Before & After

Well, not quite "after" since obviously we're still working on the landscaping, etc. But for those who are wondering how the house is coming along, I give you exhibit A & B (or is it B & A?) ... and a little something in the middle just for fun.

Oct 2008

BEFORE - this is from the first time I ever saw the house in person (last October).

Construction has begun

DURING - note original roof & windows still on, porch & landscaping gone.

Aug 2009

CURRENT - progression to date. Still quite a bit to do, but at least it looks like a house again.

All things considered, it's not even been a year since we bought the house, and really only 5 months or so of serious demo & remodeling going on, I'd say we've made tremendous progress. I'm hopeful that by the time our one year anniversary rolls around, it'll be 100% complete - inside and out.

That's all for now. Wasn't that a hoot?

Thanks -- it's a total 50's color. My contractor wasn't sure about it when I told him what the color was going to be, nor were some of the neighbors. But it fits, and also, who cares what THEY think? LOL.

It's really looking good. Can't wait to see the final product.
