I've been wanting to put together a little before and after of what we've done at the house so far. We've had the house for one full year now and have made quite a bit of progress so far, although its mostly been elbow grease, paint and furniture. No major remodeling of anything.
Its kind of fun to look back and see how far we've come, considering we just go a few times per month for a day or two at a time...
Starting with the progress we've made in the living room area
Here's right inside the front door, looking toward the back of the house
Looking to the right toward the master
Looking in the opposite direction from the dinning room, looking back toward the front door
then back across at the master
