Then and Now

Posted by on July 7, 2017

As any homeowner knows, house projects are a never-ending to-do list. However, it can be fun to see how your house transforms over time. We’ve been changing a lot of things in our home in just a little over a year!

outside of our house last fall — we have since gotten new windows (without grids) and are in the process of tearing out the bushes in front for some new landscaping

Step 1: chopping off all the branches

Step 2: digging up the root

crazy wind and snowstorm destroyed our umbrella!

Sawing off dead tree branches (an HOA violation)

my first time at the house meeting Toby — sitting in the room that would later be turned into my music room!

old kitchen window — we could hardly see out!

new living room window — no more grids

old kitchen faucet — broke because our water pressure valve was broken and the pressure was way too high!

got our plumbing problems resolved and got a fancy new sink with sensors that I love to use while cooking!

old kitchen look — old light, old windows, no drapes

bedroom hallway — Steve’s old bedspread and set-up, and blank walls!
