current house: before & after

I love our current house. We moved in here in May 2012. We immediately started doing updates and renovations. Over the past 5 years we painted every room, changed all the doors and hardware, took out a bathroom and made it into a bar, took down walls to redo the kitchen, changed the carport to a 4th bedroom/office with full bathroom and painted the outside.

It has all been a labor of love. I can't believe we're saying good bye to our first home! I wanted to share a few pictures - that were taken by our realtor's photographer - to show what we did!

(we had to take down walls for this, so everything is new!)

(in the back of this photo, to the left, is where we took out a bathroom and added a bar)

And for fun... a before pic! This was from the listing before we bought it.

(built this fireplace & added a gate)

(painted the garage doors, which made a huge difference!)

And before:

I'll share more rooms and pictures another day!

  3. Wow, amazingly living space") Yes, changes and decorations show love for your home. I see this in every detail of the interior, great work!

    Mmm... We haven't started redecoration yet, just I have found the carrier company more info here because the intercity move entails certain organizational difficulties, and it is better if it`s done by professionals. Guarantee of rapid relocation, without any blah blah blah) I never really planned to take so much time off for the move actually, but it turns out I really needed it...
