Our Homestead's Jaw Dropping Facelift

We've been putting blood, sweat, and tears into fixing up the Homestead, but nothing compared to what you are going to see today. Get prepared for a facelift transformation that will leave you speechless.
This is our homestead. This is how it looked when we first moved in four years ago, and how it has mostly looked since we've been here. It's a 1962 split level with multiple additions that had been added prior to us moving in.
We updated the portico to be structurally sound and gave it a little paint. So far, so good, but we knew there was going to be more work down the road. And that day has come...
New paint, new shutters, new window boxes, new flower garden... it's like an entirely new home.
