10 years

I can't believe it's been 10 years since we bought our home. I grew up in a similar home - 1950's brick ranch, so I am always drawn to homes like that. I love our house. It's not very big - just 3 bedrooms and 1 bath (the one bath is the big challenge!) But it's perfect for me, Joe and the pup.
I thought a great way to celebrate our 10 year anniversary, would be to show you the before and afters. We took pictures the day we had the inspection, so the previous owner was still living here at the time. We saw lots of potential with the bones of the house! So over the next little bit I will share our 10 year transformation, and needless to say there's still a long list of "to-do's!"

We'll start with the exterior...

This was the picture of the house on the MLS listing. Pretty sweet, right? I love the big trees but we still manage to get a good bit of sunshine. The way it's set back of the street is also really nice.

And here she is on a snowy day a few years back. I have to say the yard is not in any shape in mid-January for blog worthy pics. So you can get the idea from this one. Maybe we'll come back in the spring for a better landscaping update!

And the floor plan - this will give you a feel to how the house is laid out. We do have nice size rooms which a great plus!

Well that's the exterior of our "Home Sweet Home." I look forward to taking y'all inside next!!
