Here we go! Your first virtual tour of the house! Along with a list of things we’re working on….
I am CERTAIN that this will be added to about a million times, (I think I’ve added at least 12 things since I started writing this post a few weeks ago) but for now… this is our to-do list! Projects we have planned to get done as we go along, and while it’s a long list and a LOT of hard work, we’re super excited to get the party started (and have already started some which you’ll be seeing soon!) We’ll be updating this list as we go along but for now, here’s all the before pictures of the house taken from the listing, or during our final walk through before we moved anything into the house! And please… excuse the iphone photos, I accidentally packed my camera away so I only had the phone to take before photos with! Oh well, it will just make the afters look THAT MUCH BETTER!
Lets start with a list of things we LOVE about the House and then get on to our list of things we’re working to change!
Things we LOVE:
-Hardwood Floors Throughout- Seriously, LOVE this. It was one of both of our “close handed issues”. We just could NOT see ourselves in a carpeted house!
-LOTS of windows- There’s just nothing like Natural Light and the photo/video sides of ourselves LOVE that we have all these windows with gorgeous sunlight peaking through ALL DAY LONG!
-Exposed Brick- When we started our house hunt I had decided that wherever we ended up, I was going to be installing an exposed brick wall SOMEWHERE. When we walked in and found it already here… Well that was just another way for us to know it was meant to be
-Reading Room/Secondary Office- We love this little room on the front of the house that’s nothing but windows (and one wall) that lets in all sort of gorgeous light. It’s the perfect peaceful place to do some work and watch the cars drive by. The same could be said for my office only with a little more nature-friendly view!
