So leading up to when this new series will start, I will share with you what our home was like when we first bought it and some different projects we've done so far.
We bought our home a few months before we got married, in January of 2012 (we actually did our first walk-through the day after my birthday the previous month!) Our home was actually only on the market for 4 days when our offer was accepted. Right price and great location! (You go about 4 miles in either direction and hit either his parents or mine!) It's a typical 1950's rambler with an unfinished basement. Here are a few photos of what it looked like the day we closed:
The front door (actually 1 of 2 front doors)
Living Room (I set up that coffee table that night- we got Chinese food and had our first meal on the floor!)
Looking towards the back hallway in the house
Front coat closet in the hallway above
Awesome 50's blue bathroom!
Only door to the backyard which is located in the 3rd bedroom/current office
Other side of the office
2nd front door
So there you have the beginnings of our house! I will slowly show you some of what we've worked on since then so you get a basis of where I'll be starting from in January!
