Hello All - This is officially my first blog post EVER! I decided to start this blog to document all of the home projects and renovations we have being doing at our current home and the previous homes we have owned.
We recently bought our 3rd home about 5 months ago and have already done some major renovations that I am excited to show to everyone. In this first post, I am going to show you all the before photos of the home and then take you through each room with it's renovations. With this blog I am also hoping to highlight some of my talented friends home projects too, I have very handy friends and can't wait to show off some of their work! Thanks for following along as I learn to navigate the blog world!
The Accent House
OK, so I am sure everyone reading this is a fan of the home renovation shows (Fixer Upper) where they name the houses they are showcasing. I have decided to do the same, because, why not?! I named this house the "Accent House" because literally EVERY room in this house had an accent wall...even the hallway.
When I first saw this house, I immediately connected with it. I was very picky about the type of house we chose since we would be living in it, so it had to be livable while still having enough potential to make some major upgrades to hopefully make a profit.
Great layout - I love that there are three bedrooms on one floor and how much space we had on the other three floors of the home
Great yard - The previous owners did an amazing job with the landscape and even had a little playhouse in the backyard. The kitchen looks out into the backyard so I can easily watch the kiddos.
Lots of space - We have over 3,000 square feet in this house!
Neighborhood perk - there is a beautiful open space down the street with a lake and walking trails
Paint - The accent walls needed to go so LOTS of painting was in our future!
Small master bath & closet - The master bath and closet were pretty small so we wanted to expand both of these areas
Floors - There were so many different types of flooring throughout the house, it felt very disjointed and choppy. New floors were a must.
Guest Suite - We do not live near family so we are often hosting guests. There was not a bedroom/bathroom situation for our guests that would be comfortable so this was another con that we wanted to address when moving into the home.
Here are some of the photos from Zillow when we found the house:
