Thoughts for Thursday: New House First Floor- Before

One thing that makes me so mad at myself is that I never thoroughly documented all the changes and renovations we made to our old house while we lived there.  I've decided this time around I want to share our progress from start to finish (mostly for my personal scrap book) so that I can remind myself of the changes we've made even if they aren't "internet perfect" and see how far we've come.

This house is big so our changes and renovations will be a lot slower this time around. We've decided to pick a room and go room by room making whatever changes we can afford at the time and then moving on when we feel it's complete (as complete as it can be before I change my mind again lol).  That's our plan for the moment, I'll keep you posted if  it changes.

Here is what the house looked like when we first saw it:



Living Room

Formal Dining Room


Family Room

Sun Room


So there you have it!  It's such a great house and we couldn't pass up the space for the price!

Now it's your turn!

  16. I wanted to tell your readers about an experience we had with a new realtor. He was hungry and really helped us find a house that I was not even looking for. He took us to home $25,000 above our range even though we said no. We found one and were able to get the buyer to come down $25,000, so we found the perfect house in the range we needed.
