So we closed on our first home in February of 2012.
The first time I walked into the house, I was alone and instantly had a vision of what could be done in each individual space. Later that afternoon, I showed it to my wife and she was not immediately sold. The house had been vacant for several months and the previous owners left old furniture behind, the weeds were overgrown, and a few walls were given a going away present from the previous owners by way of a spray can. Fast forward to today, and so far we have re-done the kitchen, made the 4th bedroom into an office, and have made the house our home. We have allowed the home to evolve into what it is now (through late nights and long weekends) and to what it will become, hence the will of home.
With so much left to do, I want to be able to track the progress. First sharing what has been completed and then chronicling future projects. Here’s a few photos, pre-closing:
