A homemake-over that's been long-overdue.... that's our previous home, now in the rental category. We put over 20 sets of hardware through-out the never ending renovation this week. Painting, yardwork, flooding clean-up. I actually rented a pressure washer to remove stains that had been there since we moved in. For now, here's the house after our first structural renovation.(2 trees, 2 storms & termites) It led to roof/paint & gutters. Interior structural changes & new floors. We also put a door in the basement, bottom left, with a driveway. It is now a small office/closet apartment. The best change we made was removing an entire interior brick facade along the fireplace wall. There was no door to the sunroom behind the fireplace & it was all brick. Very 70's- very un-cool. Now the fireplace is white & fresh. The sunroom is more of a study with a sunny nook with lots of potential.
What we did most recently, was clean up after a renter, a good renter, but needed cleaning. Paint, touch-up & change all remaining yucky mis-matched fixture. We went from brass to oil rubbed bronze finishes, & it's beginning to look almost complete.
We were blessed not to be hit as hard as so many in the Atlanta area, who took major hits from the recent storms that flooded the area for over a week.
We are contemplating a copper overhang for the basement entrance, need to have it fabricated, but will complete that project nicely.
So if I've been a little absentee on blog-world, you'll forgive me. We took a little fall break to visit family and check on house. Back to school, scouts & gymnastics next week!
