If you are new to my blog welcome. A little background - we received the keys to our new home on Dec. 17,2016. During these last six months with trying to get settled, we also jumped right in and two weeks after moving in started the remodel of our downstairs and kitchen. We feel like we have made some major improvements to our "Builder Basic", but still have a lot to do. I am so excited to show you the progress we've made so far.
Time: 6 Months Cost: $0.00 Difficulty: Easy
So WELCOME, let me show you around. One of the things I loved most about this home was all the different angles and arches in these fabulous tall ceilings. The living room and dining area are always so bright from the light that comes in through these huge windows. I took this shot from the stairs looking back towards the front door.
I kept the decor really simple and light. Gold and cream is the background for most of the house and a little aqua in this room. Still a work in progress, I need to find a rug for this area, but I just haven't seen what I want yet.
I love the dining area, so nice to have such a bright spot and big enough to add all 4 leaves and entertain all the family.
To see the details of the full renovation - click here. We saved a ton of money by keeping some of the cabinets, rearranging a few and adding a few new ones. New paint, granite, appliances, lighting and floors and we had a major remodel.
Upstairs I claimed the loft as the "Girl Cave". This is where I have my office. A gateleg table serves as my desk and a small bookcase holds all the necessary items I need to have at hand.
The master bedroom is always bright and cheerful with tons of light coming in from that huge window.
As soon as we finished the kitchen and downstairs, we started out back. The last two months have been all about the backyard. We started with a clean slate - nothing at all. Just the perfect place to add my dream - - -
A POOL - This was just finished one week ago. I am loving it. Still tons of landscaping to do, but the pool is fabulous. Now we have the patio and tons of landscaping to makeover, but all in due time. I am just going to swim and relax for a while.
