Our House

Matt and I are in the process of refinancing our home and it has caused us to take a look at what we have done to our house since we purchased it in the spring of 2005. We are very proud of the nasty, dirty, long hours, hard work that we have done on our home to make it look the way it does!  Would you like to take a stroll down memory lane with us?

Old and VERY small deck.

New much larger deck completed Fall 2008.

Ugly kitchen!

More of the ugly kitchen - take note of the exterior door and window that look into our dining room/living room which was an addition to the original house and apparently they didn't feel that it was necessary to remove the exterior window and door.

Updated kitchen - new floor, painted cabinets and new appliances.

Yuck...the old bathroom.

The updated bathroom.

Our old dining room...check out the wood paneled walls and green shag carpet - not seen in this picture is the suspended tile ceiling.

New dining room! Anna and Pumpkin just had to be in the picture!

Old "small" living room with a window looking into "big" living room - this was so weird!

New small living room - we almost never use this room.

Hope that you enjoyed our tour and seeing the improvements that we have made on our home!

*All of the "old" pictures of our house were taken before we purchased the house so the belongings in the pictures were the former owners, a very nice old lady who has since passed away.
