before and after

I was going through old pictures on the computer today and started looking through the pictures of our house renovation from start to finish. It's been a very fun process and I have learned a great deal. I wish I had the money to just do it as a hobby--ha!




I really never thought I would see our driveway again at this point. Jon spent a lot of time shoveling mud and gravel off of it to finally uncover it again. I also split the rear end of my favorite jeans wide open stepping up onto that porch with no steps on it. I really wished I knew Spanish that day. Everyone there got a good laugh (myself included).

The transformation is gorgeous! I am a tad bit jealous of your brick floor (I've always wanted one!).

Your place looks cozy & inviting! Well done! :)
