Before and After.

current picture of our home
Yes, there's a lot of pictures up here, but I really wanted to show just how much we have "remodeled and updated" our home. When we bought it, it was completely outdated. I mean NOTHING had been updated. We knew we had our work cut out for us! Check out some of the things we've done...


Kitchen before the semi update

now, yes we still are in the process of this one. We are in the process of picking out new counter tops and back splash. Then next year is new fridge and oven!
Living Room Before (below), After (above)
yes, it always looks like that with toys!!
notice the teal wool carpet! It was so old, it was actually worn down to the wood underneath in the high traffic areas!! And it stunk like old lady!

Dining Room Before (below), after (above)
Where the sliding door is now, there was just a window before.
We built a deck and the sliding door goes right onto it.

The new "arched" front doorway.

This is the travertine that replaced the ugly gold and off white linoleum in the bathroom and have the same design but bigger in the kitchen to replace the orange and brown linoleum.

We ripped down all the peach colored "fake" tile on the walls and replaced it with wainscoting in the bathroom and in the tub is plain white tile. What a chore that was. We actually did that 1 week after Sammie was born! We had to run across the street (to my in laws) in December weather to take a shower and then run home!

Awesome new sink, counter, mirror and vanity.

As you can see, we have been really busy with not only inside projects, but outside projects as well for the past 4.5 years. And pretty soon, I hope, we will be finishing our basement. If you have free hands, and want some free beer...please come help us!!!
