I mentioned in my Design Love post that my family is moving and we’re in the process of renovating our new house. When we purchased this house it was in very rough condition. The electricity was horrible and the plumbing was just as bad. There was mold in the basement and there were holes in the walls and ceilings. My grandfather is a wizard at building and renovating and he has been working very hard! He has virtually rebuilt the house from the bones up. I can’t wait until we are all finished!
Here are a few photos from the beginning before we started!
As you can see, we started with some really wild colors and a lot of crazy! It is probably hard to get a good idea of the layout from the pictures, but it was a bit claustrophobic, especially the upstairs. We now have a completely different layout in the house and extra ceiling height in the upstairs. We have made a lot of progress since last July when these photos were taken – some landscaping, gutting, framing, and now a small addition.
Another house post coming soon! 🙂
