Our Home

(Fall 2008 – Present)

We fell in love with this 1960’s ranch early on in our home search, and jumped at the chance to buy it when the price was slashed over the summer of 2008.  Four bedrooms, 3.5 baths, an actual yard and almost 2,700 square feet just begging for some love – let me tell you, this place was a dream come true after the tiny tan townhouse!  After several months (yes, months!) of negotiations, inspections, dealing with construction loans, etc., the house was ours!!!!  Then we got to start in on the fun stuff – RENO!

As you can see, our little labor of love is still a work in progress, but I’m pretty proud of what we’ve accomplished since we moved in the day after Christmas in 2008.  Take a look at the before and after pics!
