New House Part 1

The Start of Some Before And Afters in the New Home...

We are still working on things, but I wanted to give you a taste of the work we've done so far...

Popcorn Ceilings Were The Very First thing to GO!

They came in and put plastic all over the walls, doors ...EVERYTHING

 BEFORE WINDOWS  You know you need new windows when half of them won't lock, screens torn up, you can hear everything outside and they are wet on the inside on a very DEW like morning in a Florida Winter! 

 AFTER    New Windows throughout the entire house and 
sliding doors in both the master and living rooms

Peek at Cabinets 

 We did a lot of work ourselves.  Help from family and friends when they were visiting or around.  We've learned patience, but also want to get it done ASAP so we can sit back and enjoy it all.  We've never experienced this remodeling stuff before ...we are pretty much gutting it all just not knocking down the walls.  We LOVE the location and the size of the's GREAT!

 Much More to Come so Stay Tuned...
