It was so exciting to make some BIG updates to the house right away. The biggest thing to tackle was the back addition: replacing decrepit windows, tearing off lead paint covered siding and changing the color scheme. Looking at the before pictures now, it’s hard to believe that I wasn’t deterred from the get go!
I love how it turned out and the new fresh colors that I chose (specifically what I had in mind when I chose my roof). I wouldn’t have been able to do it without my parents and am so so grateful for all the work they put in.
It was also nice to be able to utilize my guest room and second bathroom in the way that I intended them to be used when I chose the house. My parents were comfy down there with their own space for an entire month, and since then I’ve made some updates that I think will make it even better the next time.
So without further ado, the picts that will tell you more than I could explain!
