After nearly a year of renovations, the house was ready for us to move in! For the most part, we wanted the house to be a blank canvas when we moved in. "Moving in" entailed bringing in not only our furniture but much of John's grandparents' furniture as well (came with the house, go figure). That said, we wanted to see the rooms with our modge podge of furnishings before we selected paint and what not. We did, however, decide on a neutral color for the living room and used that color throughout for the time being. Fear of heights = we're not going to be repainting that room ourselves, ever!
Enjoy some of our favorite features of the house! Paint, textiles, furnishings, and decor coming soon (our never ending work in progress)!

|before and after...a little different, right?|
|before and after. we expanded the opening from the front door just a tad.|
|stairs now continue forward rather than turning. luckily, we were able to rework the handrails and posts.|
