Let’s Take it From the Top…

 This blog has been four years in the making and I have a lot of catching up to do, so here’s our story:

Ben bought this house in 2004.  It definitely lacked style then, but had an efficient  layout and strong bones.  He saw the potential right away and quickly purchased the house.  He tore out the dated, nicotine stained carpets, added a wood-burning fireplace and cut out and installed egress windows in our unfinished basement and new windows in the upper level. 

We met in 2005 and got married in 2006.  We started working on creating a home that reflected my style (and soon Ben saw the proverbial light).  Our first few projects involved a lot of MDF trim, an air nailer, and a lot of paint.  After two months, we had two bedrooms finished!  Check out the before pictures!  Yes, that is a man-sized dresser (built by Ben) and the red swatches are paint, not blood.

  1. I cannot believe the before pictures. It looks like a totally different house. You guys have made so much progress over the years and it has come such a long way! Can’t wait for more of the story.
