House Tour

Welcome to our home take a seat, relax, and enjoy the viewing. Our house is a major work in progress so there isn't too many after pictures but only progress. Remember we only moved in last August. With the crazy winter we didn't accomplish as much as we would have liked too. So here we go the first round of the many house tours to come.  - xoxo

The House is on a double lot making our front and back yard massive! Now that the snow has melted we've started working on the irrigation system. Before we know it we'll have a yard full of grass.

Front Yard:

Back Yard:

Living room:

We divided up the living room into two separate spaces. However, one really doesn't have a purpose yet. Unfortunely we were unable to use the fireplace this winter as it has a crack. Something on the summer project list. Nick stacked the wood just for looks. As you can tell paint goes a long way.

Area #1

Area #2

Kitchen/ Dining Room

 Like the living room we broke the space in the kitchen up into two spaces. Half to be used as a eat-in dining area.  I can't wait until we really tackle the kitchen! Read about removing the random cabinets here.


All the rooms needed a complete overhaul and we did just that. Paint, carpet, and new base boards. Want more? Check out the master bedroom post here.


Guest Room #1

Guest Room #2


Not much to say other than it still has a loooonnnnng way to go.


Before the hallway was dark like the rest of the house, but with a little paint and time we were able to brighten it right up.

Full Bath

The first major project part DIY. Read the full story here and here.

1/2 Bath
The tiny bathroom is located just off the mudroom and was in need of some serious tlc. For more details check out the full post here.
