Hi friends! Are y'all ready to get a little personal on the blog today? I've been so eager and anxious to share pictures of our home renovation with you! Though there are still some things to be completed throughout the house, we are absolutely loving the feeling of being HOME. I have dreamed of having a permanent home for so many years now, so this house was worth the wait!
Not much stayed in this house...We got rid of all flooring, lighting, door frames, baseboards, texture on walls, and cabinets. We gutted both bathrooms and started from scratch. We added new trim, crown molding, light fixtures, recess lighting, flooring, cabinets, appliances, added on a laundry room, and built out storage closets. Phew! Makes me tired just thinking about it!
Some of our favorite things about our new home:
1. Our dog, Presley, now has a huge backyard and sits by the door all day long begging to go outside. Although the begging part gets on my nerves, I am so glad that he can finally be a normal dog and enjoy time spent outside!
2. We have great neighbors who have been very patient with us for our construction noise and constant activity. We are very lucky!
3. Getting to make it our own. We can decorate how we want, use spaces how we want, and treat it however we want to because at the end of the day it is our home together.
Lastly, we love having to learn about a new area. Where the nearest grocery store is, quick bite to eat, and outdoor activities. It stretches us past our comfort zone and makes us branch out which is always good!
Below are pictures of the before (on the left) and what the house looked like before we unpacked our belongings (on the right). Enjoy! :)
P.S. We did paint the exterior and added shutters, but we aren't quite finished with landscape. I'll add pictures when we spruce the place up. :)
