After several years of 'looking' for a new house, we found one worthy of making an offer on. The house had cute curb appeal, the inside was semi updated and the location was perfect. So that house went on the market (FSBO) on like a Saturday. We looked at it on Sunday. Made an offer on Monday morning. But a cash offer beat us! We offered more, and the cash people beat us again.
That was that.
We were deflated.
We finally just decided to go ahead and commit to adding on. We really like our 'hood so we are staying.
For now, anyway.
When all is done, we will have a master bed, bath and closet, a laundry room, a built in desk/work space, a screened in porch, and an additional porch space.
Okay here are some before and during shots:
We took the back porch off then replaced the hot water heater with a tankless hot water heater. You can
see the green color which was the house color many, many moons ago. Lookin pretty trashy.
I really dropped the ball on photographs from this point on. whoops.
We did have to take out two windows in the living room because of the add on. We did that several weeks before the actual construction began so that we'd have inside construction completed before the baby came.
Before the light was taken away. We miss those windows a lot.
And thats the end of that.
Okay, so these are from late October...
And finally, this is from yesterday.
