It’s been a year. I can hardly believe that one year ago, we bought our first house. Only 29 more years left on that mortgage, baby! In that span of time we have done a lot of improving on the house. Most of it has been cosmetic, but we’ve done some bigger improvements as well. I wanted to let you in on the work we have finished and the plans we have for the future.
Below are some “before and now” pictures so you can see how the house has changed since closing day. Hover your mouse over the images to see how the rooms looked before we moved in, and move your mouse off the pictures again to see how they look today.
What else do we have on our To-Do list?
Break up and replace the concrete in our driveway – JACK HAMMER!
Look into removing the flowering pear tree that is too close to our roof (and foundation)
Paint and furnish our sun porch
Fix and paint our backyard fence
Finish painting our porch and soffits
Plenty of other pie in the sky ideas!
Thanks to all of you who have encouraged and supported us as we make our house into a home. I hope you enjoy reading about our forays in to the world of home improvement… because there’s more where that came from!
