really, ’cause this
is not maximizing the space. Like you could make it go
all the way up, you know. So I would maximize it.
– But you could customize both closets, like the
closet in the studio room. – Yeah–
– And this closet. – You could do cartwheels in here. I’m just trying to give
y’all a sense of like, ’cause I feel like it’s
hard to tell on camera how big something really is. So going back through the living room, that’s the whole downstairs. – [Toni] From upstairs? – So over the balcony,
you see the living room. – [Toni] On this side, and on this side, you see
the front of the house. – So when you first come up the stairs, it leads you straight into … So this’ll be the playroom. This is really nice, ’cause
it feels bright and open, like compared to that
other one that we saw, where everything was all blue,
and it was like a dungeon, this one feels like a lot more open an area,
it’s really big too. They’ve got this whole big
ol’ table here in the middle. – [Toni] That’s a cute idea though. – The TV, storage for toys, you could
have a lot more storage for toys, ’cause this
whole wall over here, you could put little cubbies
and stuff, like low down. For Ziya’s toys. So then through the play
room, this room is optional. This is the media room that you can add on for extra money, which
I don’t think I will, just ’cause I didn’t
really want a media room, but it’s cool. I mean it’s cool, they got
all these speakers built in, a couch, and then the main TV. To me, I don’t think I
would add this media room, just because you can put a TV in here, and you could set it up different. Like if this was closed off, you could put a couch right here. So this is a … – [Toni] It’s just a bedroom. – I’m tryin’, I don’t know
what bedroom would be what I’d have to look at all them first. But this is a big bedroom. Good size, it does only
have that one window, but this would either be a
guest room or Ziya’s room, depending on which room is better. But yeah, it’s pretty spacious. It’s got the closet over
there, little walk-in closet. And then it’s got a, so these are Jack and
Jill bathrooms again. Ooh, this sparkly countertop. Vanity and then you come through. Toilet. And then tub. Got some cute tile on the tub. The Jill vanity and the Jill closet. This room feels smaller. This is the smaller one,
I think, a little bit. It has a bigger window. – [Toni] I think according
to the floor plan, the bedrooms are the exact same size. – They’re the same? I mean, it’s not small, but for me, I’m trying to pick which
one’s gonna be the guest room and which one’s gonna be Ziya’s room. So whichever room is like,
the biggest or the best, that would be Ziya’s room. I feel like I would make
this one a guest room. – [Toni] Yeah, I think the
other one should be Ziya’s room, ’cause it’s closer to the playroom. – Yeah, that too, and I
like the fact that that one, like how the closet is in the room and not part of the Jack
and Jill bathroom thing. It just feels like this room is more, I dunno, more of a complete room, and that one can just be the guest room. – [Toni] So, could you
see yourself in this house with your own, personal customizations? I mean … – Yeah, like I said,
there’s nothing that I just really don’t like about it. If I could think of one thing
that I don’t like about it, it would maybe be like
up here in the bedrooms, if it had more windows or something, more light coming in the bedroom. This playroom area is perfect. – [Toni] You might be able
to put in an extra window. – Yeah, it feels like it
should have another window on this side right here too. – [Toni] You might be able to do that. – My main selling points on this house, what I really love about it, is the, this, like the living room, kitchen area, like how tall it is, all the windows, I really like that big
old sliding door thing. I would not have this railing. I don’t like the color of it
or the style of this railing. I don’t like the cabinets in the kitchen. I don’t like these curtains,
and obviously stuff like that, that I don’t have to have the
same way that they have it in here, and some of the stuff
that they spent their money on upgrading, like the tile in the shower, no, the tile on this wall over here, no. Adding the media room, no. Like there’s stuff I wouldn’t do, but as a base, and then I could
put my own features on it. – [Toni] Two thumbs up? – Yeah. (laughs) Okay guys, so yes that is my house. I did end up going with that last house
that I just showed you, house number three. I already kinda hyped it
up we were going into it, you could probably already
tell that I really liked it, but yes, that is the one that I chose, that’s the one that I’m going with. And yeah, it’s really happening,
I really liked that house. So yes, house number three is
the model home that I chose, and I just need to put a
deposit down on an actual lot, an empty piece of land,
where then they are going to start building me my
own fresh, new version of that model home. So like I said, everything
will look exactly the same. Everything where the rooms
are, where the bathrooms are, the staircase, the balcony, the archway, the big windows in the living room, all that stuff is going
to look exactly the same, but I’m going to be picking
my own colors and finishes for everything. And it’s gonna be a brand new house. Never lived in before,
no demons, no ghosts. The model home that we just looked at, there’s actually two
versions of that home. And one of ’em is slightly
bigger, slightly better. It’s the same house, same exact layout, except one of them has
a bigger laundry room, a bigger pantry, an
extra desk office space, and it has a three car garage
instead of a two car garage. So the model home we
looked at does not have all that extra stuff. It’s just the plain, basic
version of the house, well not basic, but it’s the
smaller version of that house, and there actually is a second
version that you can get that has the bigger laundry
room, the bigger pantry, and all that stuff that I just said. They don’t have a model home of it built that you can go look at, and nobody in the neighborhood
has one of those yet, but it is something that you can do. So I decided that I wanna do that. I’m like, the model home
already looks great. Honestly everything in here looks great, but you’re givin’ me the option to have a bigger laundry
room, a bigger pantry, an extra desk space,
and a three car garage for obviously it costs more money, but it’s not that that much more money. I was like, I feel like
I should just go for it. You know, just do it so that
I’m not regretting it later and feeling like, oh I really could’ve used
that extra space later. So I’m excited, I really
really like that house. ‘Cause the thing is, I like
the model home so much, so now, thinking that I’m gonna have
a slightly better version of the model home, and
there’s a bunch of different optional stuff, stuff that
obviously costs extra money and upgrades that you can get. The model home did have
upgrades already on it, like certain things like you can make the master
bedroom a little bit bigger or smaller, you can make
the patio bigger or smaller. You can add a media room,
you can do different add-ons to the house, but the model home had the bigger master bedroom, so they did have
that on the model home. They also had the bigger patio. Obviously that patio was
huge that I just showed you. So those are two things
that cost extra money, that they were showing
you on the model home. They always put all the extra money stuff on the model home, ’cause
they want you to walk in and see all this stuff
that costs extra money, and they rope you in, and
you see how nice it looks, and then you’re like, oh
when I build my house, I kinda wanna add that too. And a couple other little
random things in there that are extra that I will be getting. So not only am I going to be
getting the version two version of this house, which is already bigger, but I’m also adding on some extra stuff and upgrading some stuff. Hopefully that makes sense. I know I need to go into more
detail in my future videos, because this is going to be, obviously, a series on my channel, I’m
not just gonna stop here with these videos, I’m
going to take you guys along the whole process
of buying the house, building the house, decorating
the house, all that stuff. I’m going to take you guys along with me, do a video for each thing. But it’s going to take about a year. A year to build this house. And it’s going to take even
more time to furnish it and get the custom closets put in and get the security system
put in and get the gate up, and you know, there’s all
this stuff that goes into it, so it’s going to be
literally a year from now until you guys really
really can see the house. But it’s going to be a fun journey. There’s going to be lots of
videos during the process, so I hope you guys can stay tuned. Make sure you subscribe to my channel and turn your notifications on. Hit that little bell next
