2010 Renovation Recap

We have worked a lot on our house this year and although I haven't had anything to share with you recently there will be more to come in early 2011. Currently we are tackling the basement and the two bathrooms will be the next projects after that is complete. To see all the before and after pictures of our house, check out the renovations tab at the top of my blog.

Our major progresses in 2010 were turning this:

Into this:


And this sad, sad fireplace:

Into this


As well as our Guest Bedroom renovation from this:

To this:

Casey also completed a major back patio transformation that I neglected to take pictures of before the fall. I will post those before in afters in the spring when everything is green and beautiful again!

There will be a lot to come in 2011, the basement transformation is sure to be HUGE. Can I remind you of what it looked like when we bought the house?


Yikes! Here it is in current condition:

Not sure which one is scarier! But, a total gut was necessary regardless of how the basement originally looked. We found lots of water damage, mold, and rotten wood behind the walls, all of which are being fixed and sealed so that no more water damage will occur. I hope to have more updates soon!

Photography Update:
As you may have noticed, I kinda failed to complete Project 365, but, on the bright side, I have learned a ton about photography throughout the year and hope to continue to progress throughout 2011. I am continuing to skill build and hope to do more photo shoots in the next year to practice even more!
